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.
