The Blues comfortably won the Premier League this season, being confirmed as champions with three games still to go in the campaign. As such the 53-year-old is keen to keep the bulk of his squad.
They also won the Capital One Cup, but failed in both the FA Cup and Champions League. While their loss to Bradford City in the former could be seen as a shock result, their defeat to PSG in the quarter finals of the latter could be seen as more indicative of the state of the side.
It is likely with this in mind that Mourinho is keen to strengthen his team further. One area that could do with bolstering is the right wing, where Juan Cuadrado has failed to make an impact since arriving last January. Were the Stamford Bridge outfit to add a threat that was even close to Eden Hazard’s on the left, they would be a formidable side.
Mourinho said: “Two or three are always coming to the club, that’s normal. The players I am looking for are my players, the players I want to keep. Last season I had players I wanted to sell.
“The most important thing in the market is not to lose players. How can I find a better striker than Diego Costa? A better midfielder than Nemanja Matic? A better right-back than Branislav Ivanovic?”
