Chelsea transfers: Jose Mourinho discusses Mohamed Salah future
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he is in the dark over the future of Roma target Mohamed Salah at Stamford Bridge
Jose Mourinho admits he has “no idea” what the future holds for Chelsea midfielder Mohamed Salah.
The Egypt international spent the second half of the 2014/15 season on loan at Fiorentina and went on to score a respectable six goals in 16 games in Serie A.
La Viola were reported to be keen to sign the African on a season-long loan for the upcoming campaign, but the 23-year-old midfielder rejected the proposed move.
And Salah appeared to hint at an imminent move to Fiorentina’s Serie A rivals Roma on Twitter after he posted the below tweet and change his bio in the above photograph.

However, when Mourinho was quizzed about Salah’s future after a 1-0 loss to Fiorentina in their final pre-season friendly at Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea manager conceded that he was in the dark on Egyptian’s future.
“I have no idea [about his future],” Mourinho told his post-match media conference.
“I just know that Salah left Chelsea a few months ago to play on loan with Fiorentina.
“I was happy because he was playing every game and that’s the objective of a loan.”
Salah opted to join Chelsea ahead of Liverpool in an £11m deal in January 2014.
The Blues winger has scored just two goals in 19 games in all competitions for the Premier League champions.
