Marcelo Salas did not travel along with his teamates to the Ukraine where the Roman squad will play against Shakthar Donetsk on its first game of the Champions League. Salas supposesly has a back injury but sources say that he had a meeting with Real Madrid representatives. Salas was not called for last Fridays game and Eriksson did not call him either for Lazio's upcoming game despite Crespo's absense due to injury. Since Salas has not played in this year's CL, its likly that he would join Real Madrid in the prompt hours because he is eligible to play in the tournament (with Real Madrid) since he has not done so with Lazio, yet.

Other teams interested are Inter and Milan but a tranfer to those teams is unlikely because they are the league's main contenders for a scudetto. Salas' tranfer would be for about $35 US.

Salas has denied everything (they all do) and said that he love to stay in Rome and in Italy for another 2 years.

I hope he goes to Real Madrid.

Hurrah for Paquador!

I hope to see Salas playing,wherever.It's so nice to see such a worldclass player playing on the field.

I hoped that he would play today but...
This fact maybe means that something is going on...

Well I thought that the injurie was fake, and he was left out of the team so that he could still play for Real Madrid if he were transfered.

But the Spanish transfer window is closed and he can't be sold to Madrid till December, by then Morientes would be back so I dont think he will go to Madrid!!

I wouldn't mind if Salas went to Madird though

Salas is going to be wasted in Lazio this season since he is the 4th non EU player
