Chelsea to up Rooney bid

Chelsea are set to make a new bid for Wayne Rooney in the range of 40 million.

The Telegraph reports that Jose Mourinho is desperate to land the player and will make a vastly improved offer.

Chelsea's opening offer, of 25 million plus the prospect of throwing in Juan Mata or David Luiz, was rejected - although the London club continue to claim they never offered either player in exchange.
