Jose Mourinho has once again claimed that his Chelsea side is ready for the season ahead, with no more new faces to arrive at Stamford Bridge.
With the arrival of Didier Drogba followed by the signings of Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis, the Chelsea boss insists he’s now happy with his squad.
“My club did a fantastic job and not just because of what we bought, a fantastic job because we did it almost in record time,” Mourinho told Sport Magazine.
“We knew the targets, the club attacked them and their clubs at a very early stage and we did exactly what we want.”
The Chelsea manager also says he’s looking to integrate some of the youngsters into his squad, instead of spend more money on foreign transfers which would block their way in to the first team.
“We don’t want a squad of only end-products, we also want to bring to the first team three, four or five under-21s and develop players, so we are happy with the balance that we have.”
With his squad already settled by the end of July, Mourinho will hope that this gives his team a competitive advantage as the other title chasing teams are still to add to their squad over the coming weeks.
