Inter Milan will move for Mohamed Salah if Chelsea FC reject offers for winger Juan Cuadrado according to reports in Gazetta Dello Sports . .
The Egyptian winger on loan from Chelsea FC impressed in his six-month loan spell at Fiorentina, but, is believed to not be interested in remaining in Florence for another season.
Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Salah has been given the right to decide by Chelsea FC to stay at the Artemio Franchi but departure of Coach Vincenzo Montella has made him decide against staying.
Inter are keen to strike a deal similar to the one they signed with Bayern Munich for Xherdan Shaqiri, with an initial loan move followed by an obligatory purchase, with payment deferred over three years.
Gazzetta dello Sports reports that the fee of such a move could be in the region of a 15-16m, but it is yet to be seen whether Salah would be interested in a move.
While reports suggest that Inter Milan have made Juan Cuadrado their primary transfer target, Salah is thought to be a back up option should a move for the Colombian fail to materialize.
Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho has dismissed any reports of the possible exit of the Colombian winger.
Mourinho said: a Cuadrado is not going anywhere this summer.a
a People dona t know Cuadrado yet, I have seen him many times when we were both in Italy, me at Inter and him at Udinese.a
a Because of that I have a lot of hopes for him for next season. I hope in the Copa America he can regain his self-esteem, his ego and that he has that joy of playing.a
With the Chelsea FC manager keen to keep Cuadrado, Salah could continue his time in Italy with a possible move to Inter Milan.
