Report: D.C. Veron Deal Imminent

According to Goal.com, Juan Sebastian Veron is on the cusp of sealing a move to D.C. United. Coach Tom Soehn and Technical Director Dave Kasper are reportedly in Buenos Aires right now, finalizing the deal. The Argentine playmaker has been linked with a move to the MLS club for months now, although Veron initially rebuffed United's advances, preferring instead to stay with Estudiantes de la Plata, the club he currently plays for in Argentina.

The well-traveled Veron has played for many of the world's top clubs, including Serie A's Lazio, Parma and Inter Milan, as well as Manchester United and Chelsea of the English Premier League. The 32-year-old Veron has won the Italian league twice, with Lazio in 2000 and Inter in 2006, and the EPL once, with Man United in 2003. He also won the Argentine Apertura tournament with Estudiantes in 2006.

Veron's departure would be a double blow for Estudiantes, Goal.com says, as Coach Diego Simeone indicated that he too would head elsewhere -- probably River Plate -- if Veron decided to leave. Simeone, himself a former Lazio and Inter Milan player, in the past has expressed his displeasure with the club's apparent lack of ambition and financial support.
