Liverpool send pointed Mohamed Salah reminder amid 215m Saudi Arabia transfer talk
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has been heavily linked with a big-money move to Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad.
The Egyptian forward is widely regard as the most popular footballer in the Middle East and would become the face of the Saudi Pro League were he to join. Liverpool are desperate to keep him at Anfield, particularly given they would not be able to sign a replacement until January, and have already rejected a 150m offer.
However, a world-record bid could prove particularly difficult to reject, given Salah is now 31 and his current contract is due to expire in 2025. Al-Ittihad have made one final attempt to try and sign Salah before the Saudi window closes on September 7.
According to The Sun, they have made a staggering 215m bid for Salah after flying into the UK for talks with Liverpool. The report states that the bid is made up of an initial 170m plus an additional 45m in add-ons, while Salah could earn as much as 2.45m a week.
