ABOVE: Wayne Rooney is valued at around £25m
JOSE MOURINHO has admitted he is a big fan of Wayne Rooney - and hinted he wants to try and beat Arsenal to sign him.
It's led to some suggesting he's set to leave the club and, if he does, Chelsea are in pole position to sign him.
Rooney will cost around £25m and Mourinho suggested he would love to see Rooney at Stamford Bridge.
He said: "I cannot speak about players from other teams but you know me.
"I cannot say more than that. He is fast and direct. I like him but he is a Manchester United player."
Arsenal had hoped to bring two of Rooney, Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain to the Emirates.
