Jose Mourinho refuses to discuss Chelsea transfer targets

Jose MourinhoJose Mourinho has refused to be drawn on Chelsea’s transfer targets and insists he will be happy with his squad if he fails to sign another player before Tuesday’s deadline.

The Premier League champions have seen three bids rejected by Everton for defender John Stones and have been heavily linked with a big-money move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Stones attempted to force a move by submitting a transfer request but this was rejected and manager Roberto Martinez and the club’s board have reiterated the 21-year-old centre-back is not for sale.

Mourinho refused to be drawn when asked if he had been priced out of a deal for Stones during a press conference for the weekend visit of Crystal Palace, which will mark his 100th Premier League home game as Chelsea boss.

“I don’t speak about players from other teams,” he said.

“I have a good squad. I’m happy with the squad I have. If I get another player before the end of the market, good. If I don’t get, we go with what we have.”
