Blues fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been awaiting news of another deal at Stamford Bridge this summer, and news has come from Chelsea that a deal has been completed, but it is not the announcement that they were hoping for.
Chelsea have confirmed via their Twitter account that winger Mohamed Salah has joined Serie A side Roma on a permanent deal.

The Egyptian international spent last season on loan with the Italian outfit and having been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge has finalised his move away.
The 24-year-old joined Chelsea from Basel in 2014 but only went on to make 19 appearances for the Blues, scoring only twice, but picking up Premier League and League Cup winner’s medals.
The winger spent the second half of the 2014/15 season with fellow Serie A side, Fiorentina.
Blues fans, we want to hear from you! What do you make of this deal? Did Salah still have something to offer Conte in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below…
