Chelsea boss Mourinho admits Lukaku, Courtois could be sold

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho cannot rule out selling star pair Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois. He admits several of his players out of loan will be sold.

Mourinho said: "Chelsea made great investment in the past and in some moments were also a bit criticised because we did so much. But things change.

"Chelsea adapted well to the situation. When you see De Bruyne, who played three or four matches, give us a big profit, there are other players who maybe don't play a single match for Chelsea and we will look to sell them at a profit. We have had to organise ourselves in a different way. Before me, Chelsea did fantastic work in this level: Lukaku, De Bruyne, Courtois, young [Thorgan] Hazard and [Lucas] Piazon.

"Not all of them will have a career at Chelsea but all of them are important in this new financial organisation. So Chelsea worked very well and probably started doing that before other clubs.

"Because of that, even if FFP comes into practice, I think Chelsea are very advanced."
