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.
