Man Utd won't consider Rooney Chelsea move until final week of market

Manchester United will wait until the final week of the summer transfer window before considering selling Wayne Rooney to Chelsea. The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea are prepared to spend £30million on their pursuit of Rooney.

But Chelsea will be able to match the England striker's £220,000-a-week wages and can offer him a four-year deal.

A second Chelsea bid, expected to be £25m, is planned after an initial inquiry of £20m-plus was turned down. But United are unlikely to do a deal before they have met Chelsea at Old Trafford on August 26.
