Chelsea have been relatively passive in the transfer window so far, as manager Jose Mourinho is not keen to buy players unless they are at the right price.
Teams like Manchester United and Liverpool have been active, but Mourinho is confident in his team’s transfer philosophy.
“They have only to speak in a positive way and praise the owner and praise the board because of their dedication and all the owner did for the club,” Mourinho said, according to The Metro.
“We managers want titles, players want titles, clubs want titles. Everyone has a contribution and I think the contribution of the owner has been massive in that respect.”
Despite Mourinho’s defence of Chelsea’s summer approach, the Blues are willing to splash the cash for some players.
This includes Everton defender John Stones, for whom Chelsea have made three bids, progressively raising their offer to £30m.
They are also close to sealing a £17m deal for Augsburg defender Baba Rahman.
The Blues already made a relatively significant signing in former Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
It is hard to question Chelsea’s transfer window approach at this point, as they are coming off a Premier League title.
Meanwhile, teams such as Liverpool still have yet to win a Premier League title despite aggressively pursuing some of the most expensive players in the transfer market.
