Jose Mourinho is determined to take Wayne Rooney to Stamford Bridge and won’t be put off by United’s reluctance if the latest reports are to be believed. The problem for the Special Godfather is that regardless of how much money he offers, it may not be enough as David Moyes knows handing just the type of player Chelsea need, over to them could spell disaster. 

The Mail notes: Chelsea are preparing an ‘imminent’ second bid of around £40 million for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney — and the England striker will leap at the chance to become Jose Mourinho’s No 1 striker at Stamford Bridge.

Rooney may well want out and Mourinho may well want him in, but what would selling our 4th all time top scorer to Chelsea do to our title ambitions? The chances are it would seriously harm our prospects of retaining the Premier League, while greatly enhancing Chelsea’s despite the financial boost it would hand us. £40 million could come in very useful to Moyes but when you look at the players available it may not be able to bring in a replacement quite at Rooney’s level, something the United boss must surely be aware of.

If United were to invest the £40 million into a Cristiano Ronaldo then everybody would be happy- well at least all Reds would- but let’s face facts, that romantic notion, is just that – a romantic notion, hardly likely to happen.

Mourinho can bid £40 million but if Moyes has any sense, he’d rather let Rooney rot on the bench than hand the key to the title to Chelsea.

    Moyes should tell Moron-hoe that it will be 70 million pounds plus Mata and David Luiz for Rooney. Since Bale is going for 105 million pounds and Suarez’s price keeps increasing on a daily basis like gas/petrol prices, nothing less than that would be acceptable. If Chelsea cant agree, they can always go F themselves which they are experts at.

    U re a fool. Rooney will join chelsea. How will u allow a player like ronney rot on d bench

  5. itoro ibanga says:

    Moyes if at all he wants to offload rooney for 40m pounds, he should reinvest that sum by luring back CR7 & either of Cesc or Marchisio. they will be a very good value 4 money at OLD TRAFORD… Rooney is good but we have finishers in CHICHARITO & LINGARD. The former got more goals than Rooney in d last campaign despite d fact dt he’s c been coming in as a sub..

    Makes me smile when you get shite like this written by a united fan who last year was calling for Arsenal to release RVP. There was none of this written apparently why would you want to keep a player who doesn’t want to be there.

    Amazing when its there turn they’re shingling and whining

      But the difference between us and arsenal where our ambitions we weren’t title rivals so it wouldn’t really made a difference if we took their best player because us winning the league didn’t stop them getting champions league football. But however this Chelsea scenario is different because we are title rivals and if we give you (assuming your a Chelsea fan) arguably our best player who solve 99% of your problems and win you the league.
