Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has taunted Manchester City’s transfer approach after the Blues’ title rivals signed Wilfried Bony for a fee believed to be around £25 million.
Mourinho jokingly remarked City may bend Financial Fair Play rules, but they can still only field 11 players.
"Well done, good player, good striker, if they have the money and can spend it and have no problems with (Financial Fair Play), well done," Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference on Friday.
"They can only play with 11, unless the rules for them are different and they can play with 12.
“It looks like the rules are different for them in certain aspects, but not this one. If Bony plays and Dzeko is on the bench, I am happy with that.
“Fantastic squad, one more top player for that squad, Aguero, Jovetic, Bony and Dzeko are fantastic. Well done."
The Portuguese also insisted he is happy with his current Chelsea squad, but didn’t want to rule out the possiblity of making a signing in January.
"Last year, you asked me and I didn't lie to you but at the end Mata was sold and because he was sold we had to react to that," Mourinho added.
"I am happy with the squad, it is not big, but we have a good group, not just a group to play but to live together.
"I will be happy if nobody leaves or comes this month but the market is open and you never know. I do not want to lie to you."
