Jose Mourinho is prepared to offer Rooney a five-year deal and match his £240,000-a-week wages as he seeks to land a world-class striker, according to The Daily Mail.
Stamford Bridge is said to be the preferred destination for the want-away Manchester United star, despite David Moyes reiterating that he will not be allowed to leave the club.
The 27-year-old forward has endured a number of turbulent periods throughout his Old Trafford career, and Mourinho is hopeful the latest feud will pave the way for a move that was thought impossible a few seasons ago.
In direct contrast to his position at United, the former Everton starlet would saunter into the starting XI under the Special One.
The abundance of creative talent in Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Kevin de Bruyne will surely tempt the goal-hungry striker into a move to London, and a partnership with any of these names is a mouth-watering prospect.
