Estrada leaves D.C. United

In news that will have shocked absolutely nobody, Estrada has had his loan terminated by the club. Since the arrival of Wayne Rooney, he has found playing time hard to come by. And with it being a World Cup year he will be wanting to seek regular game time. Good luck to the guy, he always put in the effort and that showed with his 4 goals and 4 assists in his 16 appearances for the Black & Red.

He returns to Deportivo Toluca in LigaMX with immediate effect.

D.C. United acquire Miguel Berry

D.C. United have just announced the signing of Columbus Crew forward Miguel Berry in a trade that will see $225k GAM head in the other direction. There is a potential $100k GAM extra depending on whether Berry hits certain performance related criteria. In addition to this, Columbus will retain a portion of any future trade fee.

Berry made his debut for Columbus last season and had a good return, scoring 8 times in 18 appearances (9 from the bench) and recording 2 assists. Despite hailing from Barcelona, Spain, he doesn’t take up an international slot. A 6’3 forward who will hopefully partner up well with Greek international Taxi Fountas. The Rooney Rebuild continues

Miguel has shown his talent and his ability to be a top finisher in this league over the past two seasons and we are excited to see him continue to develop under Wayne. His size, athleticism and goal-scoring ability will be a great addition to the roster as we head into a critical point in the season. We welcome him to the Club and are looking forward to integrating him with the roster.

Lucy Rushton, D.C. United General Manager

Sami Guediri earns 1st team contract

In a move that will surprise precisely no-one, Sami Guediri earns a first team contract after Brad Smith tore his ACL in the game against Philadelphia Union.

The contract is through to the rest of the season with options for both 2023 & 2024. Below is what the club have had to say about the deal.

Sami has been training with us regularly since preseason and has shown his value and quality in various aspects of play. We’re pleased to be able to add him to the roster at a pivotal point in the season and look forward to having him available for the rest of the year.

Lucy Rushton, D.C. United General Manager

Sami is another testament to the success of the Pathway 2 Pro Program from Loudoun United to the D.C. United First Team. Sami has worked hard since preseason to achieve this and his performances at Loudoun United and while on loan with D.C. United for the last two games have earned him this permanent transfer into MLS. We wish him luck.

Wayne Rooney Returns

It’s official, the major news of the week and possibly of the season, Wayne Rooney has returned to D.C. United to become Head Coach. He won’t be able to be on the sidelines until he has got his work visa and his coaching staff will be announced soon.

Rooney previously managed Derby County in the EFL Championship and almost completed the impossible by saving a team from relegation after suffering a minus 21 point deduction. Unfortunately he ran out of time and they were relegated to League One. But this should not be seen as a failure, he took on financial issues, guided them through the turmoil of administration and did an amazing job. It surely is exciting times ahead for the Black & Red.

Updates will be sent as soon as we hear more about Rooney and his staff.
