Roma agree Salah loan deal

24 January 2015, 16:04

Milan - Roma have agreed terms with Chelsea for the transfer of midfielder Mohamed Salah to the Serie A club, according to reports in Italy on Saturday.

The 22-year-old Salah, known as the "Egyptian Messi", will sign a six-month loan deal worth 500,000 euros to Chelsea, various local media suggest.

Roma are also said to have the option of tying the rarely-used Chelsea forward at the end of the current campaign to a four-year deal that would see the Premier League giants recoup up to 18 million euros.

Roma, who sit second in Serie A five points behind leaders and champions Juventus ahead of Sunday's trip to Fiorentina, have yet to issue any statement regarding the reports.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said last week Salah would be replaced in the event of his departure from Stamford Bridge, re-opening the possibility that he could relaunch his pursuit of Fiorentina forward Juan Cuadrado.

Chelsea and Fiorentina reportedly held talks over the transfer of the Colombian international last week although Chelsea's reported offer of 27m euros ($31million) was well short of matching Cuadrado's buy-out clause of 35m.

On Thursday, La Viola coach Vincenzo Montella reiterated his desire to hold on to the influential Colombian by declaring Cuadrado "will not be leaving the club".
