Jose Mourinho is ready to sell one of his Chelsea defenders after confirming the capture of Julian Belletti from Barcelona had brought his summer spending to a close.

Chelsea now have Glen Johnson, Lassana Diarra and Paul Ferreira as support right-backs to Belletti and it seems certain that one of them will leave before the closure of the transfer window.

Mourinho said: "The market is open until August 31st but not for us. We have the new signings we fought for and we have the balance in the squad. But I want my squad to be just a little bit smaller. We have 27 players because Belletti comes in but Arjen Robben goes out, and if we can, we will go down to 26."
