Mohamed Salah has been in the news for quite some time now. The Egyptian Messi, as he is fondly known in his land of birth, has managed to display a similar form with us as the real Messi has managed against us, which is Poor!
As Salah was relegated to the lowest in the pecking order last season, the winger opted for a move to Serie A side Fiorentina in the January transfer window. Surprisingly, the ex-Basel man was an instant hit and probably exceeded every fans expectation by scoring 9 goals in 26 appearances. This even prompted some fans to criticize Mourinho over the Egyptian’s move without realizing the spaces he was consistently offered in the Italian league compared to the Bridge!
But, well, that’s a story for another day. Right now, Mohamed Salah is looking to start his new season on loan at the same club where he lit the world on fire. Figuratively of course! Here’s what talk sport has been reporting on the situation:
“The Serie A side will take the 23-year-old on loan for the season at a cost of £1m, with the club also holding the right to sign the player permanently for £12m at the end of the campaign.
The Egyptian was demanding a bumper pay packet of around £40,000-a-week, in line with some of the team’s top earners.
But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, those demands have now been met and Fiorentina are hopeful a deal will be concluded soon.”

The winger’s deal has been stalled for a few weeks because Salah has been demanding better salary after the interests from the other sides. However, everything seems to be in place now after Fiorentina have finally met the players demand.
Here’s wishing that Mohamed Salah continues his dangerous form and is finally able to live up to his name at Fiorentina. We will probably be hoping for a hefty profit at the end of the season as it is a bit unlikely he will ever put on the Blue shirt again. But then again, stranger things have happened in this sport so, we will be looking forward to the exciting times ahead!
