Mohamed Salah has revealed that he will not be looking to return to parent club Chelsea once his loan spell with Italian club Fiorentina comes to an end, Talksport
The winger, who was signed from Basel in January 2014, has been handed very few first-team opportunities at Chelsea, due mainly due a number of players competing for the same positions including Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian. Overall under Jose Mourinho he has made just 19 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice.
Mourinho had made it clear that Salah was surplus to requirements in Stamford Bridge, and he duly moved to Florence on transfer deadline day in a loan move that helped secure a deal that saw Juan Cuadrado join the Blues for £24.1m. Should he impress for Fiorentina, the agreement could be made permanent in the summer.
And the Egyptian has stated that he has no plans to continue playing for Chelsea following the expiry of his deal with Fiorentina. “At the moment I don’t intend to return to Chelsea,” he said. I want to do well with Fiorentina. I spoke with Mourinho and told him I wanted to leave Chelsea and he was fine. The Italian League is of a high standard.”
Salah is in line to make his debut for his new club when they take on Atalanta on Sunday.
