Fiorentina are close to resolving their dispute with Chelsea over the future of rebel Mohamed Salah. The Italian side were furious after Salah refused to rejoin them on a season-long loan after they’d paid Chelsea £700,000. But the Blues will repay the sum and will send another player on loan there instead.
