Chelsea are ready to sell to fund their stunning swoop for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The Daily Express says Spanish sources have it that the Blues are ready to sacrifice Fernando Torres or Demba Ba to get Rooney.

It is thought that Ba has attracted interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

Rooney, 27, has two years left to run on his contract at Old Trafford, but speculation about his future has been mounting.

Chelsea and Arsenal have been after him.
