Reports: Goalkeeper Tim Howard likely to join Colorado Rapids in May

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard will reportedly move to MLS in May. 

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is likely to join the Colorado Rapids of MLS in May, reports NBC Sports’s Joe Prince-Wright.

The report was later confirmed by ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle.

Howard could sign with the Rapids in January and then join the team after the Premier League season in May, reports NBC Sports. Howard is expected to command a salary between $2–3 million, according to ESPN, which would make him the highest paid goalkeeper in MLS. 

The Rapids traded goalkeeper Clint Irwin to Toronto earlier this month.
