London: Chelsea have made a straight-cash bid for Manchester United's unsettled striker Wayne Rooney, the London club's manager Jose Mourinho said on Wednesday.
The Portuguese coach said they had made an offer for the 27-year-old, who is rumoured to be unhappy in his current situation at United.
The Chelsea coach said that no other players were involved in the bid and quashed speculation that Spain's Juan Mata or Brazil's David Luiz were to be offered as makeweights to lure the England striker to Stamford Bridge.
"Chelsea is interested in this player, made a bid and what we did we did officially," Mourinho said on the club website (www.chelseafc.com).
"Now we have nothing more to say, we want the player, we made the bid and now it is up to Man United.
"We don't want to make public the bid but it is just a certain amount of money and it doesn't involve players or players in the possibility of negotiation. No Juan Mata, no David Luiz."
