Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is his side's only transfer target this summer.
The Blues have seen one bid rejected for the England international but are expected to return with an improved offer after making their interest public.
Chelsea, who insists the rejected bid was a straightforward cash offer rather than the player-plus-cash deals that had been suggested, have been linked with a host of strikers during the current transfer window.
However, when asked by reporters during Chelsea's pre-season tour of Bangkok about his side's interest in the want-away striker, Mourinho confirmed that Rooney was the club's only current target.
When asked "Is it Rooney or bust?" the Portuguese coach simply replied "Yes", and it seems certain that the London club will return with an improved bid to try and tempt United to sell.
