Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he still wants to sign one more striker for the club this summer with his attentions still mainly focused on Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.
The Blues have been admirers of Rooney all summer after the Englishman revealed that he wanted to leave Old Trafford, but David Moyes and United have made it clear that they are not willing to sell one of their star-assets.
However, this hasn’t put off The Special One, who saw his side ease to a 2-0 victory against Hull City yesterday, and despite having the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres already at The Bridge, Mourinho is still keen on signing another striker.
“We will try till the last day to add a new player to the squad, a striker, but in this moment every striker has a club, every striker belongs to somebody and I don’t think it’s ethical that I name players that belong to other clubs,” Mourinho said following Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Hull City on Sunday.
“We don’t try, like many clubs do, to go around and try to influence players to behave in a certain way.
“If we have to make a bid, we make it in an official way, we don’t speak to players, we speak to clubs.”
