Wayne Rooney may have received criticism from Manchester United fans during the final few years of his career at Old Trafford, but he will widely be regarded as a club legend.
The forward spent 13 years at the North-West outfit, winning an array of trophies, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League crown.
After dropping down the pecking order under manager Jose Mourinho, Rooney left Old Trafford to return to his boyhood club Everton.
Last season, the 32-year-old scored 11 goals and created three assists in 36 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees.
After spending one year at Goodison Park, Rooney has decided to begin a new chapter in his career over in the United States.

Most of the time, whenever footballers take their careers over the pond, it is when they are edging closer to retirement.
Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard enter that bracket, and given that Rooney no longer has the legs and power to thrive in the Premier League, he will enjoy a final flourish in America.
Most United fans had nothing but nice words for their former club captain following the news.
