Adrian Mutu will remain at Chelsea after negotiations with Fiorentina have failed to develop.
Fiorentina's bid to sign Chelsea's Romanian forward Adrian Mutu has failed to develop.
Chelsea failed to contact Fiorentina over the proposed transfer and the deal is now dead with both the Italian and English transfer window's now closed.
Mutu's agent, Andrea Pretti told skysports.com: "The possibility of the transfer to Florence is failed. Evidently Chelsea considered it wasn't a negotiation to make, so Mutu will remain at Chelsea."
Meanwhile, Fiorentina have sold their Greek striker Zizis Vryzas to Celta Vigo. The Spanish side have signed Vryzas as a replacement for the recently departed Edu.
Vryzas said of the transfer: "It has been a decision taken with the club's agreement.
"I now have the aim to make good things in Spain and trying to achieve promotion to La Liga with Celta Vigo.
"I'm sorry because I said I wanted to stay, but Fiorentina officials told me they preferred selling me permanently."
With the end of the transfer window looming, Fiorentina signed Juventus forward Fabrizio Miccoli with only minutes to spare.
Miccoli will cost 4.5 million Euros in a joint ownership deal, and is the third deal between the two clubs this summer with Enzo Maresca and Giorgio Chiellini having already moved to Viola from Juventus.
