Stamford Bridge manager hopes to avoid having to make signings when transfer window re-opens.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho hopes to avoid having to make any January transfer window signings according to talkSPORT.
With the Blues sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League and with a fairly massive squad it seems fair to assume that Mourinho can manage to cope without having to splash the cash in January.
Mourinho does have injury concerns over top-scorer Diego Costa though he does of course have Loic Remy and Didier Drogba to call upon and has very able alternatives to Andre Schurrle and John Obi Mikel, who are also sidelined.
When questioned on any potential moves in January Mourinho stated;
“We do not think about that (the window), that is a long time to go with November and December. Hopefully we don’t need it and don’t have problems. The window is there for people in trouble, for whatever reason, to cope with a difficult moment. Hopefully we do not need it.”
Mourinho has done fantastic business in recent transfer windows, using big sums made from sales of unwanted talents to fund the acquisition of superior replacements.
Chelsea banked over £100m from the sales of Juan Mata, David Luiz and Romelu Lukaku alone.
