Chelsea are losing their battle to keep Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge.
Speculation mounted that Cole would leave Chelsea in the summer after he cried on a team lap of appreciation following the final home game of the season against Norwich on Sunday.
Cole's representatives are in discussions with Chelsea regarding a new deal, but Press Association Sport understands the left-back is more likely to head for pastures new.
"They are with the club on their future," Mourinho said regarding Cole, Terry and Lampard after the 0-0 draw against Norwich.
"Now it's time to wait a little bit. The summer is a long summer for us.
"For the players involved in the World Cup it's a different story, but for us, as a club, it's a long time to be calm, to discuss and to analyse options and the market and possibilities."
