Chelsea lawyers locked in transfer negotiations over Mohamed Salah

La Viola are furious at Mohamed Salah and his representatives after the player snubbed a permanent move to Florence and now, Chelsea are trying to minimise the damage

Following a short term loan spell at Fiorentina from Chelsea last summer, Mohamed Salah was honour bound to join La Viola on a permanent basis from Stamford Bridge. However, after being contacted by the likes of Internazionale and AS Roma, the player seems to have his head in the clouds and is no more interested in playing in Florence.

Knowing that this could result in a big mess, Chelsea lawyers are locked in negotiations with the Italian Serie A side in order to reach some sort of compromise that leaves both parties happy. La Viola are seeking compensation but the player’s agent says that the team’s demands are baseless.

“Fiorentina have no foundation for their demands, even if I know they are talking to Chelsea lawyers,” Remy Abbas told laroma24.it.
