Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been the subject of two rejected bids from Chelsea.

Despite being chased by opponents Chelsea, Manchester United boss David Moyes decided to pick striker Wayne Rooney, who put in an outstanding performance last night to earn a point for the home team in an goalless draw.

Manchester United dominated the match for most of the period, but lacked the final pass.

However, Red Devils' striker Wayne Rooney was under the spotlight for his performance as well as his future before Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho handed the England star a final ultimatum to decide his future after the match.

"The person that started the story has to finish the story. For the good of everyone it is time to finish the story," said Mourinho.

"One way or another he has to say 'I want to leave' or 'I want to stay'."

Anzhi star striker Samuel Eto'o, who worked under the Portuguese at Inter Milan, has been lined up as alternative if the move for Rooney falls apart.

Asked how long he was prepared to wait before moving on to other targets, the former Real Madrid boss claimed: "Twenty-four hours, 48 hours.

"If he wants to leave he has to say - or if he has decided now he doesn't want to leave any more then he has to say."

The 27-year-old received rousing support from the Old Trafford crowd last night and Mourinho refused to hesitate to praise the backing the unsettled striker obtained from the Manchester United fans.

"It was fantastic. In other countries it would not be possible. It was very English," he added.
