Chelsea will not sign a large number of players during the summer transfer window, boss Jose Mourinho said.
The Portuguese insists that the objective is to develop the young players of the squad adding elements only in certain areas of the pitch.
He also again confirmed that his intention is to keep goalkeeper Petr Cech at the club.
"Every player is linked to our club - some because they want to come and some because they want better contracts in their clubs," Mourinho said.
"That's the nature of the market and we are not going to play the game. We know what we want and, I repeat, it's not much.
"We don't need dramatic changes. We have to be loyal to our players. What other clubs are going to do is not going to affect our direction.
"I like my squad very, very much. It's a young squad, with space to improve, and as I was saying before I am in a different position from last season, because then I was more than keen for my club to sell some players.
"In this moment I am very, very happy to keep my players. The base last year was to sell some to buy some, and the base this season is to keep my squad.
"I want my best players, and my important players, which Petr [Cech] is, so I would like him to stay and that is my position.
"I don't know that it's absolutely true what his agent is saying, maybe it is, but the player has a contract with Chelsea, and Chelsea will have a very important say in the decision.
"I am optimistic and I would like him to stay."
