Jose Mourinho has told London24 that no activity in the January transfer window would be a "perfect situation".

After completing no more than 27 transfers in and out of the club this summer, the Chelsea manager has said he is happy with his current squad - despite links to Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney - and he said: “I’d be happy if nothing happens in January.

"I spoke with the players yesterday for the first time we were together in the final group.

“I told them my wish in January everybody is happy, I’m happy with everybody and I want no-one to come in.

“I think that’d be the perfect situation for us. We’ll keep doing our work."

The centre-forward position at Chelsea has been scrutinised in the past few days, with Mourinho happy to allow Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku out on loan. Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba make up the Blues' strike force, with just 10 Premier League goals between them.

One area Chelsea are strong in is in midfield, where the additions of Andre Schürrle, Willian and Marco van Ginkel cast doubts over the positions of Oscar, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.

However, Mourinho says he is not worrying about the happiness of his players and he said: "I don’t know if I can keep them happy or not.

"I’m happy and I’m happy because I have so many good players because doing well or wrong I do it in an honest way.

“The way to do it in an honest way is let them speak on the pitch. I will judge on the pitch.

“I won’t judge of status, words, interviews, agents or parents or friends or press or Twitter or something like that.

He added: “I will let football speak and decide. If one guy is the man of the match, he has to play the next match.”

Chelsea face Swiss champions Basel on Wednesday, with Ramires suspended and John Obi Mikel struggling to overcome a knee injury.
