​Chelsea deny Witsel interest

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is not in the market for another midfielder having already enough in his squad.

The Blues have been strongly linked with Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel, who is also wanted by AC Milan.

But Mourinho said: "At this moment we have (Nemanja) Matic, Ramires, (Cesc) Fabregas, Mikel, (Ruben) Loftus-Cheek and Oscar. Six midfield players.

"I have no space for midfield players. No space. So if somebody talks about midfield players it's not true."
