What Mohamed Salah has already said about Chelsea’s transfer decision as Liverpool dealt a significant blow

Chelsea are one of three Premier League clubs interested in signing Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, with Todd Boehly eager to bring star players to Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to the MailOnline, the American-led consortium that finalised a £4.25 billion takeover of the west London club on Monday would ‘push for A-list stars’ to usher in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

And Boehly is ready to bolster the Blues’ arsenal; according to The Telegraph, after player sales, Thomas Tuchel will have £200 million at his disposal to reinforce his team.

Chelsea have surfaced as a prospective destination for Salah, whose contract at Anfield expires next summer, with the Blues prepared to throw their weight about in the forthcoming transfer window.

According to The Athletic, the 29-year-old Egyptian is looking for a Premier League move if he doesn’t have a future in Merseyside. He has already spoken about his departure from Stamford Bridge over eight years ago.

Chelsea paid £11 million to Basel for Salah’s services in January 2014, making the young winger one of Europe’s hottest properties. 

However, the then-youngster only made 19 appearances for the Blues in two and a half years, with Jose Mourinho hesitant to give him enough opportunities to develop.

“When I look back, [I had] bad advice with the situation,” the Egypt captain told GQ. “It was so tough for me, mentally. I couldn’t handle the pressure I had from the media, coming from outside. I was not playing that much. I felt, ‘No, I need to go’.”

He did just that, and had loan spells in Italy with Fiorentina and AS Roma before signing a permanent deal with the latter in 2016. It was there that he created a name for himself across Europe before joining Liverpool in a £36.9 million transfer.

“You have two choices: to tell the people that they are right to put you on a bench, or to prove them wrong,” Salah added. “I needed to prove them wrong. The best thing you could have is a serious conversation with yourself. Just get a coffee and just sit like this and just ask yourself what you want.

“Some people can’t face themselves properly. But I have no problem with that. If I’m struggling, I just face myself and just feel where I am.”
