Chelsea to muscle in on Liverpool’s Salah deal?



With a big tranche of money apparently on the way from Manchester United in exchange for Juan Mata, reports are suggesting that the cash is unlikely to stay in the Blues’ bank account very long. The summer saw the west London club snatch wide man Willian from under the noses of Tottenham as they negotiated a deal with Shaktar Donetsk, and they may be looking to reprise the trick by signing Egyptian international Mohammed Salah who has been heavily linked with Liverpool.

The player is certainly no unknown quantity for Chelsea. Salah, dubbed the Egyptian Messi, scored in both games of Chelsea’s Champions’ League group games against Basle, including the winner in Switzerland that could, on another day have cost the Blues qualification.

The Swiss club will be greatly encouraged by Chelsea’s interest as they were looking for a fee in the region of £16million, but Liverpool have been reluctant to go above £12million. There is now the prospect of an auction developing and Basle’s Swiss bank account could be in for a windfall.

It’s understood that Salah would prefer a move to Anfield as he would be likely to get more game time in Brendan Rodgers’ team, but the extra financial muscle that Chelsea can bring to bear may be sufficient to persuade both club and player that dealing with the west London outfit is the better option.

Football is a game of passions and opinions. If you’re a fan, it’s both your boon and your bane; the drug that you simply cannot live without. Your team will break your heart, make you despair and swear that you’ll give them up. Like some lovestruck fool ensnared by a femme fatale however, you’ll be back again next week. You know it. They know it. Just accept it and embrace it. The lows are bad, but oh, those highs….. Now in my sixth decade, I’ve been a football fan for over fifty years and a Chelsea fan for every one of them. I hold FA Coaching badges and have been a member of the FA Coaches Association for over 15 years, working with numerous teams of varying age and ability levels; it’s the next best thing to playing. That said, I still regularly don the guise of the ‘Panther’, and keep goal for our company team. I’ve written a number of articles focusing on Spanish Football for a different website, and welcome this opportunity to “call it as I see it, without fear or favour” about our game. As I said, football is a game of passions and opinions, so agree or disagree with what I write as you see fit, I’ll passionately tell you my opinion, you tell me yours.

  1. Why can’t Mourinho get his own targets and stop trying to muscle in when other teams have done all the work?
    Where would Salah play? They already have more world class players than they can use.
    I knew he would start treading on toes when he came back, the arrogant so and so.

  2. He can play as a striker too its an added advantage!! If he can prove his worth then Mou wont mind benching Tores / Eto / ba / Schurrle / Willian ..also if he see no future then mou will happily let em leave, KDB and Mata has been allowed for their own good, not like L’pool or Man utd who loves to destroy career!!
