Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has claimed he does not expect to overhaul his squad in the summer despite being eliminated in the Champions League prior to the quarter-final stage.

Some reports recently claimed the Portuguese boss was ready to break the bank to bolster the squad in order to compete for Europe's elite competition next season after the Blues were knocked out by Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16.

But the Chelsea manager claimed he was happy with his squad and said he will make improvements but is not planning on any major moves.

"Our transfer policy doesn't need a lot of funds because we don't need a lot of things. We like our squad. We like our players," Mourinho said during the press conference ahead of the game against Hull on 22 March.

"With a couple of exceptions, we have a young squad. I think our policy will be nice and quiet and also a consequence of the players we sell. We sell good players. I think we are getting great credibility with the players we sell because we sell good players so let's see what happens.

"If you ask [if there] are zero movements in or out I say I don't believe because you always want to improve and there's always a couple of changes to be made. I'm not worried about funds."

With Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas been forced to play a number of extra games this season due to the Blues being short of players in midfield, Chelsea are expected to strengthen this area in the summer.

The Blues have recently been linked with Atletico Madrid playmaker Koke and Paul Pogba, Juventus' coveted midfielder. But Mourinho refused to confirm any interest in former Manchester United starlet Pogba and insisted academy star Ruben Loftus-Cheek will have more chances to play next season. "I don't speak about Pogba or other players. We look to our midfield players and between Fabregas, Matic, Ramires, Ruben, we have a good group."

On the topic of Loftus-Cheek, he added: "I think he will be a player to compete for a position. Now is the moment to protect him. If in this moment we were sixth or seventh, he would play.

"Ruben is a player who I expect to compete for a place in the team next season. His evolution is superb. I believe a lot in Ruben. In the next season Ruben is not a number, he is a player to compete for a place."
