According to the winger, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho messaged him and then called him to discuss the potential move, however Salah missed the Special One’s phone call, and because he had no credit on his mobile he was unable to call Jose back.
Instead, the Egyptian star logged onto WhatsApp in order to make contact with the Chelsea gaffer, and from there two manager and player hashed out the details of his contract at Stamford Brodge.
