Chelsea see second Rooney bid rejected

Chelsea have upped their offer for Wayne Rooney to £25m plus add-ons but Manchester United have again rejected the bid and insisted that the striker is not for sale.

It is the second offer that the Londoners have made for the England striker having made an initial bid of £20m for the 27-year-old and although they seem to have got nowhere with either, the bookmakers believe that they will get their man before the transfer window closes.

The best price on Rooney being a Chelsea player come September is the 10/11 that Bet365 are offering and other bookies believe he is much more certain to go to Stamford Bridge than that.

There is the prospect of Rooney now handing in a written transfer request and if that does indeed happen then it is unlikely that he will stay at Old Trafford for the start of the season.

Sky Bet see his exit as all but a foregone conclusion with their current odds on the England forward not staying at the Premier League champions being 8/13.

What brings his move away from the club into doubt is that only Chelsea have seriously stated their interest in his services. The next in line to sign Rooney after Jose Mourinho’s side are Arsenal but they are some way behind at 8/1, followed by Paris Saint-Germain who are out at 16/1 again with Bet365.

The saga is set to continue for some time to come and there will be some lively debate between Rooney and United boss David Moyes about where his future will lie.
