Chelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Metro claims that Jose Mourinho is still keen to land Wayne Rooney.
Chelsea got off to a flyer at home to Hull to celebrate the return of Mourinho and despite all of that Mourinho still wants to add one more player to his line up. Forward Rooney has been on the Blues’ radar all summer and despite already seeing two bids rejected for the player, the Special One is keen to go back for more before the end of the window.
Mourinho spoke after his first home game back and noted that
‘We will try till the last day to add a new player to the squad, a striker, but in this moment every striker has a club, every striker belongs to somebody and I don’t think it’s ethical that I name players that belong to other clubs,’
‘We don’t try, like many clubs do, to go around and try to influence players to behave in a certain way.
‘If we have to make a bid, we make it in an official way, we don’t speak to players, we speak to clubs.’
Clearly the manager wants to bring a forward into the club and despite showing an initial bit of confidence in Fernando Torres, Mourinho wants someone he can truly count on to lead his line.
