Transfer Rater: Jamie Vardy to Chelsea


Mourinho: Chelsea to wait for World Cup

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is not planning on bringing in any new players until the World Cup ends.

Jose Mourinho says Chelsea 'do not have big work to do' in the summer transfer window.

The summer transfer window opens July 1, but the tournament does not conclude until July 13.

Chelsea have already signed captain John Terry to a new one-year contract, while Ashley Cole said this week that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho has said the future of the club lies with young midfielders Eden Hazard, Oscar, Nemanja Matic, while also questioning the age of his strikers, particularly 33-year-old Samuel Eto'o.

As the Portuguese targets more forwards, a deal for Atletico's Diego Costa is reportedly nearly complete, and Romelu Lukaku could return from his successful loan spell at Everton.

But Mourinho is in no hurry to make the moves, and he told Sky Sports that he believes other clubs will also wait for the summer's tournament to finish before focusing on the transfer market.

"Since the market will be open until 31st August, like it is, I think it will be more of the same," Mourinho said. "I think people (will) wait for the World Cup, wait for the first reaction of the first team, wait until after something happens.

"At Chelsea, the manager is the same, the basic structure of the team is the same, we don't need the season to finish and the results of the season make the decisions about what we need and what we don't need.

"Everything was done during the season, we knew perfectly what we wanted and I don't think we have huge work to do during the summer really."
