Chelsea captain John Terry says that Wayne Rooney is the best player in the world and added that he would welcome the striker to Stamford Bridge. It looks definite now that Rooney will leave Old Trafford. Chelsea are just one of the clubs who have been linked with making a move for the player. And former England captain Terry believes that Rooney would be a great addition to the Blues' team. "Wayne is the best young player in the world. I am no different to any other player in saying that," said Terry. "You obviously have to respect Manchester United and Wayne, but who knows what's going to happen. "We've got a great squad of players and he would add to that and strengthen the squad. He is the best player in the world for me."
