Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has said that there will be no more transfer activity at the club this summer.

After splashing out over £80m on the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Filipe Luis, Mourinho has said there will be no more deals for the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Title challenge

Speaking to the media, Mourinho said: "I have to say my club did a fantastic job, and not just because of what we bought, but because we did it in almost record time. The transfer market closes on August 31 and we close our market on July 19. We finished the market today."

The Portuguese will be hoping his substantial outlay on new players can see Chelsea mount a strong title challenge having finished in third place last summer, although he stated that he believes anyone of five teams could win the league title this coming season.

"Why I like the Premier League so much is that at this moment, nobody knows who is going to win the title," Mourinho said.

"At this moment, I think between us, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City - who is going to be first, who is going to play in Europa League, I don't know."


Despite Mourinho's sentiments, they have continually been linked with yet more arrivals as we edge ever closer to the start of the season.

Sami Khedira has been the subject of intense transfer speculation with the Premier League his preferred destination, and a surprise return to Stamford Bridge for Didier Drogba has also been touted recently.

Romelu Lukaku is set to stay at the club after Mourinho offered him the chance to prove his worth at the clubs pre-season tour of Europe.
