Chelsea boss Mourinho not expecting late transfer business
Mourinho does not expect Chelsea to be involved in any major transfer activity before the window closes.
"We have to think about the players, and the players deserve respect and co-operation from us as a club, but the club is the most important thing," he said.
"For me, football is about club, team, players, managers, so I am the last one in the list.
"We cannot give players things and put them in front of the team or the club. It must always be the other way round.
"Every decision the first thing we think about is the club and the team - but obviously, if you can make it good for club, team and also players, that is the perfect situation."
He added: "My club did a fantastic job, not just because they got what they need, but they did it in record time, the market for us could almost close July 31 instead of the end of August, so we are very calm.
"The counting down clock you have on Sky Sports News all of the time, for us there is no 'tick tock'."
