Saudi Al-Ittihad Club to put forward most expensive offer in history for Mohamed Salah

The Saudi Al-Ittihad Club continues pressuring Egyptian football superstar Mohamed Salah to sign a contract with them, and is reportedly willing to offer up a whopping 200 million pounds sterling, breaking world records in order to reel in Salah.

According to reports, a delegation from the Saudi club headed to London in order to negotiate with the Liverpool FC club, days before the closure of the summer transfer market which ends on Thursday in Saudi Arabia.

If the Saudi club succeeds in convincing Liverpool, it will make Salah the most most expensive star in the history of football.


Salah wants the Reds

According to the English newspaper “The Daily Mail”, Salah told Liverpool players that he wanted to stay with the Reds, yet the Al-Ittihad Club refuses to give up despite his insistence.

The Egyptian legend scored a goal against Aston Villa in a match that ended (3-0) on Sunday, in the fourth round of the English Premier League.

Salah, 31, joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017, coming from Rome.

The Al-Ittihad Club will participate in the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup, which will be held in Saudi Arabia in December.


‘Not for sale’

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp once more stepped into the ongoing controversy over Mohamed Salah’s transfer to a Saudi club to stress that Salah is not up for sale.

Klopp said in the press conference before facing Newcastle in the English Premier League that “there is nothing to talk about from our point of view” regarding reported interest in Salah from the Saudi football league.

“If there was something, the answer would be ‘no’,” he added.

“What makes it impossible to deal with is our transfer window closes and they stay open. Then we play until Jan 1 and this is our squad, we have that problem.”
