El Al Ittihad does not resign itself to the rejection of Liverpool for selling to Mohamed Salah, the Saudi club would have presented him a proposal of $230 million dollars, which would make the Egyptian the most expensive signing in history and they would once again hit the table with a checkbook. A few days ago, Jugen Klopp assured that Salah’s march to Saudi Arabia would be a tragedy for football and, sticking to that position, the Reds do not want to leave their star even for all the Saudi money.
As confirmed by The Athletic, Liverpool would have rejected a three-year offer for the Egyptian star of $200 million dollars, which is why the Saudis did not give in either and returned to the charge as only they know how to do it, with more money. Some European sources indicated that Salah would have met with representatives of the Arab club, other versions affirm that from Liverpool they do not want to get rid of the maximum figure of him.
Mohamed Salah is not for sale, repeats Jurgen Klopp
“Mohamed Salah is not for sale”, has been Klopp’s most repeated phrase in recent dayshowever, he has been especially critical of the signings of big names to Saudi Arabia and invited to establish certain rules so that the players do not continue leaving and that Europe continues to be the strong and the center of football.
Salah has a salary of $350 thousand dollars a week and is the highest paid footballer in the history of Liverpool, team where he has won all the trophies, including the UEFA Champions League. However, the price that Al Ittihad is willing to pay would make him the most expensive signing in history, even above the $222 million that PSG paid at the time for Neymar Jr.
The ambition of Al Ittihad
Already Al Ittihad has a player of the stature of Karim Benzema in its ranksand adding him with Mohamed Salah would be something that could not even be achieved in Europe, they also have a world champion like Kanté in their ranks and they want to add Sergio Ramos.
