Folks, you remember Jose Mourinho’s interview yesterday where he talked about Paul Pogba and Radamel Falcao at length? Well, the boss is on a roll now as he provides answers to all the important questions that have been going around in every Chelsea fans head this summer!
Talking to Sky Sports, Mourinho explained the Pedro situation and contrary to all the reports published in various tabloids, we are NOT INTERESTED in the Spanish winger:
“I have five wingers, if I lose one maybe I am interested in another but at this moment I have balance and quality and numbers.
“It’s a big challenge for us to go through the season with basically the same team and squad from last season.”
So, as it turns out, Pedro is more likely to join Mourinho’s “guru” rather than the disciple himself!
But what about John Stones? Blues have been linked with the Everton defender for quite a while now and even saw their official bid rejected by the Toffees, not so long ago:
“I am looking for a defender to finish this balance in our squad and after that we are ready to answer anything that can happen to our players.”
Mourinho didn’t mention John Stones’ name, but that would have been rude as the young defender is still an Everton player!
Filipe Luis is another player who is probably heading back to his old club, according to several tabloids. What does Mourinho think of that?
“If they want him back they have to pay, they have to pay and then we have to react and go to the market to keep our balance.
“If one of our players in a specific position wants to leave, we agree a deal for a player to leave and we have to answer immediately and bring in somebody else, because at the moment we have balance in the squad and we cannot lose that.”
With Mourinho hinting that Filipe Luis is up for sale, we should probably look for another Left-Back “to keep our balance”. Baba Rahman is one player that comes to mind who can challenge Azpilicueta for the first team minutes. This situation could get interesting. We will keep you informed about it!
Lastly, the craziest of all, the Mohamed Salah saga! The Portuguese made everything pretty clear with this statement:
“I see his future elsewhere. Either on loan or sold with an offer we are happy to accept. We have five wingers, and it is better not to have Salah back.”

After all the controversies Mohamed Salah managed to cause in a span of just one month, this was expected! Tthe Egyptian doesn’t have a future at the Bridge and will probably be sold sooner rather than later!
