Liverpool could allow Mohamed Salah to leave the club for £60million this summer after he reportedly demanded £160,000 a week more than Virgil van Dijk to sign a new contract. Salah has enjoyed a sensational career at Anfield but has just one more year remaining on his current deal and has refused to put pen-to-paper on a new one.
The Reds shelled out just £34m to prise Salah away from Roma in 2017. And following a fecund maiden campaign on Merseyside in which the Egypt international bagged an incredible 44 goals and 16 assists in all competitions, he was handed a new contract with improved terms.
Salah has gone on to develop into one of the best players in the world under Jurgen Klopp and has helped his side win the Champions League, the Club World Cup and the Premier League during his time at Anfield. And he has won the top-flight Golden Boot on three occasions.
But Salah’s time at Liverpool could be coming to an end as club and player have reached an impasse in contract negotiations. And, according to The Sun, Liverpool’s owners FSG will weigh up a shock sale if they get an offer in the region of £60m.
Salah earns just shy of the £240k-a-week Van Dijk pockets – but is now demanding weekly wages of £400k, despite previously claiming he doesn’t want “crazy” money to stay at Anfield. Reds chiefs are adamant that they won’t break their pay structure to keep him at the club, however.
