Blues have been linked with numerous strikers in this transfer window. However Jose Mourinho has made Wayne Rooney his prime target and Chelsea are convinced and sure that Manchester United forward will sign for them.
David Moyes has stated more than once that Rooney is not for sale and surely he will not like to strengthen one of United’s main rivals for premier league crown by selling one of his best players. Still, the way England international has been treated lately and his desire to leave Old Trafford will ensure Chelsea they have their man.
Daily Star reports that Chelsea are certain they are going to sign the Red Devil forward this summer despite all odds and obstructions from Manchester United. In fact, for now even the odds are favoring Jose Mourinho to land the striker he admires a lot.
Mourinho has that habit of winding up United; he is adamant not to lose this battle and will do all to lure Rooney to Stamford Bridge.
United may keep on reiterating on the fact that he is going nowhere but keeping an unhappy player in the squad is by no means sensible option. Also when you have to pay him a hefty sum every week, is he going to earn that on the bench. Sooner rather than later, Devil’s stand will break and they will sell Rooney.
On the other hand, Rooney is once again favorite to start upfront for England during next year’s World Cup in Brazil. For that, the country would want the main man to play regularly and at his best for the club, the same will be desired by Wayne Rooney as well.
It has also been reported that United badly want Cesc Fabregas and are ready to pay over the odds to hire the services of former Arsenal star. They may have to look for another forward as well as they seem resigned to lose Rooney to Chelsea football club.
