Mohamed Salah's agent, Ramy Abbas, has claimed his client is ready to return to Chelsea for pre-season with the Blues after rejecting the chance to stay at Fiorentina on loan for a further season.

The 23-year-old Egyptian winger moved to the west London club in January 2013 after impressing manager Jose Mourinho during his time at Basel.

But after failing to make the impact expected at Stamford Bridge during his first year at the club, the Chelsea manager sent him on loan to Fiorentina on deadline day during the last January transfer window as part of the £23.3m deal that saw Juan Cuadrado move in the opposite direction.

And having replicated his best form in Serie A, scoring six goals in 16 appearances, Fiorentina exercised an option with the Blues to extend the six-month loan deal to the 2015-16 campaign.

But Salah has refused to return to the Stadio Artemio Franchi, with his agent recently claiming the player wants to "play for a club with different moral and professional values".

Having already paid the Blues to have his services next season, the Viola are considering opening legal proceedings.

"The player will go to the training camp with Chelsea. The English club meet up again officially on Thursday in London and Salah will be there with them," Abbas said, as quoted by Standard Sport.

Mourinho will now have the final word over the future of the Egypt international at Stamford Bridge. The Portuguese boss has Cuadrado, Eden Hazard and Willian in his ranks to play in Salah's preferred position.
