Chelsea continues Rooney pursuit

4:46 pm on 17 August 2013

Jose Mourinho says he will not give up pursuing Wayne Rooney until the English Premier League transfer window finally closes.

The Chelsea manager has made it clear he wants to recruit Rooney but has failed twice to persuade Manchester United to part with the England striker.

Mourinho has also been linked to a reunion with Samuel Eto'o who appears destined to leave Russain club Anzhi Makhachkala and has spoken positively about his desire to work with his former Inter Milan coach again.

But Mourinho indicated his priority was elsewhere.

While Mourinho expects to add to his squad, he was adamant David Luiz will not be leaving despite interest from Barcelona.
