United dismiss Chelsea bid for Rooney

Chelsea today launched a player-plus-cash bid for Wayne Rooney but it was immediately turned down by Manchester United.

The unsettled striker is on the brink of leaving United after reacting badly to comments made by David Moyes over his role at the club. Rooney’s nose was put out of joint last year when Robin van Persie arrived from Arsenal.

The player said to be involved in the bid is believed to have been Juan Mata, however there are a few whispers of David Luiz doing the rounds. Although, the fee is our area of concern at just £10million. After all Everton have always had a 25% sell on fee for the player.

Mata is the biggest surprise. He’s been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid already the summer, while Luiz was also tipped to be on the Nou Camp club’s radar if they lost out on PSG’s Thiago Silva.

Rooney moving to Chelsea is the last thing United want. Moyes has said over and over again that the England international would not be sold, therefore, remain a Manchester United player. But he’s not going to say the complete opposite, is he? “Yeah, go on, throw a few bids in for Rooney. He’s nothing but trouble so I want him out. Fergie did too.” Nah, not happening.

  1. Hilarious! Both Mata and Luiz are worth twice as much as Rooney. I’m sure Moyes would have jumped at the chance if it were true.

  2. luiz and mata are clearly not worth twice as much Roo you silly boy, learn about football before you come on here

  3. It’s all about the principle now – Moyes’ already said Rooney won’t be leaving Manchester United, so we can hope he remains true to his word regardless if Moyes sits Rooney on the bench. Rooney’s surely worth a lot of money, but dealing with Mourinho may turn people against the Scot. Even though Mata’s a brilliant player – if it were an absolute MUST to deal Rooney off to the Blues, I’d personally take David Luiz in a heartbeat.
