Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is happy to wait to sign Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The Telegraph says Mourinho has rejected a host of strikers already offered to him as January signings because he is convinced he can land Rooney at the end of the season.

The Blues manager has shown little interest in the options being put to him and would rather hold out for Rooney than sign a stopgap this month.

Manchester United's crisis has only strengthened Mourinho's belief that he can eventually land Rooney for a reasonable fee, with the 28-year-old's contract running down.
