English Premiership

Chelsea still keen on Rooney

London - New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is still reluctant to give up on England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Although the “Special one” has a list of big-name strikers in his squad - including Fernando Torres, Victor Moses and Demba Ba - he remains optimistic that the unsettled Rooney, will join the London outfit before the end of the current transfer window.

Mourinho, 50, rejoined the Blues last June from Spanish giants Real Madrid and has already made two bids for the 27-year-old - which were both turned down by new United manager, David Moyes, who confirmed that Rooney is not for sale.

The English Premiership transfer window has always, over the years, left the global football fraternity with plenty to talk about, more especially on deadline day and with Rooney’s situation at Old Trafford, we might be heading for one of the biggest, shock transfers of all time.
