Extent of Al-Ittihad’s bid to challenge Liverpool’s determination in Mo Salah’s transfer situation is becoming evident

Liverpool might face a challenge to retain star player Mo Salah, as Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad is reportedly preparing a substantial £129 million offer for the Egyptian forward.

Salah, who joined Liverpool from Roma in 2017, has become a beloved figure at Anfield, amassing an impressive record of 187 goals in 307 games.

His contributions have helped the club secure titles like the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Club World Cup, and Champions League.

The 31-year-old’s potential departure could pose a significant decision for Liverpool and their fans.

Despite signing a contract extension in the previous summer, Mo Salah’s current deal with Liverpool is set to expire in less than two years, with its end date in the summer of 2025.

The recent trend of players moving from top European leagues to Saudi Arabia has been noticeable, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Al Nassr from Manchester United last year serving as a notable example.

Al Ittihad is keen on acquiring Salah’s services for the Saudi Pro League, and details about the package they are planning to offer Liverpool in order to secure the transfer of the highly regarded Egyptian player have now come to light.

According to CBS Sports, a package totalling £129m is being prepared by the Saudi Arabian side to present to Liverpool for Salah’s services.

This is comprised of £85m in an initial payment, with an extra additional £44m in bonuses on offer to Liverpool.

However, the Anfield club’s stance is said to remain as it was surrounding Salah and have no intention of losing the attacker, especially with the Premier League season now under way and only a few days remaining of the summer transfer window, with the deadline coming at 11pm on Friday.

And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no intention of letting Salah leave Anfield, saying recently: “Mo Salah is a Liverpool player and essential for everything we do. If there would be something [an offer], 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.”
