He flew to the US on Sunday, after Coleen, 36, had laid bare the tensions in their marriage and how she was so homesick living in America that she often cried herself to sleep.
Rooney, also 36, is keen to take the job to further his management career, but pals of the couple fear it will put yet more strain on their troubled marriage.
A source said: “Wayne has discussed the job with Coleen, but she has categorically said she’s not going.
“That said, she doesn’t want to stand in his way. They have an understanding that they are a team but emotionally she isn’t invested.
“There has been a lot of back and forth but they now agree to disagree.
“The children are settled in school and do not want to go back to America, so they plan to stay in Cheshire with their mum.
“It will be very hard for everyone as a managerial job is much more time consuming than being a player, so nipping back to the UK will be hard.”
Rooney was arrested in December 2018 for being drunk at Dulles airport.
In February 2019 he had a boozy night out with a barmaid while on a training camp in Florida.
He was also pictured outside a Hooters bar, famed for their sexy waitresses in revealing clothes.
His behaviour is understood to have been the trigger for Coleen demanding he return home in 2019.
During the Wagatha Christie libel trial earlier this year, Coleen told how she “cried every night” after the family moved to the US.
