Rooney - The Chelsea Truth

Rooney - The Chelsea Truth

With the internet alive with the inference that Chelsea had made a bid for Wayne Rooney and that United had also been offered either David Luiz or Juan Mata in part exchange, the club have issued a statement.

The statement reads;

'Chelsea Football Club can confirm that yesterday it made a written offer to Manchester United for the transfer of Wayne Rooney."

'Although the terms of the offer are confidential, for avoidance of doubt and contrary to what is apparently being briefed to the press in Sydney, the proposed purchase price does not include the transfer or loan of any players from Chelsea to Manchester United.'

So now we know!

Also, the BBC are now reporting that United`s CEO, Ed Woodward, has left their Australian tour to conduct some urgent transfer business!

We certainly know now. Kudos to the board for coming out to claring the issue (for the 1st time if I'm not wrong). This goes to show how Mata and if not Luiz are important to the 'project'.

Nothing surprising, is there? Jose was always going to bid for Rooney. “We” knew all along. lol... How nice he opened his bid with £10m!!! Golden! Epic!! ...I'm lovin' it ;) *music*wine*pizza*

why oh why in the hell do we want Wayne Rooney!!!! Why FFS??!! Must we always be that club that takes an unhappy player out of the other club's hands and end up paying an extreme amount of cash in tranfer and wages. I'm so sick of chelsea ALWAYS going for the big names!!! and why premier league players from big clubs??? Will we EVER produce our OWN dam superstars FFS this big name big spending has to end now!!

I don't think ManUre will sell to a rival, especially having first hand experience what happened when they bought RVP from the Ar$es...
17/07/2013 16:25:00
^^^stranger things have happened so...
17/07/2013 16:25:00

Jose just confirmed they have not bid for anyone else. It's either Rooney or no one. .De Laurentiis came out and said Chelsea never bid for Cavani!!!! Unbelievable considering we have dragged through the Cavani saga and we haven't bid at all!! smh!! How many articles were spent on him here at VC for cavani!! loll!
17/07/2013 16:40:00
Hulk going to Monaco for 60 mill euros!!! Lord have mercy!! PSG buying 18 yr old Marquinhos from Roma for 35 mill euros after buying Lucas Digne for 16 mill euros earlier plus Cavani for 70 mill euros. These two are out of control now!! lolll
17/07/2013 16:42:00
CONFIRMED-- Jose says Rooney is Chelsea's ONLY transfer target. If we don't get him, then no one else comes!!........... So De Rossi coming, Mikel going, other strikers like Suarez etc, all now mostly not happening!
17/07/2013 16:47:00
This is a game of causing unrest guys and am loving it! Jose started it all and it got to ManU when moyes claim rooney was second choice to RVP and jose replied to the situation by saying rooney as a second choice would affect the England National team. That really unrest in the ManU camp and they are trying to get back with this and our board was smart enough to come out and deny it (meaning they are the one an unhappy player and not us)
17/07/2013 16:50:00
Jose"s comment after the match makes me think chelsea might actually get Rooney....I hope we dont do something stupid and we actually know what we are doing...Lawd have mercy!
17/07/2013 16:54:00
^^ IN a way you could say our transfer business is done!!
17/07/2013 16:55:00
I will never forgive Arsenal for selling RVP to manure if they (manure) refuse to sell Rooney to us and for the BBC's report of cash plus player deal which has been refutted by chelsea, which other player do you think the media will mention to test chelsea fans nerves if not Mata, luiz, Hazard and Oscar? Let the war continue............

I know the media attach our names to every transfer but to know we were never in the running for cavani, am awestrucked. Rooney our only target? Am just waiting to see just how we will get him without paying top money to ManU. Does rooney has a release clause in his contract anybody?
17/07/2013 16:57:00
Yes mostly crazy @syed, the French shenanigans, though u must agree, 'tis a rather very subtle, polite and sublime way to give “their” platininininininii the necessary fAT middle-finger with his FFP gospel. Lovely summer!! lol zz..

Hulk can go ahead and sign for 100mil euros to join the singha all star team for all I care. So far its not us, am all smiles
17/07/2013 17:02:00
hmmm....Shrekky in a blue shirt?
17/07/2013 17:05:00
Lolz @HGH platinis face already looks funny but I would still pay any amount to see just how his face looks with the fat middle finger showned him by the french shenanigans
17/07/2013 17:07:00
i am ashtonished to see that some of us here at VC have there "GARY NEVILLE GLASSES" on while throwing a judgement on david luiz. everyone starts behaving like being controlled by 14 year old playstation boy. actually us behaving like this makes only one person look like a winner and thats gary neville. he is the man who played with injury in champions league final. and some of us might be ok if we give luiz to man u in exchange for rooney.
