Chelsea count on £40M Rooney bid convincing Man Utd to sell

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to make a new bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney this week. The People says Mourinho will make a final bid of £40million for Rooney within the next 48 hours.

Mourinho wants Rooney as his new No.9 and owner Roman Abramovich will back him up with a stunning four-year contract worth an incredible £300,000 a week.

The Chelsea boss is hoping the sheer size of the Rooney bid will make the Old Trafford giants and the club's American owners the Glazer family see it makes financial sense to do the deal.

Rooney's value will drop after the transfer window closes as he has just two years left on his current United contract.
