Former Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has agreed terms to become the manager of Major League Soccer side DC United, multiple media outlets reported.
Rooney, who played for DC United between 2018-19, stepped down as manager of Derby County last month, ending a turbulent 17-month spell during which the English club were marred by financial trouble and relegated to the third tier.
Multiple reports say Rooney will join up with the club once the final details are worked out and he has received a work visa.
DC United are second from bottom in the Eastern Conference with 17 points from 17 matches. They were thrashed 7-0 by Philadelphia Union in their last game.
Rooney scored 253 goals for Manchester United and won five Premier League titles and the Champions League with the club.
He joined Derby in a player-coach capacity in 2020 before being named manager the following year.
