I was reading this article tonight written by Matt Barlow in the Daily Mail and it has got me thinking to say the least. As soon as we all heard the news about Rooney, everyone has been speculating for two days now about his future. I have posted a couple of times on here already asking you the Chelsea fans opinions and you have stated them.

One thing I have been doing since the news broke about Rooney is wondering on the possibility of joining Chelsea and the reason's for signing. Of course it changes from one moment to the next and I was in a negative frame of mind the other day as I could only see Rooney leaving for the money.

Tonight it is very different and Wayne Rooney's statement he has released himself has added to thought of him coming to Chelsea. Rooney has more or less stated that he is frustrated by United's lack of ambition and the plans for the future squad there and he said:
'For me its all about winning trophies"
So after hearing that my mind has gone into overdrive about if he was to join Chelsea would he be able to settle?. Of course we have the likes of Lampard, Cole and JT at the club so it would be easy for him but it's John Terry and his influence at Chelsea that could be key for any deal put on the table.

The article I am referring to states the following:
If anyone can convince Rooney to snub the riches he can earn by crossing Manchester to join neighbours City and move south to London and join the Barclays Premier League champions, it is Terry.

No-one can sell Chelsea to a mate better than Mr Chelsea and, as a player who has also been pursued by front page headlines about his love life, he can explain how the support structure at Stamford Bridge and the anonymity of the capital city might help him cope.

Abramovich is thought to be busily preparing a package in an effort to sign Rooney in January but will be reluctant to pay a transfer fee of more than £20million or be sucked into a bidding war with City.

It will be interesting to see what part Rooney's own professional ambition plays in his decision. This Chelsea squad is primed for success.

It is a mature team with a respected coach and a winning mentality, backed by a wealthy owner who is keen to develop the squad with youthful purchases.

I have to say the more I think about it, the statements coming from Manchester and the thought of what Rooney is saying about wanting to win titles, I am really warming to the situation and beginning to feel as though I want to be hearing Chelsea state their interest.

This is a long way off with over two months to go until the January transfer window. Sir Alex has stated last night that he wants to look at Rooney's statement and then "put it to bed tomorrow" so stay tuned for further developments on this one in the coming days/weeks.

One thing is for sure, if JT had his way, Rooney will be looking at houses down here in the weeks leading upto January. JT can convince Rooney to resist the temptation of City's money as he did and come and join Carlo's revolution.
