Several of Chelsea’s squad have been linked with moves away from the club this summer.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that the club don’t need to sell any of their star players this summer amid speculation surrounding Branislav Ivanovic’s future at Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports reports.
Reports have suggested that Chelsea may sell several players this summer to trim their squad, with Ivanovic, David Luiz, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata reportedly in the firing line.
Ivanovic has been linked with an £8 million move to Paris St Germain in recent days but Mourinho claims that he has no intention of selling any of his senior players as he believes they will play an important part in the clubs future.
On the Ivanovic rumours, the Portuguese told Sky Sports News: “They didn’t contact Chelsea. If there was any interest, it was not official”.
Asked if any departures are required, he added: “No. The club is solid. The club is very well organised, the numbers are correct”.
“We as a club want to follow the Financial Fair Play rules, but we are in a very stable situation”.
Mourinho will almost certainly add to his squad this summer and the Blues are reportedly in the market for a striker.
Their number one target was reportedly Edinson Cavani but he has since moved to Paris St Germain meaning the club will have to look elsewhere.
Mourinho may now turn his attentions to Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, who is reportedly unsettled at the Red Devils.
