Queens Park Rangers reportedly have interest in taking Mohamed Salah on loan for the remainder of the 2014/15 season. While Salah has struggled for minutes since joining the Blues, it's hard to imagine he wouldn't be able to get on the pitch for Harry Redknapp's side, and finally get a chance to really showcase what he can do in the Premier League.

Salah has seemed to be in-demand since the January window opened, but as before, Chelsea probably aren't all that motivated to send him away without reinforcing. While the Egyptian has struggled for minutes this season, a single injury to one of our top four attacking midfielders would leave him playing an important role with a team expecting to compete on four fronts. Shipping Salah out on loan makes very little sense for the Blues, unless they're planning to enter into the market in order to buy a replacement, or recall another option such as Victor Moses form Stoke.

Regardless of whether or not it made sense though, I'd be opposed to loaning Salah to QPR on general principle alone. Anything that decreases their chance of being relegated should be avoided at all costs, as far as I'm concerned.
