Saudi Arabian Pro League giant Al Ittihad are set to offer £200 million for Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah.
The club are interested in breaking the Neymar transfer fee of £198 million from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
However, Al Ittihad will continue to go after the Egyptian until the end of the Saudi Arabia Pro League transfer window on September 7, 2023.
Talks have been going on for months but have been intensified recently, with the Al Ittihad board staying in France to continue the negotiations with Liverpool.
Liverpool director Mike Gordon insisted the 31-year-old Egyptian is not for sale, and the Al Ittihad board should consider him as a closed case.
Mohamed Salah who scored 30 goals last summer, signed a three-year deal to continue playing football with the Merseyside Reds.
He was made the highest-paid player in the club, with a weekly wage of £350,000.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted he is concerned about the wages offered to players by the Saudi Arabian club and its longer transfer window duration.
The Saudi Arabia Pro League clubs were able to convince the likes of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and Ngolo Kante due to the amount of wages offered.
In addition, Liverpool lost two of their superstars to the Saudi Arabia Pro League. Firstly, Fabinho joined Al Ittihad, and secondly, Jordan Henderson gave up his captaincy to join Al-Ettifaq.
Liverpool staff have been informing agents to give out the names of players that are available in the transfer window, but finding a performer like Salah is very difficult.
Liverpool are in no rush to sell the player, given that he has two more years on his contract.
However, it appeared that the winger was less concerned about the uncertainty of his future as he drove away from the Liverpool training ground on September 1, 2023.
The Liverpool star drove away from the training ground in a blue car as he waved to the Liverpool fans who were waiting to see a glimpse of the super star.
It was revealed that Mohamed Salah is likely to make £150 million in two years if he joins Al Ittihad. Also, the Saudi Arabia Club is ready to offer him a private jet and further lucrative opportunities.
In total, the offer may eclipse Cristiano Ronaldo’s £173 million annual salary, who remains the highest paid player in the Saudi Arabia Pro League after moving from Manchester United.
Due to the fact that he is one of the finest Arab players in the world, Mohamed Salah is likely to own a football club in the Saudi Arabia Pro League in future.
