D.C. United’s post-Wayne Rooney makeover continues with the signing of Peruvian star Edison Flores to a Designated Player deal.

Flores joins D.C. from Liga MX’s Morelia on a reported five-year deal, and he arrives for a reported club-record transfer fee of $5 million, adding some needed clout to an attack that lost Rooney, Lucas Rodriguez and Luciano Acosta, the latter of whom went the other way to Mexico to join Atlas.

Flores, 25, was on Peru’s 2018 World Cup squad, and he brings a dynamic element to D.C.’s midfield on the opposite side of USA international Paul Arriola. Flores scored 12 goals (with six assists) in the last two years with Morelia, including three in the most recent Apertura playoff quarterfinal series vs. Leon. He has 13 international goals for Peru, including two en route to the final at last summer’s Copa America and five in qualifying for World Cup 2018.
