But he is now set for a swift return to management having touched down in the States.

SunSport recently reported how the Manchester United legend was being lined up by the MLS side after they axed Hernan Losada.

And now the Athletic’s Pablo Iglesias Maurer has shared a photo of Rooney in America, before confirming his new role.

Though he insisted that Rooney will not be officially announced until he has required the necessary visa.

And that won’t be in time for him to be at the helm for United’s upcoming clash against Columbus Crew.

He tweeted: “DC United and Wayne Rooney have agreed on terms, multiple sources tell me tonight.

“Rooney, who starred for the club as a player, will be their newest manager.

“Rooney won’t coach until his Visa is sorted, of course. Unclear to me how long that will take but it won’t be Wednesday.”
