Salah has struggled to break into Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans on a consistent basis at Stamford Bridge and according to the La Gazzetta dello Sport, he has agreed terms to leave the Blues for the rest of the season.
The Egyptian international joined Chelsea as a result of Kevin De Bruyne leaving Chelsea in search of regular first-team football. He came at £11m from FC Basle last January. Will the cycle repeat again? Mourinho can look for a replacement in the market or choose to recall a player like Piazon, Moses or Atsu from loan. A player from academy can also get promoted to the first team as both Ramires and Remy can fill in on the wings in case of an emergency.
This seems to be a good move for both the player and the club as Salah has been unable to convince himself as a viable backup in case of an injury to the likes of Hazard or Oscar. What do you think?
