Manchester United supremo Ed Woodward has sent Chelsea a ‘terse’ letter warning them to make no new bids for Wayne Rooney.
Chief executive Woodward - backed by the champions' American owners - put his views in writing in a ‘Dear Roman...’ message aimed to block a new bid.
United have turned down two offers for unsettled Rooney from the Roman Abramovich-owned Londoners and are expected to knock back a third.
Woodward hope that the letter - which asks Chelsea not to make any further bids and to stop commenting on Rooney while spelling out United have no intention of selling the England forward - would see an end to the summer-long transfer saga.
However Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho plans to go to £40million for Rooney on Monday when the two sides play at Old Trafford.
He also wants to know if United are prepared to compromise on their public position over the player’s future.
After Chelsea’s win over Aston Villa on Wednesday the Special One said: “We did (bid) before and we wi...
