Mohamed Salah was the hot name in Italian transfer market in the past month: the Egyptian player created a real saga, refusing another loan to Fiorentina, the club where he spent the second part of the last season, impressing with outstanding performances and 10 goals in all the competitions.
It was rumoured that Inter offered him a new deal, trying to get him on loan or negotiating with Chelsea for a permanent deal, so Fiorentina threatened to take the player and Inter to court.
At the end the player came back to his parent club, Chelsea, who will decide on his future, and many people were ready to bet about José Mourinho taking him to pre-season training camp in Canada and tour in the USA, to observe him and verify his progress after the Serie A spell.
But the manager decided not to take him in Montreal and selected players like Victor Moses, who was on loan to Stoke City in the last campaign, or youngsters Chalobah, Clarke-Salte and Ola Aina, with even new signing Kenedy joining them in Montreal, but he didn’t select Salah, that now is officially aside of first team squad and ready to leave Chelsea again.
Salah’s agent is now expected in London to negotiate with Chelsea board about the player future: the Egyptian star is a target Italian giants Roma and Inter, but in the last days also Liverpool entered the “battle” to sign him, an option that will allow him to stay in the Premier League and be more ready for Chelsea in case he will return in the future.
