Fiorentina could ask Chelsea FC for a 3m payment after the Mohamed Salah loan was cut short at the Italian club.

The Egyptian international arrived in January at Florence as part of the Juan Guillermo Cuadrado to Chelsea FC deal and has been hugely impressive for Fiorentina, since then.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Salaha s original contract gave Fiorentina an option to purchase the player for a 18m by December 31, but, the agent of the player said that the player will be staying in Italy, but, not in Florence.

The transfer saga then took an ugly turn with Fiorentina releasing a statement threatening legal action against the Egyptian international, which prompted an acerbic response from Salaha s agent.

Salah reportedly had an agreement that allowed him to turn down an extension of his contract with Fiorentina, but that was not part of the original contract itself.

Moreover, that agreement stipulated that the player had to provide Fiorentina with an answer by June 30, which Salah failed to do in spite of the cluba s repeated probing.

According to Sport Mediaset, Fiorentina have given up on getting Salah to stay, but do want some sort of remuneration.

They have therefore asked Chelsea FC for the original a 1m back plus another a 3m as a a prizea for making the player more valuable.
