WAYNE ROONEY set tongues wagging when he turned up at Manchester Unitedâs training HQ in a club tracksuit.
But the real reason for the Old Trafford legendâs flying visit was to watch his lads Kai, 12, and Klay, 9, training with Unitedâs academy.
DC United boss Roo was back in the UK following the end of his clubâs MLS season.
The former England international’s American outfit finished bottom of the Eastern Conference with just seven wins from 34 matches – although Rooney did not take over until July.
But he is now enjoying the off-season as he watched his boys follow in his footsteps.
Older son Kai recently signed a deal to be a model for sportswear brand Puma.
He netted an impressive 56 times for the under-12s last season where he is team-mates with Cristiano Ronaldoâs sonÂ Cristiano Jr.
Speaking about Kai joining United, dad Rooney said: “He did have other options, other clubs to go to.
“But he decided he wants to sign for Manchester United, so it was his decision and not mine.”
Rooney is Unitedâs all-time top scorer with 253 goals in 559 appearances.

He spent 13 years at the club, arriving in 2004 and returning to Everton in 2017.
Rooney won a plethora of trophies at Old Trafford including five Premier Leagues, one FA Cup, three League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League.
He spent one year back at the Toffees, before finishing his career with stints at DC United and Derby County – hanging up his boots in 2021.
