Rooney returns vs Swansea

Despite Manchester United insisting that Wayne Rooney is not for sale, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Chelsea will continue to try and sign the striker.

The Guardian reported last week that Manchester United will reject any Chelsea advances for the striker as show of defiance and he was included in David Moyes team that trounced Swansea 4-1 yesterday.

Despite playing his part in 2 of the 4 goals, a picture showing Rooney walking back to the center circle as his team mates celebrated was used as evidence to suggest that the striker was unhappy with United’s decision.

And if true this will represent Mourinho’s best chance of snapping up the striker, although he claims that Chelsea only go through the proper channels to acquire transfer targets.

Speaking after his side’s 2-0 home win over Hull, Mourinho said:

“We will try until the last day to add a new player to the squad, a striker.

“But in this moment every striker has a club, every striker belongs to somebody and I don’t think it’s ethical that I name players that belong to other clubs.

“If we have to make the bid we make it in an official way. We don’t speak to players, we speak to clubs.

“We don’t try like many clubs do go around and try to influence players to behave in a certain way we go direct to the club in the correct manner and we are going to try that until the last day of the transfer window.”
