Mourinho wants to keep Mata and De Bruyne

Jose Mourinho has insisted he wants to keep Juan Mata and Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea and told any players who wish to leave Stamford Bridge this month that they will not be sold on the cheap.

I keep saying that I want him (Mata) to stay.

There isn't offers. We have no offers. When I said 'I don't want him to leave', he was focused on that and not focused on when I said 'the door is always open'.

We know that he (De Bruyne) fancies a move, but he is a fantastic player and fantastic players are very expensive," Mourinho said.

I don't want him to leave, but we have a couple of contacts, made not by us, because we don't want to sell.

– Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
