Chelsea confirm signing of Liverpool ‘target’ Mohamed Salah
The Blues will sell Mata to Manchester United for £37m, with an announcement expected imminently.
Yet they have not waited for the completion of that deal before spending the money.
Salah will join subject to the Egyptian international agreeing personal terms and completing a medical examination.
The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool but Jose Mourinho has been able to push ahead and secure his services.
