It has been reported that Real Sociedad coach David Moyes admits Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney came close to joining Chelsea.
The England striker was linked with a move to Stamford Bridge following Moyes’ arrival at Old Trafford in the summer of 2013.
“Chelsea were close to taking him,” Moyes told the Sunday Times.
“Jose [Mourinho] was interested but we wouldn’t do any business. I had to fight to make sure he stayed – and was at the heart, again, of what Manchester United were going to be moving forward.”
