Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admits that their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is over.
The Blues saw a number of bids knocked back by their English Premier League rivals as David Moyes stated that the England international was not for sale.
Mourinho said at one point that Rooney was his only target for the summer, but after it started becoming clear that United were not going to let the striker move to London, the Portuguese wrapped up deals for Willian and Samuel Eto'o.
Following their narrow defeat to Bayern Munich via a penalty shootout in the UEFA Super Cup on Friday, Mourinho confirmed that they would no longer be looking to sign Rooney.
"No, no. For all parties, finished," he told Sky Sports. "One thing is to tell you through other people that you want, you want, you want, you want, you want, you want very much, but in the end of the day...
"It's the end. We have a good group and Samuel (Eto'o) will give us other kind of qualities in attack - an experienced player in a team that needs some experienced players."
Mourinho also insisted that he was not disappointed by Rooney's decision not to hand in a transfer request.
"No. I feel it's alright," he continued. "Everyone has to show his life, his future, so for me, I respect that a lot."
