D.C. United star Dwayne De Rosario has an option year in his contract, and the club is reportedly working on a long-term extension for him.

Dwayne De Rosario may very well win MLS MVP honors even though D.C. United missed the playoffs. That's how good he was after being acquired from the New York Red Bulls in the middle of the season. Now, the star forward is working on a new contract with D.C. United, according to Steven Goff of the Washington Post.

D.C. United says it will soon initiate talks about contract extension for Dwayne De Rosario, who's entering club-held option year 

De Rosario could play out that option next season, but after the performance he had, D.C. United understandably wants to lock him in for the future. De Rosario scored 13 goals since coming over in late June in a trade for Dax McCarty. His goal in the last game against the Portland Timbers temporarily kept D.C. United's playoff hopes alive before they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
