Mourinho willing to let Salah & Filipe Luis leave Chelsea

The Egyptian and Brazilian are likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after finding first-team opportunities limited

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed Filipe Luis and Mohamed Salah will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge permanently this summer for the right fee.

The Brazil international joined from Atletico Madrid last year for €22.7 million but could be set for a return to the Vicente Calderon, though Mourinho has warned that the defender will only be sold for the right price.

Meanwhile, Salah’s future remains uncertain after rejecting the chance to extend his loan spell at Fiorentina, with Roma now reportedly keen, and Mourinho admits there is no room for the Egyptian in his squad.

“If they want him back then they have to pay and we have to discuss the offer,” Mourinho told reporters. “Then we have to react and we have to go in the market.

“I see Salah’s future elsewhere, either as a loan or an offer that we are happy to accept. At the moment, with Hazard and Willian, Traore, Moses and Cuadrado, we have five players for these positions. It is better not to have so many.”
