Rooney Saga Could Affect Man United – Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hinted David Moyes of possible risks that could disrupt Manchester United’s season if he delays Wayne Rooney’s exit.
The Blues had an opening offer for the striker immediately rejected last Tuesday and are expected to return with an improved bid.
Mourinho suggested a long transfer saga could affect the “balance” of a team very close to the start of the season, or even after the new campaign has begun.
“It depends on the philosophy of each one,” Mourinho told reporters at a press conference in Jakarta. “The sooner you have the players the better. You know the squad you have, you know what you have to work with, you have time for that.
“But, yes, he (Moyes) is right. The market is open until September 2 and many clubs are waiting to the last moment to make their decisions, and those decisions affect a number of other clubs. The one who sells has to go and buy, then they have to buy to replace, so no club is safe. Until the last minute, a club can go there and ‘steal’ a player. I don’t mean steal a player, but steal the balance that a manager has when he’s working with a team.”
