Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has admitted that he would love to see Wayne Rooney arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer as the club prepared to make an improved offer for the Manchester United man reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Blues confirmed yesterday that they had made an initial offer for Rooney which was rejected, understood to around £20million, but also made clear that Juan Mata or David Luiz were not offered as part of the deal.

Cech has now become the first Chelsea player to put his support behind the club’s attempt to sign Rooney conceding that he would be an excellent addition to Jose Mourinho’s side. He said: “Wayne Rooney is a great player but at the moment he’s a Man United player. We’ll see what’s going to happen. He’s a great player. Let’s see.

“In terms of players, at this time of year, we want to do well and to earn your place in the team. If you end up with three more players because the clubs wants three more players then your attitude is the same. You do your best to help the team to win things. If you buy players or don’t buy players, personally, I feel the same.

While praising the England international and possible future team-mate, the former Rennes keeper wants to focus on training and preparing for the new campaign.

He added: “I do my best to earn my place in the team. It’s the same for every team. 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.

The 27-year-old former Everton striker has grown increasingly disillusioned with life at Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order behind Dutch star Robin van Persie and he could be set to hand in a transfer request to force a move away from Manchester.
