Chelsea FC have asked the Egyptian Football Association to pay 52 euros to compensate for ’s visa to play in Senegal next month.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) have officially received a fax from English club Chelsea, asking the governing body of football in Egypt to pay 52 euros (491 EGP), according to reports.

This fee is the amount paid by the English club for the Egyptian international’s visa to play in Senegal next month.

Earlier this week, Egypt manager Shawky Gharib revealed Chelsea refused to let Salah take part in a August 30 friendly against Kenya, as the date is not included in FIFA’s match calendar.

Salah was one of the eleven European-based Pharaohs called up by Gharib for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Senegal and Tunisia next month.

Egypt will play their first AFCON qualifying group stage match against Senegal in Dakar on September 5th.
