Cech would welcome Rooney

Goalkeeper Petr Cech has endorsed Chelsea's pursuit of "great player" Wayne Rooney and knows nothing can be discounted in football transfer business.

Wayne Rooney is a great player but at the moment he's a Man United player.

We'll see what's going to happen. He's a great player. Let's see.

You always want to have the biggest and strongest squad so you can challenge for titles.

That's why you have a manager and sporting director to take care of that and you have to do the most important part and that's the work on the pitch.

We already have a few more players and a great squad. If the manager doesn't think we have enough he will try to get players in. It is only his decision.
