FIORENTINA co-owner Andrea Della Valle has warned rivals Roma that Mohamed Salah is contracted to the Florence club.

The contractual ownership of the Egyptian forward has become a complicated matter this summer, with the Viola embroiled in a bitter battle with the player and his agent.

Fiorentina are looking to secure Salah on a permanent basis after last season’s impressive loan from Chelsea, but he refused to turn up to training and his agent said he would not be returning to the Artemio Franchi.

Della Valle had already claimed that “lawyers will solve” the debate about who owns Salah’s rights following confirmation from the Serie A side that they would be suing the 24-year-old for breach of contract.

Jose Mourinho has stated there’s no way Salah is staying at Stamford Bridge and Roma have emerged as the frontrunners to sign him, though Della Valle was keen to stress he’s still a Fiorentina player.
