Mourinho still keen on Manchester United star

Wayne Rooney to Chelsea for £10m + one of David Luiz or Juan MataThe Daily Mail have a cracker for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that Chelsea are still after Wayne Rooney.

Jose Mourinho has made it perfectly clear that he only wants one more player to add to his squad this summer and has made it even clearer that it is forward Wayne Rooney he wants. Manchester United have tried to make it clear that they are not keen on letting the player go to another English club and in fact are not keen on selling the player full stop. The Angry and Confused one however is set on a link up with The Special One and will attempt to force through a move as the summer draws ever closer to a close.

Rooney has also been linked with a move to Arsenal and is believed that he will consider that should the move to Stamford Bridge fall through. Now it seems that Mourinho wants Rooney just as much as the forward wants him and has noted that

‘At this moment we have made what you know; that bid which was public and official and after that nothing else,’

‘But we are calm as we told you that we are calm because we are happy with what we have.’

Mourinho also spoke about the future of Fernando Torres who, should Rooney arrive, would be even further down the pecking order. Mourinho claimed ‘I think Fernando should be happy because we have competition in the team and I think that is good for everybody in every position.’

Will Mourinho land Rooney? Rate this rumour below.
