Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was reportedly left angered by the club's failure to land him another striker in the summer transfer window.
The Blues added Samuel Eto'o to their squad towards the end of the deadline day, but were forced to cancel Demba Ba's proposed loan move to Arsenal due to the lack of additional signings.
The Portuguese boss was unhappy with the club's reluctance to sanction a big-money move for a new forward, according to the Daily Mail.
Romelu Lukaku was allowed join Everton on a season-long loan deal, leaving Mourinho with just Ba, Eto'o and Fernando Torres to work with until the window re-opens in January.
Mourinho saw two bids rejected for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney over the summer, while reported targets Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao joined Ligue 1 sides Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco respectively.
