Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to rundown the clock this transfer window in his bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. Mourinho doesn't to spend more than £30 million for the England ace.

Asked if Chelsea could afford to splash £50m on a forward, Mourinho replied to The Sun: "The striker I want doesn't cost £50m, doesn't cost £40m."

And when quizzed over whether he could do business on September 2, when the transfer window shuts, he added: "That's why it is open."
