Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah has finally arrived in Rome to undergo his medical ahead of a season loan move to the Seria A giant Roma.
According to reports from Calciomercato, the Egypt international arrived Rome yesterday to to complete his reported £1.4million loan fee with a buy-out clause of £16million at the end of the season.
Although his decision to move to Roma is still not going down well with Fiorentina who claim the 23 years old star still has a contract of playing with them for the coming season, and they can only give up their stance if compensation is being made to them either by Chelsea or Salah.
Fiorentina general director Andrea Rogg has been quoted by Football-Italia.net saying;
“On Salah our position has not changed: we believe that the player has a contract with Fiorentina and now we will try to find appropriate solutions. We are talking especially with Chelsea, not with Roma, and it is obvious that as long as this transfer goes through, Salah can not play. Roma could be a solution, however, as mentioned, we are still discussing with all Chelsea.”
However, Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas has insisted that Roma must commit to hand Salah a permanent contract next summer if the deal is to go through.
“Sure, after the results of the medical are concluded, they can take one to two days,” Ramy Abbas told KingFut.com.
“Furthermore, Salah will only accept a loan where the club has an obligation to buy him, not an option to buy him.
“Lots and lots of teams were interested in Salah.”
The winger who was loaned out to Fiorentina during the second half of last season made 26 appearances scoring 9 goals for the viola.
