Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has plans to trim his squad in the final weeks of the summer market.

Mourinho anticipates departures, but only temporarily.

"If somebody's coming, somebody will leave," Mourinho said. "The point is not to sell. I want a 22-player squad. If somebody comes, somebody leaves.

"Do we need to sell? No, we don't. Do we need to loan? Probably, yes.

"I don't like to work with big squads. I think 22 is the perfect number to answer to our needs."
