Liverpool have rejected a lucrative offer of £ 150 million for Salah from Al Ittihad just hours before the Premier League summer transfer market officially closes (23h on September 1).
However, the Saudi Pro League representative has no intention of giving up, planning to increase the amount to 200 million pounds for Salah to see if Liverpool can stand, because this tournament market can still shop until September 20.
According to the Mirror, a record offer for a player with less than 24 months left on his contract and aged 31 like Salah, could be “green lighted” by the investor FSG.
On the contrary, Jurgen Klopp is Hopefully Liverpool owners will stand firm and refuse Ittihad because he cannot bring in a replacement until the winter transfer market (January 2024) opens..
Salah himself is said to not be strongly interested in leaving, but has told friends that a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia would interest him.
Al Ittihad is said to be ready to turn Salah into the highest-paid player in the world, but Klopp hopes the Egyptian striker will stay with him at least until 2024. The German captain accepts losing the number 1 striker in next year in an “inevitable” position.
Klopp once shared about this powerless to hold the pillars because the attractiveness of offers from Saudi Arabia makes them “unable to refuse”.
Fabinho landed at Al Ittihad for £40 million, while captain Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino moved to Al Ettifaq and Al Ahli respectively.
