Al-Ittihad has made a world record £215m bid to sign Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah
According to The Sun, Saudi club Al Ittihad has increased its previous bid for Liverpool starlet Mohamed Salah to a world record £215 million ($270 million).
According to the report, Saudi club executives traveled to the United Kingdom in their latest bid to recruit the Egyptian international before the Saudi transfer market closes on Thursday.
Salah will be paid £2.45 million a week, plus a big percentage of jersey sales figures, a £55,000 win bonus, and ambassadorial duties with at least three major Saudi companies for the duration of his contract, according to the source.
Salah has 188 goals in 309 games for Liverpool since signing in 2017, helping the club win the Premier League and the Champions League.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp stated last month that Salah was not for sale and that Liverpool had not received an offer from Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad.
“It’s always difficult to talk about media stories because there’s nothing to talk about from our point of view. We don’t have an offer, Mo Salah is a Liverpool player. Obviously for all the things we do, essential, was, will be. There’s nothing there, if there would be something the answer would be no,” Klopp had said.
The German also stated that Salah, 31, is fully committed to Liverpool after signing a three-year contract deal last year.
Salah signed a new contract with Liverpool last season that would keep him there until the conclusion of the 2024 season, making him the club’s highest-paid player. Salah’s representative had stated on Twitter that he will remain at the club at the moment.
