MANCHESTER (AFP) – Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho suggested his club’s pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney may be at an end following the 0-0 draw between the teams on Monday.
Mourinho has had two bids for the 27-year-old rejected by United and after Rooney produced a committed display at Old Trafford, the Chelsea coach admitted he may miss out on signing the England star.
“This is a special club with special fans and I think probably now he thinks he wants to stay,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“If that is his decision, we will respect that and say it is over. If now, he does not want to leave, we are out of the thing but we need to know what is happening.”
