Chelsea planning sensational swoop for Manchester United legend in January

Chelsea are looking to make a move for Wayne Rooney during the January transfer window, according to reports from the Daily Express

It has been clear to see that Chelsea are currently undergoing a terrible campaign and with seven defeats from 12 matches, the Blues seem to already have relinquished their Premier League crown.

There is still a lot of time for Chelsea to turn things around and maybe hope for a Champions League finish but in order to bring about such upturn in fortunes, the Premier League giants will most certainly have to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window.

Signing a new defender seems to be the priority for Chelsea but with the likes of Diego Costa, Oscar and Eden Hazard all underperforming, bringing in an attacking reinforcement should also be on the agenda.

A host of names such as Antonio Candreva, Yannick Bolasie and even Cristiano Ronaldo have all been linked with a move to Chelsea recently but now in shock reports from the Daily Express, it has been claimed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is said to be planning a swoop for Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.

Rooney has been out of sorts this season for United but Mourinho remains a keen admirer of the 30-year old and the Portuguese manager will be launching an ambitious swoop to land the England skipper in January.

Bookies SkyBet also believe that Rooney’s potential move to Chelsea could well come into fruition by offering attractive odds at 7/1 and it will be very interesting to see how the story develops in the coming weeks.
