Chelsea failed with a bid to steal Rooney away from Manchester United in the summer .
It was expected that a new contract would be thrashed out, but United boss David Moyes Said that nothing was in the pipeline.
This has alerted Chelsea, according to Lipton, who he claims will press ahead with a move in the summer should United fail to thrash out a new contract.
In his piece, The Mirror Wrote:
Unless United make their move soon, Rooney will be left with a decision to make over whether the club is as committed to him as he has shown himself to be to them this season.
It means Old Trafford chiefs risk Rooney going into the summer with just 12 months left on his contract—the same position as Arsenal were in when Robin Van Persie forced his cut-price move from the Emirates to United in summer 2012.
The Metro has put on a twist on this by suggesting Rooney has rejected the chance to open talks with United over a new deal with makes Chelsea’s chances even stronger .
If Rooney is concerned about his situation, he can console himself with a report which says he is the highest earning English player in the Premier League.
A report by Wealth-X claims he is worth £45 million wich is not difficul for a team like chelsea .
