Jose Mourinho is on the look out for two or three players this summer, but believes it will be difficult to better what he already has.
Chelsea won the league by eight points, losing only three games, and Mourinho told the Mirror keeping the players he’s got will be the most important thing.
The Blues jetted out for a post season tour of Thailand and Australia and ahead of the first match against a Thailand All-Stars XI, the Chelsea boss was glowing with praise for his squad.
“How can I find a better striker than Diego Costa? A better midfielder than Matic? A better right-back than Ivanovic?
“If you come to a champion team you are not a big name. The big names are the champions.
“Our squad this season was very good. We didn’t have many injuries. We had three players play 38 matches of the Premier League.
“At this moment everybody is happy at the club. Two or three are always coming to the club, that’s normal.
“[But] the players I am looking for are my players, the players I want to keep. Last season I had players I wanted to sell.
“The most important thing is not to lose players.”
STRIKER A PRIORITY
Despite saying it will be difficult to find a striker better than Costa, the attacking department will definitely be an area of recruitment.
Club legend Didier Drogba has left, leaving just Loic Remy as back up to Costa who has suffered injury problems.
Whether Mourinho signs a Remy-type back-up or direct competitor for Costa will be crucial in achieving the difficult task of winning back-to-back titles.
