Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has refused to comment on continued speculation that Wayne Rooney could end up at Stamford Bridge.
United are confident the England star will sign a new deal at Old Trafford, but Chelsea are monitoring the situation.
Mourinho insisted: “I don’t want to speak about it. We play Manchester United in a few days and I don’t think it’s nice to speak about a Man United player.”
Pressed about Rooney’s contract negotiations at United, the Blues boss said: “You’ll have to ask the player and Man United, because they have a contract with the player that doesn’t end at the end of the season.”
