Jose Mourinho has once again insisted that Juan Mata and David Luiz will be staying at Chelsea this summer after reports claimed they could be used as bait to land Wayne Rooney, according to Sky Sports News.

The Blues confirmed they had tabled an offer for the unsettled Manchester United striker earlier this week but denied widespread reports that claimed they had offered either Mata or Luiz in a player-plus-cash deal.

The Chelsea squad arrived in Malaysia for the latest leg of their pre-season tour today and Mourinho once again reiterated that neither Mata or Luiz will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer. When quizzed by reporters at a press conference on Thursday afternoon about the possibility of either leaving, Mourinho simply said:

 “No chance. No chance.” Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports

Brazilian defender Luiz was also asked by newspaper O Globo about what he thought of speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford this summer, and the 26-year-old was equally defiant in reaffirming his commitment to Chelsea insisting he has no interest in talking to other clubs about a move.

“I do not like the rumours about me and the possible departure.

“I have a contract with Chelsea until June 2017 and do not want to talk to other clubs.” Luiz is quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

So Chelsea have made it clear they won’t be including either Mata or Luiz in any player exchange deal for Rooney but the club are expected to go back in with an improved offer for the want-away United forward, with Mourinho revealing the 27-year-old is his only summer transfer target.

    If chelsea wills to have any trophy this season, they should forget about selling any of the two. I really don’t see rooney as a chelsea player. Jose should look outside and buy a neutral player who is so hungry for goals. Rooney is a great english player but he will not fit into jose’s chelsea.jose should learn from his real madrid mistakes. Up blues
