Chelsea boss Mourinho cheekily hints at Rooney plans

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."
