Veron Set For MLS Switch With DC United

Reports from Argentina suggest that Estudiantes midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron could be on his way to DC United when his contract expires at the end of December.

DC United are thought to be keen to capitalize on the 'Beckham effect' that is sweeping across America and wish to bring in a star name of their own in time for the 2008 season.

Veron, 32, has enjoyed his spell back at Estudiantes and was instrumental in their 2006 Apertura victory. However, the promise of one last big paycheck, along with the opportunity to be part of an ever improving league, may be enough for Veron to consider the move to the United States.

If Veron does leave, then it seems that his coach Diego Simeone may follow suit, preferring to join River Plate than continue at Estudiantes without his main talisman.
