Wayne Rooney’s son Kai, 11, signs with Man United’s youth academy

Manchester United have signed Kai Rooney, the 11-year-old son of Old Trafford legend Wayne, to the club’s youth academy.

Rooney senior, the interim manager at EFL Championship side Derby County, left Old Trafford in 2017 after a 13-year career at United that saw him earn every major club honor and eclipse Sir Bobby Charlton as the team’s all-time record scorer, with 253 goals in 559 appearances.

The former United and England captain exposed the news about his eldest son on social media on Thursday.

Rooney posted a picture on social media of Kai signing his contract at United, with the message: “Proud day. Kai signing for Manchester United. Keep up the hard work son.”

“Special night….. congratulations Kai,” Rooney’s wife, Coleen, wrote on Instagram. “I love you and I am so proud of you. Keep trying your best.”

Kai had been linked with Manchester City’s academy as a 10-year-old, but the youngster has now committed himself to United where he has a chance to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Kai has now taken the first steps on the road to follow in his father’s illustrious footsteps, putting pen to paper on a youth-team contract.

Kai is Wayne and Coleen’s firstborn son, with the couple sharing three more boys: Klay (7), Kit (4) and Cass (2). (ANI)

If he even shows a fraction of the talent his dad did during his tenure with United, the Rooney name will continue to be one of the most famous surnames in English footballing history. Rooney senior became the most expensive teenager in football history when he signed for United in a £27 million transfer from boyhood club Everton in August 2004.

After returning to Everton in 2017, Rooney then had a spell in MLS with D.C. United before signing for Derby 12 months ago.
