Jose Mourinho confirms changes to be made in summer

Published 10 Comments

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he expects to make changes to his Chelsea squad this summer.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Chelsea's trip to the KC Stadium to face Hull City on Sunday, Mourinho said that while he expects his transfer activity to be 'nice and quiet', he does believe that a few alterations will be made.

"We like our squad, we like our players," Mourinho said. "With a couple of exceptions we have a young squad."

"We are getting great credibility with the players we sell because they are good players.

"Our transfer policy does not need a lot of funds. I like our squad. Once more our transfer policy will be nice and quiet.

"I am happy with the squad I have. Zero movement in or out? I don't believe [so].

"There are always a couple of changes to be made. I am not worried about funds because we are fine."

Chelsea have done very well in terms of bringing in transfer funds in recent seasons, selling the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Juan Mata for big money.

That has allowed Mourinho to replenish his squad each transfer window, with the January addition of Juan Cuadrado partly financed by the sale of Andre Schurrle and the departure of Mohamed Salah.

It's an effective transfer strategy that many in the Premier League would surely love to emulate. Chelsea buy youngsters like Thibaut Courtois, de Bruyne and Lukaku, loan them out and watch their value increase.

If, like Courtois, they make the grade at Chelsea then that directly benefits Mourinho's first team. But if not, that's no problem as Chelsea can make a profit on their sale, allowing Mourinho to reinvest in areas of the squad he wants to prioritise.

What do you think Chelsea fans - what should Mourinho do in the transfer market this summer?
