Mourinho to make a third bid for Rooney

8:18 am on 19 August 2013

Jose Mourinho has given a clear hint that Chelsea will make a third big-money attempt to buy Manchester United's striker Wayne Rooney before the transfer window closes on Sept. 2.

Chelsea have already had two sizeable offers for the unsettled England international rejected, with media reports putting the most recent bid at 25-30 million pounds.

After Chelsea launched their Premier League season with a 2-0 home win over Hull City this morning, Mourinho said he'll be trying to the last day to buy a striker, but it wouldn't be ethical for him to name the player.
