Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho would not rule out a raid on his former club Chelsea, despite revealing he only intends to make two or three new signings for the Italian giants.
Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have both been linked with a move to Inter since Mourinho was confirmed as their new coach, but the Portuguese boss would not name any names when he was presented to the media today.
Nevertheless, there was no hiding his esteem for the players he had at the Blues and Mourinho admitted he would be willing to buy - if Chelsea are willing to sell.
"I think it is normal as a consequence of the relationship with my players," he said. "Almost all of them want to work with me again in the future and the same goes for me.
"I have a great relationship with almost all of my players and it is normal that these rumours spread.
"But it depends on whether Chelsea want to sell - there has got to be a relation between what one club wants and what another club wants to do.
"The president knows what I would like, but I am not discussing names with the press."
