The last phase of the Transfer Window is always full of surprises and excitement for football fans around the world. One of the biggest stories that has been making headlines is the possible move of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah to Saudi Arabia. The Egyptian forward, who has scored 187 goals in 307 appearances for the Reds, is reportedly a target for Al-Ittihad, the Saudi Pro League champions. They are willing to pay £100m to sign him and offer him a salary of £1.5m a week, making him one of the best-paid players in the world.
However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Salah is not for sale and that he is “one hundred percent” committed to the club. He also said that there has been no official offer for the 31-year-old and that he is “essential” for the team. Liverpool has already lost two key players this summer, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, who joined Al-Ittihad and Al-Ettifaq, respectively. They are unwilling to lose another one, especially their top scorer and most influential player.
Salah has not publicly commented on the rumors, but some sources claim that he is keen to push through the move to Saudi Arabia. He is the most famous Arab player in the world, and a move to the Saudi Pro League would raise his profile even higher in his home region. He also signed a new three-year contract last summer, which made him the highest-paid player in Liverpool’s history. He may feel that he has achieved everything he can at Anfield and that it is time for a new challenge.
The SPL’s transfer window closes on September 7, nearly a week after the Premier League’s deadline on September 1. This means that there is still time for Al-Ittihad to make a move for Salah and try to convince him and Liverpool to agree on a deal. It would be a huge coup for the Saudi club and a massive blow for the English champions. It would also be one of the most shocking transfers in football history.
