Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to rundown the clock on signing Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. Mourinho insists he will fight until 'the last day' to sign Wayne Rooney.

Chelsea have had two offers rejected by Manchester United, the latest a £25million bid made on Sunday. But Mourinho said: "There is no time limit on it.

"We have identified the player as one we would like to have with us. We have done it in an ethical way and we are going to do that until the last day. We are doing things legally, making the official bid directly to the club.

"There have been no direct relations with the player, no contact - absolutely nothing. So let's see if things change."
