Jose Mourinho's "quiet" summer in the transfer market.

Think back to this time last season and you would have seen a marked difference in Jose Mourinho compared to now when he talks of Chelsea's summer transfer business. He indicates that this summer, Chelsea will be quiet. Which means you would be better off taking an interest in the new Jurassic Park movie- do you believe him?

Last season Mourinho was adamant that Chelsea would move from being considered "a little horse" in the title race to become realistic challengers. We all bought into what we was saying because we all knew that it would be true. Two or three big signings in key areas would take us to that level and Jose delivered Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas!

So to now and all these rumours we are reading about on a daily basis. It was obvious that some of these names would be talked about in his pre-match press conference yesterday (featured here) and Jose's response was much calmer than this time last season.

When asked of improvements to his squad and potential transfer business he replied by saying:

"I expect to be busy walking from my towel in the sand to the water, swim a little bit and be back to the sun again. That's where I expect to be busy.

I'm in a different position to last season. Last season I was more than keen for my club to sell some players. At this moment I'm very happy to keep my players.

The base last year was to sell some to buy some. The base this season is to keep my squad."

Later in the interview, he did mention that Chelsea have room for some activity to make "improvements" to our squad and gave the impression it would be around the same two or three players but that is dependant on how many decide to leave us this summer.

Jose Mourinho made a comment a while ago in his first stint as Manager of Chelsea when he told the press that he would never tell them the truth when it came to signings and the rumours surrounding potential signings at Chelsea and I just wonder if he is doing the same again.

I do agree that Chelsea do not need much at all but to just strengthen in three key areas - Left back, Defensive Midfielder and another Striker so I wonder if we will see Jose and the Chelsea board move early to get their deals done ahead of the summer break as they did last term?

Jose Mourinho is saying that Chelsea will have a quiet transfer window compared to everyone else who is looking to close the gap on us this season and described the transfer market potentially like a "wall street crash" based on how much business the others will need to do to catch us!

Do you agree?
