Chelsea have been cleared of any wrongdoing in relation to Mohamed Salah's loan switch to Roma. The winger's move was the subject of a complaint from Fiorentina. Salah played for the Florence side in second half of the 2014-15 season, before agreeing a deal to join Roma for the duration of the following campaign.
The latter move prompted Fiorentina to launch a complaint, alleging a breach of contract. The Serie A side said they already had a deal in place for Salah to rejoin them at the end of the original loan spell. However, the decision was understood to have been made by the player himself, which led to the complaint being dismissed.
"The dispute resolution chamber dealt with the dispute opposing the Italian club, ACF Fiorentina, to the player, Mohamed Salah Ghaly, and the English club, Chelsea FC," a Fifa spokesperson said. "The findings of the relevant decision, without grounds, have been communicated to the parties on June 8, 2016.
"The claim of the Italian club was rejected. Since the decision is not yet final and binding, we are not in a position to comment on it any further."
The pacey Egyptian winger joined Chelsea in 2014, but soon fell out of failure under Jose Mourinho, who shipped him out on loan. Salah impressed during his spell at Fiorentina and subsequently scored 14 goals in 34 Serie A appearances for Roma.
It remains to be seen whether he will be brought back to Chelsea full-time under new boss Antonio Conte. The Italian will assess his squad after he has led his country at Euro 2016.
