Chelsea still chasing Rooney

1:30 pm on 12 August 2013

Chelsea has not given up hope of signing unsettled Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney.

The Premier League champions have already turned down a bid for Rooney, who is believed to be unhappy at the club where he has won five league titles and the Champions League in 2008.

United have maintained that the 27-year-old is not for sale, but following a pre-season loss to Real Madrid in Miami, Mourinho said Chelsea will continue its pursuit.

Mourinho also said he had no interest in selling Brazilian defender David Luiz to Barcelona and was happy to be patient over Rooney, with Chelsea already boasting a strikeforce of Fernando Torres, Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba.
