Liverpool fans are starting to get a little nervous as Mohamed Salah and the Reds struggle to agree a new deal.
According to Robbie Fowler, the ball is in the Egyptian’s court because the Guardian believe the delay is due to salary demands.
Salah will become a free agent in June 2023. So unless Liverpool get this sorted out soon, they may have to sell their number 11 this summer.
If not, they risk losing him next year for nothing.
Well, Pipe Sierra – the Colombian journalist who broke the news about Liverpool Hijacking Tottenham’s Luis Diaz deal – has provided an update.
What’s the matter?
Well, things are still not looking good for those who want Salah to stay at Liverpool.
According to Sierra, the 29-year-old is charging more than £300,000 a week and wants a four-year deal with an option for a further year.
However, negotiations in January and February were unproductive despite Salah wanting to stay at Anfield.
Sierra tells The Anfield Talk: “Salah is asking for a wage of over £300,000 a week but not crazy money. He wants four more years with an option for a further year, but talks in January and February were not productive. I can say that Salah wants to stay because he loves Liverpool.”
In that sense, it now seems like the ball is in Liverpool’s pitch as Salah has made his demands clear.
Mohamed Salah is not unfair to Liverpool
In our view, Salah’s demands are not unreasonable and Liverpool should have no problem meeting them.
Only today Bruno Fernandes signed a new contract with Manchester United, which should be worthwhile £240,000 per week.
That deal was struck fairly quickly and with Salah being a vastly superior player paying him just over £300,000 a week shouldn’t be seen as an outrageous demand.
To put it simply, the ex-Chelsea man is irreplaceable and arguably the best player in the world right now.
That’s why he deserves a raise. In our opinion, Salah could actually ask for a lot more considering how Cristiano Ronaldo earns £510,000 per week at Old Trafford.
Keep an eye on this saga as more talks await.
