After all the goings on in Manchester last week and with reports and rumours galore that Chelsea were interested in Wayne Rooney, it has come to light that Roman Abramovich would only had ever been interested in any sort of deal ONLY if the player had run down his 18 months of his contract and became a free agent.

The Mirror has run the article and a quote from the article states:
Chelsea’s billionaire owner would only entertain entering the bidding for the 25-year-old England marksman if he ran down the remaining 18 months of his contract to become a free agent.

Chelsea have ­tightened the purse strings at Stamford Bridge ruling out signings over £20million pound or sanctioning the payment of wages beyond £80,000 a week for top end players.

The days of players ­emulating the earning power of Frank Lampard and John Terry, who are paid in excess of £150,000 a week, have come to an end for the ­champions. A senior Chelsea source who is close to Abramovich said: “There is no disputing that an in-form Rooney is one of the best players in world football. But as many predicted he has remained at Manchester United for the foreseeable future so it’s not an issue we have to address.

However, contrary to widespread claims there was absolutely no chance of Mr Abramovich sanctioning a move for the player at this stage even if he had made good on his threat to leave United.

Unless the player had ­become a free agent the money required to sanction such a move would have ­undermined everything Chelsea are currently trying to achieve.”
So I like alot of other people should have known better really as it was only a short time ago that we heard that Roman had adopted a new mentality at the club regarding the clubs finances and player wages.

  1. why did we bid over 20milion on neymar then?

  2. Reported 20 Million but also dont forget the players wages wouldn't have been anywhere near 80,000 per week.
