Chelsea to use Salah as bait

According to reports, Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho is seriously considering the possibility of offering La Liga giants Atletico Madrid the services of Egyptian international Mohamed Salah in a bid to get their hands on France international, Antoine Griezmann.

Salah, who signed from FC Basel, a few years back, has struggled to nail down a regular spot in the Chelsea starting XI and spent the second half of last season on loan with Italian outfit, Fiorentina. And although the player has an option to stay there for another season, Mourinho might use Salah as bait in order to convince At. Madrid into letting go of a player they signed from Real Sociedad last summer.

Griezmann has made a really great start to life under Diego Simeone and even though he is not looking to leave the club just yet, a lucrative offer from the London giants may tempt him into reconsidering his stance.
