Fiorentina caretaker coach Vincenzo Guerini has claimed the Viola have made Egypt international winger Mohamed Salah an “insane offer” to extend the 23-year-old’s loan spell at the Artemio Franchi from Chelsea.
Salah is currently considering his future, after scoring six times and setting up another three in his 16 appearances for the Italian Serie A side last season.
Guerini said at a club function: “I tell the fans that the club has made an insane offer to Salah.
“If any player, not just Salah, turned down a proposal like that, then it’s best he doesn’t stay at Fiorentina. However, I think Salah will accept.
“He made a huge impact with us, so it’s normal that he should receive calls from elsewhere.
“He wants to earn more, but Fiorentina made a truly important proposal.”
