Her mar­riage H to foot­baller Wayne Rooney en­dured a rocky 2017 af­ter the foot­baller’s boozy night out with party girl Laura Simp­son in Septem­ber saw him slapped with a driv­ing ban and a 12-month com­mu­nity or­der.

But wife Coleen later re­vealed in a lengthy Face­book post that she’d for­given him, and it was last week claimed that the Ever­ton player had signed a deal “in prin­ci­pal” with US based team DC United – mean­ing a po­ten­tial two-year move to Washington.

Now sources say Coleen’s friends be­lieve this could mark a fresh start for the cou­ple.

A source says, “Wayne has been in talks with DC and, af­ter ev­ery­thing they’ve been through, Coleen’s friends feel this could be just the change of scenery they need to start again and put the past be­hind them.”

Last year, it was claimed Coleen had blocked his move to the Chi­nese Su­per League af­ter Wayne lost £500,000 in a Manch­ester casino.

EX­CIT­ING OP­POR­TU­NITY

But sources say the mum-of­four – who has sons Kai, eight, Klay, four, Kit, two, and Cass, three months – feels a move to the States could be pos­i­tive for their fam­ily.

The source adds, “Mov­ing to a new coun­try could open them up to ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, new friends and a dif­fer­ent life­style for the boys. It’s def­i­nitely got her think­ing.”

But in­sid­ers say it’s prov­ing a tricky de­ci­sion, as Coleen is so close to her fam­ily and friends in Cheshire.

The source says, “Coleen has al­ways been sup­port­ive of Wayne’s ca­reer and, while she’s ex­cited by the idea, it’d be so hard to be away from fam­ily. Of course, she could fly back and forth or maybe di­vide her time. Noth­ing’s been de­cided just yet, so she and Wayne are try­ing to work out the lo­gis­tics.”

Last week, Coleen re­vealed that she and Wayne were set to cel­e­brate their 10-year wed­ding an­niver­sary on hol­i­day with the chil­dren on 12 June. But their plans ap­peared to be thrown into jeop­ardy days later when it was re­ported that Wayne was be­ing lined up as a pun­dit for the World Cup in Rus­sia – which starts just two days later on 14 June.

Now sources say Wayne has in­sisted he’ll make the mile­stone cel­e­bra­tion spe­cial – even if they have to do it ear­lier than planned.

STILL STRONG

The source adds, “Wayne could al­ways fly out to Rus­sia straight af­ter their an­niver­sary, or they could mark it a few days ear­lier so he can pull out all the stops.

“Coleen is re­ally hop­ing to be spoiled by Wayne. Even if they can’t cel­e­brate on the ac­tual date, she still wants to mark the fact that, de­spite all the hur­dles, their mar­riage is go­ing strong ten years in.”
