COBHAM, SURREY, ENGLAND, UK (JANUARY 10, 2014) (REUTERS) - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho told reporters on Friday (January 10) that he didn't want to talk about a possible move for Manchester United's Wayne Rooney.

The striker has once again been linked with a switch to Chelsea after speculation he would quit Old Trafford for London last summer.

Mourinho is known to be a fan of the 28-year-old, who is nearing the end of his contract with United and may be keen to find a club offering Champions League football should David Moyes' team finish outside the top four in the Premier League.

"I don't want to speak about it," said Mourinho. "We play Man Utd in a few days. I don't think it is nice to speak about a Man Utd player.

"You have to ask him, you have to ask the player and Man Utd, because Man Utd has a contract with a player. So I think you have to speak with David (Moyes) and the player."

Chelsea take on United next weekend, but first face a difficult trip to Hull.
