Chelsea are convinced Wayne Rooney will be wearing their Blue shirt this season. The Mirror says the Blues, however, are resigned to not landing Rooney in time for him to return to Old Trafford in a Blues shirt on August 26.

The Stamford Bridge club will table a second bid of £24million this week and feel they can get their man for around the £30m mark - despite Manchester United's insistence the England man is not for sale.

Jose Mourinho has made Rooney his prime target, with the Chelsea board confident the Scouse ace will not wear a United shirt again.
