There is some familiar chat here in the Football Transfer Tavern on a very tipsy evening for the Chelsea Fans. It looks as if Jose Mourinho will once again axe a player with bags of potential and deem Mohammed Salah as surplus to requirements.
The 23-year old Egyptian winger spent last term out on loan at Fiorentina and the Express are reporting 19-year old Bertrand Traore – returning from loan at Vitesse Arnhem – will be involved in the senior squad next season. This has lead to Salah being shown the exit door and he will now be moving on.
Salah’s most likely destination of departure is looking set to be Serie A, but this time Roma reports the Daily Mail. Despite the fact the youth of forward Bertrand Traore being given a chance should be seen as a positive, the farewell to Salah has caused some unease amongst some of the Blues fans that are a few pints deep.
Some fella’s over by the fruity machine in the Football Transfer Tavern had this to say: “fair enough Traore looks decent, but Salah never got a chance”… ” i would have at least like to have seen Mourinho give him a whole season at the Bridge, Salah could have definitely done a job for us”.
There you go Chelsea fans, some of you aren’t happy……. What do you think? Will you be angry if Salah leaves? Should Mourinho give him a chance? Let us know in the comments below!
