Jose Mourinho intends to complete the signings of Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw BEFORE the start of the World Cup.

The Chelsea manager insists he wants just two major acquisitions this summer and the club are already believed to be working on deals for Paris Saint-Germain’s Uruguay striker Cavani and Southampton starlet Shaw.

Mourinho is not planning to go to Brazil for the World Cup finals – instead going on a charity mission with the World Food Programme this summer.

Sunday Mirror Sport revealed last month that Cavani is the major signing Mourinho has targeted to propel his squad back into the top bracket of European football.

Cavani is unsettled playing in a wide role at PSG, and it is believed his representatives have sounded out potential buyers, with Chelsea at the front of the queue.

A deal for Cavani would probably need to break the £50million British transfer record fee Chelsea paid Liverpool for Fernando Torres three years ago.
