MOST COMMENTED

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Hull City on Friday, Blues coach Jose Mourinho addressed several rumors being floated in the press, including, the club’s supposed renewed interest in Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, and the possible exits of Belgium internationals Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

Reports in England this week have claimed that Chelsea is prepared to pounce this summer if Rooney and United fail to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League, but Mourinho, whose team is set to face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge next Sunday, said he would not be drawn into a conversation about a player who is not out of contact at the end of the season. Chelsea had two bids for the United striker rejected last summer.

Regarding the futures of Hazard and De Bruyne, Mourinho said there is “no chance” Hazard would be allowed to leave for Paris Saint-Germain next summer -- despite reports to the contrary claiming that the player has already told his teammates of his decision to leave -- though De Bruyne “has a chance to go” during the January transfer window if he wants, as Chelsea has already received two bids for the young winger, which the club is currently analyzing.
