Al-Ittihad’s courtship with Mohamed Salah is far from over! The Saudi Arabian football champions have once again increased their offer for the Liverpool star. As the British “iNews” reports, Al-Ittihad is offering Liverpool FC 250 million pounds (292.23 million euros). The “Reds” are LASK’s opponents in the Europa League. According to the tabloid “The Sun”, the club is offering 215 million pounds (251.32 million euros).
Anyhow: Paris Saint-Germain paid the record sum of 222 million euros to FC Barcelona for Neymar in the summer of 2017, which is clearly exceeded in both cases.
According to the “Sun”, a delegation from Saudi Arabia is said to have left for England on Monday. “iNews” reported that sources at least believe that Salah wants to listen to the offer. His contract with the Reds is still valid for almost two years and he has been playing at Liverpool since the summer of 2017.
According to continuous media reports, on Friday itself Liverpool FC rejected an offer of 150 million pounds (175.34 million euros). It was said that the Reds had given final rejection to the club. The striker is not for sale. Earlier, coach Jurgen Klopp had once again ruled out a change for Salah in a press conference. “Our attitude is the same,” Klopp said. “There’s absolutely no doubt about it.”
The attacker (31) is considered one of the most important performers at Anfield. Only last year he had signed a new three-year contract. In early August, Salah’s agent Rami Abbas Issa insisted that his client had no intention of leaving the club. The transition period in Saudi Arabia will not end until 11:59 pm this Thursday. It was previously revealed that Al-Ittihad are very interested in David Alaba. But according to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, the transfer will not go through. The OFB star feels at home in Madrid and hence will remain at Real Madrid.
