Chelsea confirm bid for Rooney

As Wayne Rooney looks for a route away from Old Trafford, it seems it won't lead him to Stamford Bridge, for now anyway.

Chelsea have confirmed they have made a bid for Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, but denied reports that the offer was £10 million plus Juan Mata or David Luiz.

Rooney: Will Chelsea and United do business?

Rooney's future has been the subject of intense speculation since former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson claimed the club had turned down a second transfer request in three years from the striker.

New Red Devils boss David Moyes has said the England international is not for sale, although his comments regarding whether the player is one of the first names on his team sheet have reportedly left Rooney "angry and confused".

Arsenal have been linked with the former Everton player, but Chelsea's approach, reported by the BBC and Daily Mail among others on Wednesday, is the first firm offer for his services, as Blues manager Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking options.

The alleged inclusion of Mata or Luiz in the proposed deal came as a surprise, particularly as the Spain international scored 12 goals in 35 Premier League appearances last season, while the defender impressed during Brazil's recent Confederations Cup success.

Chelsea have now sought to clarify the terms of their offer, releasing a statement that suggested Manchester United had misled the media.

It read: "Chelsea Football Club can confirm that yesterday it made a written offer to Manchester United for the transfer of Wayne Rooney.

"Although the terms of the offer are confidential, for the avoidance of doubt, and contrary to what is apparently being briefed to the press in Sydney, the proposed purchase price does not include the transfer or loan of any Chelsea players to Manchester United."

Mourinho is a long-term admirer of Rooney, who has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, and the Portuguese this week voiced his belief that England's World Cup hopes could suffer if the forward is not playing regularly during the 2013-14 season.
