Chelsea must break the bank to complete their capture of FC Basle winger Mohamed Salah. The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea's pursuit of Salah will end up costing the club £20million.

Liverpool increased their offer for Salah to £18.5m late last week when they became aware of Chelsea's interest, with £13.5m due to be paid as an straight down-payment and £5m in bonuses.

But Chelsea, flush with £37m from agreeing to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United, were able to gazump the Merseysiders again, agreeing to go to £20 million.
