Everton ‘keeper Tim Howard is a target for MLS outfit Colorado Rapids this summer, according to ESPN.
‘Sources’ have told ESPN that the deal to take the American custodian back across the pond is nearing completion.
Rapids general manager Tim Hinchey is thought to have been on Merseyside to finalise a deal with both Howard and the Toffees themselves.
The report claims the former Manchester United stopper will command a whopping $2m a year salary, making him the highest paid in his position in the MLS.
A fee between $600,000 and $750,000 is understood to have been agreed to prize the 36-year old away from Goodison Park.
It will be the end of an era for both Howard and the Toffees, where he has minded the net for close to a decade.
He initially joined the club on loan in 2006, before making a permanent move in 2007 and has since made over 300 appearances.
