D.C. United announced today that the club has acquired forward Chris Rolfe from the Chicago Fire in exchange for allocation money. Rolfe, 31, has made two appearances this season for the Fire, most recently as a stoppage time substitution in Chicago’s 2-2 draw with D.C. United on March 29.
“Chris brings great technical ability as well as National Team and European experience to our club,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper. “He plays with a high soccer IQ and will give us more options in our attack. As a well-liked and respected veteran in our league, we look forward to him joining the team.”
