Mohamed Salah, the biggest thing to land in Rome since The Beatles.

Mohamed Salah, taker of most anticipated medical exam since Julius Caesar's autopsy.

Presumably, he passed it.  Though if other recent medicals are any indication, maybe it involved just a suit fitting.  Can't be in Italy without a properly fitted suit, after all.

Gianluca Di Marzio is also reporting on the completion of the Salah medical, but reminds us that there is still plenty of potential left for drama in this transfer saga.

The player has just left the Villa Stuart Medical Centre and is now on his way to join up with the squad at their Trigoria training base.The Giallorossi have an agreement with Salah's parent club Chelsea but are awaiting FIFA clearance to conclude the deal.

Now we're waiting for FIFA clearance, too, not just the blessings of Fiorentina?  Or are these one and the same?  Maybe FIFA are hoping to cash-in on his popularity and convince him to run for president?
