Liverpool has been informed that Mohamed Salah will eventually force through a “big-money move” due to persistent rumors linking him to Al-Ittihad.
Since moving to Liverpool from Roma in 2017, Salah has become a Liverpool legend, amassing 187 goals and numerous awards, including the Premier League and Champions League. The 31-year-old is still bound to Anfield until 2025, but Al-Ittihad is now showing interest in him. According to reports, the Saudi Arabian club intends to make a bid of €150 million (£129 million/$162 million) for Salah before the English summer transfer market closes on Friday. Jermaine Pennant, a former Liverpool winger, is optimistic that Salah would stay put for the 2022–23 season but believes it is certain that Salah will leave before his contract expires.
“For me, it’s not about if, it’s about when, because eventually he will go,” Pennant said to bitcoincasinos.com. “I don’t believe Liverpool will let him go this season, but like Harry Kane, he might wait until his contract is up before making a high-paying move, perhaps to Saudi Arabia. If he does leave, it will probably be during the following season or the one after, but losing him now, before the transfer window closes, would be disastrous for Liverpool. It would be disastrous if the club allowed him to leave during this window. It’s the same as selling Harry Kane to Tottenham; they just lost 30 goals by default. Liverpool would lose a lot of that if they did that.
Salah’s departure this summer has already been categorically ruled out by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp because the Egyptian is still “essential” to his plans.
This month, he told reporters, “There’s nothing to talk about from our point of view. “Mo Salah plays for Liverpool. Obviously necessary for what we do. Nothing is present. If something existed, the response would be “no.”
