Dennis Wise: Rooney and Torres could form fantastic partnership

The former Blues captain believes the striker's arrival could help bring the best out of the Spaniard

With Jose Mourinho stepping up his interest in Wayne Rooney, former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes the Manchester United striker would prove a great signing for the club.

United have rejected a player-plus-cash £10 milion offer for the striker, with Mourinho prepared to part with with either Juan Mata or David Luiz to secure Rooney's signature.

But Wise, who has defended the performances of Fernando Torres, feels that with Rooney playing behind him the Spaniard could finally recapture his best form.
