The reigning English champions continue to be linked with Barcelona winger Pedro but Mourinho has revealed that he wants one more player this summer and it is not in the form of an attacker.

“I am looking for a defender to finish this balance in our squad and after that we are ready to answer anything that can happen to our players,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

“If one of our players in a specific position wants to leave, we agree a deal for a player to leave and we have to answer immediately and bring in somebody else, because at the moment we have balance in the squad and we cannot lose that.”

He added: “I have five wingers, if I lose one maybe I am interested in another but at this moment I have balance and quality and numbers.

“It’s a big challenge for us to go through the season with basically the same team and squad from last season.”

The Blues have already signed Brazilian midfield pair Nathan and Kenedy, goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Stoke City, Serbian youngster Danilo Pantic, who has been loaned to Vitesse Arnhem, and Colombian striker Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco during the summer transfer window.

Spanish international Pedro is also linked with Arsenal and Liverpool.
