Liverpool Rejects Al-Ittihad’s £150 Million Offer for Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah is one of Liverpool’s star players, and he’ll stick around with the Reds this season. Despite receiving a £150 million offer for Salah’s transfer to the Saudi club Al-Ittihad, Liverpool rejected it ahead of Friday’s deadline and made it clear that he’s not for sale. The Egyptian has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia for several weeks now, and it’s believed that Al-Ittihad made a verbal offer to Liverpool. The deal was reportedly worth £100 million up front with a further £50 million in add-ons, but it eventually fell through because the Reds didn’t want to let Salah go. This decision doesn’t come as a huge shocker because his agent Ramy Abbas Issa ruled out a switch to Saudi Arabia last month, saying, “Mohamed remains committed to Liverpool. If we considered leaving Liverpool this year, we wouldn't have renewed the contract last summer." Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp addressed Salah’s future during a press conference on Friday and made it clear that Salah is 100% committed to Liverpool. "The position remains the same. Absolutely no doubt about that. That's how it is. Nothing else to say," explained Klopp. Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in 2017 and went on to become one of their most valuable players, scoring 138 goals in 221 appearances with the Reds and winning the Premier League Golden Boot on three separate occasions.
