Mohamed Salah won't be leaving Chelsea on loan today, according King Fut. Instead, he's already en route to Egypt to hook up with the national team.

This news should be less than surprising, as Salah looked pretty good during the preseason and showed flashes of real potential during the run-in last season. He'd also leave the club a bit thin if he departed, though if the squad remains injury free, appearances could be somewhat difficult to come by.

That said, as Mourinho has mentioned several times before, the fixture list will begin to get a bit more congested shortly. Once the Champions League group stage and Capital One Cup get rolling right along, the Blues will have a substantial stretch where they're playing every weekend and midweek. Bodies will be needed, especially if Oscar's ankle turns worrisome.
