Roma’s signing of Mohamed Salah is official, as he joins permanently from Chelsea.
The Egyptian winger joined the Giallorossi last summer on loan, with an obligation to buy for €15m after a set number of appearances.
It was therefore a formality that the transfer would be made permanent, and it has now been officially announced.
“Mohamed Salah has completed a permanent transfer to Italian club Roma,” Chelsea confirmed in a statement.
“The Egyptian winger spent last season on loan at the Serie A side and impressed as they finished third.
“Salah signed for Chelsea from Basel in January 2014 and made his debut in a home game against Newcastle.
“His first goal for the Blues came in our memorable 6-0 win over Arsenal when he completed the scoring, racing on to a Nemanja Matic pass and finishing well.
“After spending the second part of the 2014/15 campaign on loan at Fiorentina, he remained in Italy with Roma the following year.
“Chelsea Football Club thanks Mohamed for his service and wishes him well for the future.”
