Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he's following closely one mystery English player.

Speaking on Friday, Mourinho revealed he made an enquiry for an English player - not Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney - during the summer transfer window.

"I like a young player, a young English player," said Mourinho. "The market is closed but I asked a question to position myself to see where he was. We are speaking about a very young player but his price was like he has 50 caps when he had none.

"The price for English players is very high, the market is very difficult."
