Wayne Rooney could be on the way to Stamford Bridge should Manchester United decide to sell him.
Arsenal are set to battle it out with London rivals Chelsea in the race to sign Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney this summer should David Moyes decide to sell the player.
With Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis already stating that Wenger will have the financial backing to make a serious offer for the 27-year old, Jose Mourinho too will have the support of Roman Abramovich to make a strong bid for Rooney, as reported in the The Independent.
The key battleground between the bids will be the wages that they will offer the England international, as it is unlikely that he will look to take a cut from his current £200k a week packet with Manchester United.
Rooney handed in a transfer request at the end of the season, and subsequently missed the last two games of the year through that, and his unhappiness with the Premier League champions has led to speculation of a departure, with Arsenal the favourites to land him.
Playing in the shadow of Robin van Persie last season, Rooney still managed 12 goals in 26 league appearances, and would be a huge boost to a faltering front line at either Arsenal or Chelsea next season.
