Juan Mata and David Luiz: In Jose Mourinho's plans for the new season
Jose Mourinho has refused to comment further on Chelsea's bid to sign Wayne Rooney - but says there is "no chance" either Juan Mata or David Luiz will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
Chelsea have publicly denied offering either player in part-exchange for the Manchester United striker, their No 1 transfer target.
And on arrival in Malaysia for the latest leg of the club's pre-season tour, Mourinho could not have been clearer that both Luiz and Mata are part of his plans for the new season.
Asked about the possibility of selling either, he said: "No chance. No chance."

Mourinho, as expected, stonewalled direct questions about Rooney 24 hours after openly admitting the England striker was his sole remaining target.


United continue to insist they will not sell, while Rooney has made it clear he is not prepared to accept second billing at Old Trafford after nine years of service.
And there was a suggestion Mourinho had Rooney's comments in mind when he was asked in Kuala Lumpur whether next summer's World Cup will provide added motivation for players this season.
He said: "Any player that wants to go to the World Cup, if they are a second choice in their club they are in trouble. They are in trouble."
Rooney, meanwhile, was at United's training complex on Thursday for ongoing treatment on his hamstring injury.

Mourinho was asked to assess the merits of Chelsea against their rival Premier League clubs.

He insisted it was not possible for him to compare, but that his thoughts were with the Blues in the intervening period between his September 2007 departure and his return last month.
"If Chelsea can become a really special club for me, it's because Chelsea can be a special club for everybody," Mourinho said.
"I left the club in 2007. I went to two fantastic football countries like Italy and Spain, I went to two fantastic football clubs like Inter Milan and Real Madrid and I was always wishing to be back.
"This club is so special that I'm back and I hope to stay for a long time. That's the only thing I can say, to every other professional in the world. This is my own experience. I'm back and I'm so happy I'm back."
Mourinho's wife was influential in his decision to leave Madrid and return to west London and he again pointed to his happiness.

"The most important thing in football, either for players or for managers is the passion, the happiness and the feelings we have for a club," the Portuguese said.
"We all are professionals, but at the same time we all are in love with our job.
"If you can execute your mission, your job - either as a player or a manager - not just because you are paid for it, not just because it's your job, it's your work, but because you can do it with happiness and passion and feeling, that's the most important thing.
"The most important thing for me is the deep feeling I'm at a really special football club.
"Not many clubs are like that, where people remember you and the fans sing your name, not just at Stamford Bridge but all over the world, you can't have a better feeling."
