Chelsea are ready to go higher for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The London Evening Standard says Chelsea will make another attempt to sign Rooney and are weighing up a bid of around £40million for the England international.
Rooney remains the club's main target before the transfer window closes on September 2 and they have already had a £27m offer rejected this month.
United do not want to sell the 27-year-old forward to a Premier League rival. But the former Everton star is still angling for a move away from Old Trafford this summer and is believed to have made Chelsea his first- choice destination.
