Jose Mourinho believes he can clinch the signing of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, according to the Daily Telegraph.
It is claimed that a number of possible deals for strikers have been suggested to the Chelsea boss but he feels he could well land England star Rooney in the summer and does not want a stop-gap in January.
United are confident Rooney will sign a new contract at Old Trafford. The Telegraph says Arsenal are also monitoring the situation.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror says Kevin de Bruyne is set to complete an £18m move from Chelsea to German club Wolfsburg.
Courtois, currently on loan at Atletico Madrid, is quoted as saying: “My agent is currently talking with Chelsea. One of these weeks, I’ll have a chat with Jose Mourinho.
“I will never say I’m a better goalkeeper than Petr Cech. But I’m not a player anymore that you can put on the bench, I think. I will take that in mind when I take a decision.
“I can say what I think, but in the end the boss makes the decision. It is a game of supply and demand. Clubs don’t gain an advantage by taking a decision against the will of a player.”
