Salah: FIFA investigating player’s loan deal


The game’s governing body are to look into Mohamed Salah’s move to Fiorentina

The Serie A side claim they were misled about making the player’s move permanent at the end of the season.

The winger joined Fiorentina from Chelsea on loan in January until the end of the season, but when given the offer of extending his stay, he rejected the proposition and joined Serie A rivals Roma.

FIFA are set to examine claims by Fiorentina that there was a clause which gave them the option of signing the Egyptian once his loan spell had expired.

Fiorentina director of football Daniele Prade expressed his shock regarding the whole ordeal.

“Nobody could have imagined what the player had in mind during his six months in Florence.

“I never thought Salah’s mind could have turned that way. I was wrong in saying that I was certain he’d stay with us in January” said Prade.

Chelsea eye Newcastle midfielder

France international Moussa Sissoko is the latest player to be linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge club as the Blues start to think about the January transfer window.

Although Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho identified Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba as his main target, Sissoko, who is worth around £17million, is reported to be another player the Portugese coach admires.

Meanwhile Newcastle are reluctant to lose one of their key players and are thought to be preparing a new deal for Sissoko, which would include a significant pay-rise from his current £35k-a-week deal.

The Magpies may be powerless in stopping the former Toulouse midfielder from leaving, particularly when he has aspirations to play in the Champions League.

“I would notably like to play in the Champions League, which I can’t do at Newcastle. One day or another, my time will come” said Sissoko.
