Chelsea goalkeepers eager to play alongside Man Utd star Wayne Rooney
The transfer saga of Wayne Rooney took a new turn on Wednesday when Chelsea confirmed they had made a bid on the coveted Manchester United forward. Since then Jose Mourinho and Co. have not only praised the English striker, but have expressed desire for him to join the Blues.
The new Old Trafford boss David Moyes claims Wayne Rooney has made amends and exchanged olive branches with Manchester United. However, reports suggest Wayne Rooney is still unhappy with the club and is eagerly searching for a way out of Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing the wantaway striker to Chelsea. The Portuguese manager is an avid fan of Wayne Rooney and placed a bid on him back when he was the manager of Real Madrid.
Mark Schwarzer, who joined Chelsea this summer as a free agent from Fulham, believes the 27-year-old England international will do well at Manchester United.
“I think over the years Chelsea have shown a tremendous amount of ambition and that just continues now by bidding for one of the top players in English football,” Mark Schwarzer told Sky Sports News.
“The club always wants to continue to go forward and that is what is very exciting about being here. He is definitely one of the best strikers in the world without a doubt and he would be an asset to any side.”
Mark Schwarzer is keen on playing alongside Wayne Rooney at Chelsea, but understands that he won’t have the power of decision. Chelsea’s No. 1 choice between the sticks Petr Cech believes the addition of Wayne Rooney will help Chelsea challenge for major silverware next season.
“Wayne Rooney is a great player but at the moment he's a Man United player,” Petr Cech said. “We'll see what's going to happen. He's a great player. Let's see.
“You always want to have the biggest and strongest squad so you can challenge for titles. That's why you have a manager and sporting director to take care of that and you have to do the most important part and that's the work on the pitch.
“We already have a few more players and a great squad. If the manager doesn't think we have enough he will try to get players in. It is only his decision. For players, we concentrate on getting fit and doing our best, to play as much as we can. That's all we can do.
“In football things are changing every day with every squad. As time goes on, every team can make some changes. Anything can happen.”
