Christian Benteke is leaving the Premier League for overseas. As DC United officially announced on Friday evening, the Belgian striker is coming from Crystal Palace on a two-and-a-half-year contract with an option for a further season.
United manager Wayne Rooney is delighted with the transfer: “Christian is a top player who has played at the highest level for a long time. His experience and ability to score goals and help the team will be invaluable. It’s exciting for the team and for me that he can play now. He will make a big difference.”
