Chelsea Want Wayne Rooney on Their Side

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, wants to hire Man Utd superstar striker, Wayne Rooney and hopes to bring him on board during the summer transfer window that closes in August 31st.

The Blues may hold off on a second bid for Rooney until after he has played in Rio Ferdinand’s upcoming testimonial clash, in the belief that a hostile Old Trafford reception to Rooney make him want to leave United.

Want-away Rooney, 27, may be extremely unpopular with his fans at Old Trafford for wanting to transfer. At the end of last season, former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said Rooney had submitted a transfer request to him. At the club’s final home game of the season, Rooney was booed by sections of the Old Trafford crowd.

Chelsea reportedly offered around £20 million for Roo, but the bid was turned down by new Man United manager, David Moyes.

Moyes says Rooney is absolutely not for sale. But new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists that Rooney is his prime summer transfer target, wand reportedly Chelsea could bid up to £30 million.
