Chelsea spending ‘finished’, says Mourinho

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says that his side will not be making any more signings this summer.

However ‘The Special One’ says that his team’s transfer business is done for this year:

“We finished the market,” he told BBC Sport. “The transfer market closes 31 August and we close on July 19.

“My club did a fantastic job, not just because of what we bought, but because we did it in almost record time.”

In the past Chelsea have been known for lavish spending on a host of big names, but despite there only being three new senior pro’s at the club while veteran stars have left, Mourinho says he’s happy with this summer:

“The club did fantastic, we knew the targets, we knew the players and the club attacked them and their clubs at a very early stage,

“We got exactly what we need and what we want. The squad is one which I like very much and I look forward to starting the season.”
