Al-Ittihad prepared to offer €150 million package for Mohamed Salah

Al-Ittihad are ready to make a €150 million offer to entice Liverpool and make Mohamed Salah one of the highest-paid players.

According to James Benge of CBS Sports, Al-Ittihad are prepared to put €150 million on the table to convince Liverpool to sell Mohamed Salah. They are also ready to offer the 31-year-old Liverpool star a salary comparable to that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

Liverpool are still hanging on uncertain terms regarding their leading players, as the Saudi links refuse to go away. Al-Ittihad have been persistent about Mohamed Salah so late in the window, which makes the task of finding a suitable replacement difficult for the Merseysiders.

Jurgen Klopp has refused to entertain any offers for the Egyptian winger, as Liverpool might block any approaches for Salah. So far, media reporting have suggested the Saudi Pro League side want the 31-year-old Liverpool star as their marquee signing and are willing to pay him a salary comparable to Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

It will make him one of the highest-paid players in the league, as Al-Ittihad are confident about sealing a move. Klopp has faced countless questions regarding Salah’s future, as he said the winger was not for sale under any conditions.

Klopp said, “Mo Salah is a Liverpool player and essential for everything we do. If there would be something, the answer would be no. My life philosophy is I think about a problem when I have it, and there is absolutely nothing at the moment.”

James Benge of CBS Sports reports that Al-Ittihad are now willing to test Liverpool’s resolve with a €150 million offer. The deal will guarantee the Merseysiders €100 million, with €50 million in performance-related bonuses, including a few difficult ones.

It seems like a sensational offer for the 31-year-old Liverpool star, as they could re-invest that money in this window or the next. However, the Reds are in no mood to escalate this matter and may keep the Egyptian.

There were reports of Liverpool considering a few replacement options, including Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix. Jarrod Bowen also features on that list, but with the time left in this window, these deals would prove costly and generally difficult.

For now, Liverpool are holding on to their stance that Salah is not for sale. Things will depend on the offer Al-Ittihad lodge in the coming days, and then the club might think over their next step.
