SALAH: Spartak Moscow boss willing to beg to try and sign him next month!

Mohamed Salah is a Chelsea player who finds himself on the fringes of the first team. But for Cup games so far this season, Salah has hardly featured at all. His old boss at Basel Murat Yakin has stated that he wants to sign him for new club Spartak Moscow.
Mohamed Salah thrived in Basel and became a thorn in Chelsea side over a few seasons running, playing with confidence and scoring goals. His time at Chelsea couldn't be more different as he has struggled to come to terms with the Premier League and with the competition within our squad.
Speaking recently, Yakin has openly admitted he has instructed his club to try and sign Salah next month.
“I want to sign both Salah and Fabian Frei (still at Basel). I know both players well.
I know the economic situation in Russia is not the best, but the club can afford both players’ wages.
The club president promised a surprise in the upcoming transfer market; I spoke with him about both Salah and Frei and I hope it will happen, that’d be my Christmas present.
I’ll do whatever it takes to get Salah in the team, even if I have to beg for it.”
I expect Salah to be the one player that Jose would consider selling in the window if the player asks to leave due to a lack of football.
It seems 100% certain that a bid from Spartak will arrive on Mourinho's desk as early as next week and you would have to imagine that Salah would jump at the chance of playing for Yakin once again.
The lure of regular first team football could be too much for Salah to refuse!
