Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking relieved after Metro claim that one of their players has received permission to continue with the Blues after all.
The player we are talking about is of course Mohamed Salah who as one of our regulars notes, was in danger of being called up to the military in his native Egypt – yet has now thankfully been declared exempt from such duty.
Now that worry is over with for Blues fans and indeed the 22-year-old winger.
One of our punters points out the fact that Salah has a fair way to go before he impresses the majority of Blues fans and most of us are in fact wondering just why Chelsea and Jose Mourinho signed him from FC Basel anyway.
Given the Blues already have Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar at their disposal, attacking spaces are in short supply for the Blues and we think that Salah is going to end up just like Shaun Wright-Phillips – a waste of money.
Chelsea fans. Do you think Salah has a future at the club or will he just be farmed out on loan like Victor Moses? Let us know your thoughts below.
