Following last night’s Uefa Super Cup loss to Bayern Munich Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho declared that Chelsea’s transfer business for the summer was over.
Mourinho had identified Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney as the man he most wanted to bring to Stamford Bridge, but after having made a couple of unsuccessful bids he now accepts that the England international is not for sale.
Moving on to plan B the Portuguese manager signed Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.
When asked if there would be any other signings before the transfer window closes on Monday Mourinho told Sky Sports: “It’s the end. We have a good group.
“Samuel will give us other kind of qualities in attack. He is an experienced player in a team that needs some experienced players.”
When asked about Rooney, Mourinho added: “For all parties, it’s finished. One thing is to tell you through other people that you want, you want, you want very much, but at the end of the day…
“I feel everyone has the right to show his life, his future and I respect that.”
