The 29-year-old has since recovered and has been in good form alongside Thomas Partey, while Roma has solved his needs in the middle of the advance by bringing in another Arsenal midfielder, Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
However, Mourinho is ready for further talks with his old friends in North London next summer.
