As speculation mounts over a potential Mourinho move for Wayne Rooney, we take a look at five bargain strikers for the Portuguese manager to take a look at.
Despite having Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku at his disposal Mourinho almost certainly wants to add another to his arsenal despite telling reporters earlier this month that ‘it is Rooney or bust’ for Chelsea.
Despite a noticeable improvement in form last season, Mourinho is less than convinced Torres is the man to lead the line in the quest for the Premier League title this season and has pledged to try his best to ‘help’ Torres. Less than convincing words.
Similarly Demba Ba was a short term solution for interim manager Rafa Benitez last season and there is no guarantee Mourinho will warm to him. That leaves Romelu Lukaku who had a brilliant time at West Brom last season but lacks the experience to lead the line at Stamford Bridge.
