David Luiz welcomes Wayne Rooney to Chelsea rumours

Chelsea defender David Luiz would love the opportunity to play alongside unsettled Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney next season, reports Sky Sports.

As speculation continues to mount that Rooney wants to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, Luiz said that the England international would be welcome with open arms at Stamford Bridge.

"Everyone knows about his quality, so if he wants to come to Chelsea why not? I'd be happy with it," he told The Sun.

Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed after Sunday's 2-1 win over Swansea that Rooney had asked for a transfer for the second time in his Manchester United career, having grown frustrated at being substituted in recent games.

The 27-year-old's apparent unrest has attracted attention from a number of top European clubs, with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain both said to be interested in Rooney's signature.

However, Chelsea have emerged as favourites to keep the striker in the Premier League, with Roman Abramovich one of only a few top-flight chairmen who has the necessary funds to match Rooney's wage demands.
