Chelsea beat Liverpool to Mohamed Salah

LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Chelsea have once again pipped a rival for their targeted player, following the news that Basel star Mohamed Salah is set to join Jose Mourinho’s side.

In the summer transfer window, Mourinho and Chelsea snapped Willian from under the nose of Tottenham, and it is now clear that Salah, who was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, will be heading to Stamford Bridge instead.

Liverpool, it is believed, was very close to signing the Egypt attacker, a player who was their prime target in the January transfer window, but Brendan Rodgers and his crew failed to come to an agreement with Basel.

Salah, it is understood, is expected to join Chelsea this weekend, and his arrival is set to excite the Chelsea fans again, with star player Juan Mata set to join rivals Manchester United.
