Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is happy to see the transfer window come to an end after a busy summer for the Blues.

The west London club did a lot of business in the recent window and had to fend off late bids for some of their top players. 

Speaking to ChelseaTVMourinho is happy not only to see the transfer window end, but more importantly to have the chance to focus on building his new side. 

The Portuguese is content with the deals they have made, in terms of signings and players sold. Even though the Blues missed out on main target Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.  

"For us, I think everything was done properly and calmly and decisions were made with a lot of time (to spare)," said the Chelsea manager.

Chelsea were made an offer of a swap deal involving Fernando Torres and Emmanuel Adebayor, plus a fee for Torres, from London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Mourinho also felt the need to prevent Demba Ba going on loan to Arsenal after the Gunners signed Mezut Ozil from Real Madrid. 

Chelsea did not make any deadline day attempts to bring in new additions to the squad but Mourinho understands the hectic nature of the final hours of the window. 

"Of course there are always in the last day things to do and people to leave because we have to think about us, as a team, as a group, as a club, but we have also to think about the players individually, what is the best team for them and what is the best for us in terms of the future," he added

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku joined Everton on loan until the end of the season after he was tipped to make the forward role at Stamford Bridge his own, but Mourinho believes this is the right decision for the young Belgian. 

"We have Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, and of course he would have had the chances to play but another thing is the chance to play every weekend," he said. 

Lukaku scored 14 Premier league goals on loan at West Bromwich Albion last season but will not play for the Blues for another campaign. 

"He had (possible) clubs, he had options and he made that decision, I have to respect that decision and hopefully it goes well for him and goes well for everyone," he concluded.
