Man Utd Tell Chelsea They Are Willing To Sell Wayne Rooney

Man Utd have told Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho they are ready to sell striker Wayne Rooney to their title rivals but only once they have a replacement lined-up

With the summer transfer window in full swing, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, are Manchester United ready to sell Wayne Rooney?


Manchester United have told Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho they are ready to sell striker Wayne Rooney to their title rivals but only once they have a replacement lined-up, according to the Mirror.

Rooney’s future at Old Trafford has come under the spotlight after former boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that the striker had asked to leave the club towards the end of last season. Chelsea have not hidden their desire to take the 27-year-old to Stamford Bridge this summer and have already seen a £22m offer rejected by the champions last month.

David Moyes has been insistent all summer that Rooney would not be sold, however that stance appears to have softened with the Mirror claiming that United have now informed the Blues that they are prepared to do business, but only once they have secured a replacement.

Mourinho hinted that a third bid would be submitted for the striker after this Monday’s clash between the two clubs and the newspaper suggests it will be around the £30m mark. Whether that would be enough for United to sell remains to be seen though.

Moyes has been frustrated in his attempts to bring in any marquee names so far this summer and the Mirror claim he will only sanction the sale of the former Everton man once he has found an attacking midfielder to play in the hole behind van Persie – the position he had earmarked for Rooney – as he’s concerned about a backlash from the fans if they sold the forward before a replacement was brought in.

    Rooney to chelsea fc is good idea, he will help alot. But as for Man. U fans they have no option than to acept faith that the player is no longer intrested in them, so they can’t force him to stay.

    mikel is d master in midfield y marta is our rider.rooney have so many qualities in him and it will be nise if he can play along side with his national team mate (frank) in stamford fear is,d special one able n’t dream of using neither mikel or matter for swap deal.they are important in chelsea line up. My advise to jose is to play mikel on monday night against man I.the signing of william will be a great deal.up blues up Jose.

    Pls almighty chelsea try and bid rooney higher at least £50m-£55m I believe man united will sell him with dat amount which I also know dat we have dat kind of money and just forget about buying other player we are ok with rooney. Pls let mikel obi leave staford bridge to any club dat bid for him. I love chelsea with passion long life and prosperity.

    Pls…. Chelsea should make any posibility way to sign Rooney & Willian! am sure they’ll b perfectly fit in d squad nd mourinho should stop d combination of Lampard wit Ramirez; i think Lampard should step down in dat squad nd give way 2 Mikel or V.Ginkel..!

    I think the coming of Roo and Willy is a good one bt Mata remains a thorn in the flesh of every defense and mikel’s good
