The former Red Devils footballer is said to be wanting an England return when he retires, wishing he could work at his old club.

Wayne Rooney played for Manchester United from 2004 to 2017. He had 559 apps, scoring 253 goals in all the competitions.

Now, he’s playing for DC United in the Major League Soccer, but his contract ends on 2020, and he is looking for a return to England.

At least according to a source reported by The Sun.

“He also wants to keep his family together and to do what is best for Coleen and their boys,” the source told the English newspaper.

“So a job at United would be perfect. Wayne would like to one day move into coaching.”

“Long-term, he would love to be a part of what Ole is creating,” the source added.

A separate source said last night: “Wayne is doing his coaching badges but is happy at DC United and has an option to stay beyond his current contract. So nothing will happen for a while.”
