Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed reports of a bid for Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao.

"I don't want Portuguese players," Mourinho said. "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)."

A move for Colombia striker Jackson Martinez was also downplayed, with Mourinho happy with his forward options Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba.

Mourinho added: "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.

"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."
