Wayne Rooney’s son Kai Rooney has decided to follow his father’s footsteps by signong for Manchester United.

The 11-year old is the first son among three children, all boys, Klay, 7, Kit, 4 and Cass, 2.

The proud father who is the Red Devils’ record scorer shared a picture of his son putting pen to paper alongside wife Coleen.

Rooney, who is currently interim manager at Derby County having joined the Rams as a player-coach during last season, wrote himself into Old Trafford folklore in a 13-year spell at United.

He scored 253 goals in 559 games – the most of any player ever to don the famous red shirt.

Rooney also won five Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup, one Europa League and one Champions League crown.

Like his son, Rooney started his football career from boyhood and joined United from Everton in 2004. He left to return to his boyhood club at Goodison Park in 2017 having firmly established himself as a Red Devils great.

He spent a solitary season back on Mereyside before two years with DC United in the MLS.

Rooney is now hoping to land the Derby job on a full-time basis after the Rams sacked Phillip Cocu as he bids to launch a managerial career
