Mourinho refuses to rule out Chelsea move for Rooney

London, Jan 11: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out a move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Chelsea were linked with the England international in the summer, but despite appearing keen to quit Old Trafford, Rooney opted to stay and has enjoyed a good first half of the season on a personal level.

But with Manchester United’s poor start to the campaign and Chelsea’s desire to bolster their strike force, the Blues have again been linked with the 28-year-old.

Mourinho said Chelsea will play Manchester United in a few days, and it’s not nice to speak about a United player.

Chelsea host United later this month, by which time Rooney should have returned to fitness following a groin strain, metro.co.uk reports. (ANI)
