Jose Mourinho has made no secret of the fact he’s desperate to land the England striker while Moyes insists Rooney isn’t for sale.
The Telegraph notes : Chelsea on Sunday night had a second bid for Wayne Rooney rejected by Manchester United.
The fee, believed to be in the region of £25 million, was instantly dismissed by United manager David Moyes, who has continually stressed the England forward will stay with the Premier League champions.
United would be foolish to hand Chelsea just the type of player they’re crying out for, not to mention the fact that handing the Blues a massive advantage in the title race before it’s even begun is hardly a good start to Moyes’ Old Trafford.
Much may depend on whether United can secure the services of Cesc Fabregas, but even if they do, allowing Rooney to join one of our title rivals could be a mistake of biblical proportions.
Expect this to rumble on……
