The Chelsea manager confirmed before kickoff that the Salah signing is now complete

Jose Mourinho was always going to be asked about the status of Mohamed Salah at some point today, and before kickoff he confirmed to reporters that a deal with the player is now complete.

There is no word yet on when the club will make it official, but I can't imagine it will be long before we see some sort of announcement. I'd expect to hear that Salah will be signing a 5 1/2-year deal, and it will be interesting to see which shirt number he's assigned.

Regardless, it's nice to see Chelsea getting their business done quickly and efficiently this January. Here's hoping that they aren't done just yet, despite what Jose Mourinho has been saying publicly when pressed on the matter.
