Pay per head services know in the transfer window, the Portuguese coach is expected to freshen up his squad in his bid for silverware this season, and betting shops saw that there was speculation that he was planning an exchange for Porto striker Jackson Martinez.
But Mourinho dismissed the claims, saying that he’s satisfied with his current forward options of Demba Ba, Fernando Torres, and Samuel Eto’o – all of them very famous with pay per head services and betting shops for their great talent on the pitch.
“It’s not true what I read a couple of days ago, that the agent was in London and was meeting with me or Chelsea directors. It’s not true at all,” he said.
“In the January market we are not going to buy any striker. We will go to the end of the season with Fernando, with Samuel and with Demba. Nobody to go in, nobody to go out.”
Betting shops saw that the absence of Ashley Cole in recent weeks, with Spain right-back Cesar Azpilicueta favoured at left-back, led to rumours about his future and the possible arrival of Portugal international Coentrao to the club.

“Now is the time for the squad,” said Mourinho.
“And now is the time for everybody to feel that they have a chance, when we play now Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday – Southampton, Sunderland and Stoke.
“The S-S-S week, everybody will have a chance.
“Ash will play for sure and will have the chance to show that he’s fine,” he added.
When Mourinho was asked about Coentrao, he said: “I don’t want Portuguese players.
“I always had them, but I think in this moment it’s enough. Only Hilario is the remaining one and we don’t need (others).”
