Former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah will now feature for Roma in the coming season on loan.
The Premiership outfit announced on Thursday that Salah has completed the process of a season-long loan for his move to the Italian Serie A outfit.
“Chelsea Football Club has agreed terms with AS Roma for the season-long loan of Mohamed Salah,” Chelsea said in a statement.
“The winger will spend the 2015-16 campaign on loan at the Stadio Olimpico and the agreement includes an option to purchase at any point during the season.”
The clubs have discussed a £1.4 million loan fee with a buy-out figure of £16 million.
Salah: What Went Wrong At Stamford Bridge
Salah was the first Egyptian to feature for the Blues in Barclay’s Premier League. Previously he played for Basle.
At Chelsea, the Egyptian winger starved for first eleven football. The youngster was a misfit in a star-studded Chelsea team.
He scored twice in 19 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Salah struck form in the second half of the season, after moving on to play for Fiorentina in Italy on loan. The Egyptian notched up nine goals in 26 games.
Salah’s Reaction And Future In Roma
Salah now has the option to switch his move permanent at Roma.
The Serie A outfit feels the 23-year-old is one of the world’s best wingers currently. The club website described Salah as the “best Egyptian player in the world right now.”
The Egyptian received a hero’s welcome in the eternal city of Rome and feels his new side can snatch the title from Juventus’ clutches.
“I think everybody here has ambition and everybody wants to win the title. That would be good for us and very good for the fans. Everybody will do their best to make the fans happy,” Salah told fans on Roma’s website.
