Chelsea still keen on transfer pursuit

Change of environment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney could well still leave Old Trafford this summer after a hamstring injury ruled him out of the clubs pre-season Asia tour, according to the Daily Star.

The £30million rated forward is wanted by Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona could be out of the opening Premier League weekend due to his injury picked up within 24 hours of being on tour.

Rooney handed in a transfer request at the end of last season after being rested or dropped in numerous games under Sir Alex Ferguson but new boss David Moyes ruled out the possibility of the striker leaving.

Plenty of talk surrounding the striker has been that the injury is a camouflage for a transfer this summer and it appears the England man is still adamant that he wants to leave the Premier League champions.

Chelsea are set to test the water with a £20million bid for the former Everton man and the England forward could well push through the transfer as he remains unhappy with the Champions.
