After months of speculation, former England captain Wayne Rooney has followed Zlatan and moved to the MLS. While the move to D.C. United isn’t necessarily a surprise, it does indicate the speed of Rooney’s decline. Just two years ago, Rooney was captaining England to the European Championships and still playing regularly for Manchester United.
