    Hi all,
    I think it is a very good move for salad who make egyptians all proud.
    But it will be very difficult to salad to pretend to don’t be on the bench.
    In the middle you have hazard, shurle, ramires, willian, lampard, oscar,may be diego costa from athelttco madrid , from zenith , in the attack you have etoo ba torres may be hulk if the transfer goes in the good direction.
    I think if he plays in the middle it will be very difficult . His only chance to be on the field is to remplace lampard , or eto’o. Or to ask to be at ashley cole position but he will have to play in a place he don’t like.
    I think he sign for chelsea only for the CV.
