Sigurdsson who is currently a free agent was linked with a move to Galatasaray but the deal failed to materialize despite a £1.75 million agreement per year.
Last week, Sigurdsson was spotted in a rare picture with his wife on his Instagram page. They had both disable their account but Sigurdsson wife Alexandra Ivarsdottir who won the 2018 Miss Iceland posted a picture after reactivating her Instagram account.
The photo was captioned ‘La familia’ followed by a white heart and a globe emoji.
Wayne Rooney spent two seasons as a player at DC United in 2018 and 2019 before turning to a manager on July 2022 after resigning as Derby County manager.
DC United are presently ninth in the Eastern Conference of MLS, still within a shot of making the end-of-season play-offs.
Gylfi Sigurdsson Babysitter
Everton star Sigurdsson was detained for sending his babysitter, 15, inappropriate texts, which led to his detention.
Sigurdsson, who was detained by Merseyside police last week for sending sexually explicit texts to a minor, was really texting the family’s 15-year-old babysitter.
The young girl received multiple texts of a sexual nature from the player who was arrested by the police while his home was being searched, and she reportedly told her father on the advice of her friends.
The father then reported the incident to the police, evidently disgusted.
According to the babysitter’s pals, the girl got increasingly terrified as the texts increased in frequency and sexual content.
She had been watching their children for Mr. and Mrs. Sigurdsson for more than six months; Mrs. Sigurdsson was a former Miss Iceland.
