Chelsea boss Mourinho planning to wait for summer signings

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is in the market for a new center-forward.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he is not planning to sign any new players until after the World Cup.

The Portuguese has already begun planning for next season after captain John Terry was signed to a new one-year contract but left-back Ashley Cole has revealed his future lies away from Stamford Bridge after eight successful years in west London.

Mourinho had already admitted he was in the market for a new center-forward after poor goal returns from Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba.

He told Sky Sports News: "Since the market will be open until 31st August, like it is, I think it will be more of the same.

"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."
