Salah will join Chelsea for pre-season – agent

The Egyptian has rejected a return to Fiorentina this summer and his representative Ramy Abbas insists the winger will train with the Blues until his future is decided

Mohamed Salah will join up with the rest of the Chelsea squad for the start of pre-season as his public dispute with Fiorentina rumbles on.

The Egyptian has opted against returning on loan to Florence, where he spent the second half of last season and notched six goals and three assists in 16 Serie A appearances.

Chelsea and Fiorentina originally agreed an 18-month loan deal for Salah as part of Juan Cuadrado’s January move to Stamford Bridge.

However, the player retained the power to reject a return to the Stadio Artemio Franchi this summer and Inter have since entered the race to sign Salah. 

Fiorentina say they are considering legal action over the player’s refusal to rejoin them, while his agent Ramy Abbas revealed his client will meet up with the rest of the Chelsea squad for the first day of pre-season training on Thursday.

“The player will go to the training camp with Chelsea,” Abbas told Sky Sport Italy.

“The English club meet up again officially on Thursday in London, and Salah will be there with them.”
