Reports: Mourinho, Rooney Push for Chelsea Transfer

MOST COMMENTED

Despite having had two bids for Wayne Rooney rejected so far, Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho is adamant that the Manchester United striker is his only remaining target in the European transfer market. Meanwhile, ESPN reports that Rooney has told potential suitors like Arsenal that he has his heart set on teaming up with Mourinho at Chelsea.

Though United insists it would not sell a player to a title rival, the England striker could yet tip the scales in favor of a move if he decides, as has been reported, to hand in a transfer request within the next week. That, the Guardian reports, would be followed by a third bid from Chelsea.

"We are far away so we are not in England to know every detail but we are doing things in the correct way," Mourinho said following Chelsea’s 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup in Florida. "We made the bid and Manchester United have reacted. Let's see what happens. But we can't do more than we are doing now.”

The Portuguese added: "We are doing things legally, making the official bid directly to the club, no interviews or comments or direct relations with the player, no contact, absolutely nothing. We are doing everything in an ethical way, so let's see if things change. There is no time limit. We have our squad of strikers. We have identified the player as one we would like to have with us. We have done it in an ethical way and we are going to do that until the last day. And we will see how it comes."
