Salah has not yet put pen to paper on a contract, or passed a medical, and Liverpool still retain an active interest in the player, but Mourinho insists the 21-year-old has made up his mind.
"Everything is signed and done with Basel subject to the medical [which will take place in Switzerland]," Mourinho told reporters. "We know he is very happy to come.
"We believe if he comes he'll have a similar process to Willian. He needs two to three months to grow up and feel comfortable with us.
"He can play right, left or as a No.10. He's fast, creative, enthusiastic, a humble personality on the pitch and works for the team.
"We don't know what Liverpool were doing [about Salah]. We spoke to his club, agreed the details and he wants to sign for Chelsea."
