Mohamed Salah has confirmed he is moving to AS Roma this summer via his Twitter account, tweeting ‘done’ as well as changing his bio so that it details that he plays for the Serie A club.
Much has been made of late about the Egypt international’s future, with it being said that Fiorentina wanted to retain his services for another campaign, as well as Roma being desperate to take him on loan.
It appears now though that it’s the latter club who have been successful, with Salah’s most recent post to social media having whipped fans into a frenzy.

Since signing for Chelsea in 2014 the former FC Basel man has struggled to impress Jose Mourinho, despite the obvious flair he has when in the final third of the pitch.
In January he joined Fiorentina as part of the deal that saw the Blues purchase Juan Cuadrado, and his performances for La Viola offered hope that his career in west London wasn’t beyond salvaging.
No Salah chance
However, at the very least it appears that Mourinho isn’t ready to use him in his squad this summer, with the Special One facing the prospect of facing enhanced competition as he seeks to win a second Premier League title.
As a consequence Salah will follow in the footsteps of Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny in spending at least a season at the Stadio Olimpico, although nothing has yet been officially confirmed.
Rudi Garcia’s men are vying for their own trophy having been bested last term by Juventus, and with Edin Dzeko soon to be announced as their next permanent signing, the Giallorossi are looking strong.
If Salah impresses there it could be that he’s transferred permanently, although if that happens certain Blues fans will no doubt bemoan the fact that he wasn’t given a fair shake at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans, what do you think? Should Salah be recalled depending how his loan spell with Roma goes? Let us know in the comments box below.
