Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney is reportedly eyeing a coaching return to the club after the end of his football career.
According to The Sun, Rooney is weighing up his next option when his contract at Major League Soccer (MLS) side D.C. United comes to an end.
The 33-year-old has one year left on his current deal with the MLS outfit.
Rooney has set his sights on a coaching role under the current Manchester United management of former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The ex-England international skipper is still going strong at D.C. United but he could retire from football to concentrate on coaching when his contract is up in 2020.

Former Manchester United players Nicky Butt and Michael Carrick already have respective coaching jobs at Old Trafford and Wayne Rooney could follow in their footsteps.
Wayne Rooney was a wonderful servant for Manchester United whom he had a spectacular career for spanning over a decade.
He became a Manchester United player shortly after the 2004 European Championship in Portugal as he sealed a big-money move from boyhood club Everton to the Theatre of Dreams.
He was a Manchester United player for years before returning to Everton sensationally some three years ago.
