Mourinho is not happy with the goal-scoring return of his current trio of striking options with Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba all struggling for form and any interest in Rooney may well lead many to believe that loaned out forward Romelu Lukaku is likely to secure a permanent exit from the West London club.
