Even though the transfer season is long over, rumors are in no mood to take a break. Here is the latest one from Express.
According to reports, Spurs are now weighing up a £13m deal to bring the tricky wideman to White Hart Line with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen to add to his attacking options.
Out of the many rumors that I have come across all day, this one really caught my attention. Why? There are reasons.
Mohamed Salah is Not For Sale
The news may seem legit to the naked eyes, however, all that glitters is not gold. There are reasons though to believe why Chelsea might be interested in offloading Mohamed Salah, however, there are greater reasons why Chelsea will want him to be right in at the Stamford Bridge.
Media is projecting as if one talent who is presumably being butchered by Jose Mourinho this season is Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian Messi, as his fans would call him, was brought to Stamford Bridge after an impressive display of counter attacking football against the Blues. His heroics last season in the Champions League were nothing short of legendary. Obviously, his talent caught the eye of Jose Mourinho, and we needed a quick replacement for departing Juan Mata as well. However, the situations have changed a bit this season.
With Cesc Fabregas playing at number 10 (well almost always), even the super talented Oscar is struggling for a place in the starting eleven, then how can one expect Salah to start. Infact, Mohamed Salah was never expected to be among the players who will be in the starting eleven right from the start. He was supposed to be used as a super substitute, and he has not disappointed his manager till now by scoring 4 goals in 11 appearances for the blues. There is no reason why Jose will not be using him in that role any longer.
Moreover, there is a news that Real Madrid are interested in Ramires, and we all know what happens when The “Heavy Purse” Gallacticos get interested in someone (remember Gareth Bale saga?). If Ramires leaves, we will lose an important box to box player. Salah can be the one who can partially take up that responsibility (though he is not as defensively organized as Ramires or even Andre Schurrle). Schurlle is a great player, very versatile. But his consistency has always been a question.
Let’s not forget it’s going to be a long season for the blues, and when the injuries and fatigue start creeping in, we will need fresh legs to do the job. There are going to be plenty occasions where Salah can still shine. We need him to shine.
So please, someone tell the media guys. Mohamed Salah is here to play, Mohamed Salah here to stay and ofcourse Mohamed Salah is Not For Sale.
What do you think? Should we sell Salah, keep him at The Bridge, or simply loan him for couple of seasons?
