Chelsea reportedly refuse to give up on signing Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney by preparing a third bid for the England international.

Chelsea will reportedly try to test Manchester United's resolve once again by lodging a third bid for striker Wayne Rooney.

The Blues have already had two offers rebuffed, one believed to be in excess of £25m.

Despite United insisting that the 27-year-old is not for sale, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who previously stated that Rooney is the club's final transfer target, remains keen on bringing the forward to Stamford Bridge, according to talkSPORT.

Reports this morning have emerged claiming that the England international's teammates at Old Trafford are becoming frustrated with the situation.
