Mohamed Salah has ‘committed’ to Liverpool amid a transfer link with Saudi Arabia, according to his agent.
According to his agent, Mohamed Salah is “committed” to Liverpool, despite talk regarding a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia.
According to Saudi publication Al Riyadiah, Al-Ittihad made a contact and offered Salah a two-year contract worth £155 million on top of a £52 million transfer fee.
Salah, 31, signed a new three-year contract with the club last summer that runs through June 2025.
“Mohamed remains committed to LFC,” Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas stated on social media.
“If we had planned to leave LFC this year, we would not have renewed our contract last summer.”
Liverpool have already traded midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson to Al-Ittihad and El-Ettifaq this summer, while Roberto Firmino moved to Al-Ahli after his contract at Anfield expired.
Salah has 186 goals in 305 games for Liverpool since arriving from Roma in 2017.
During his time at Anfield, the Egyptian has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Fifa Club World Cup, and Uefa Super Cup.
During his time with Jurgen Klopp’s team, he also won or shared three Premier League Golden Boots and was awarded PFA Player of the Year twice.
Since five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo signed from Manchester United in January, the Saudi Pro League has attracted some of the game’s biggest players.
Current Ballon d’Or winners Karim Benzema and Fabinho, as well as former Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and ex-Celtic winger Jota, have all joined Al-Ittihad, who are managed by Nuno Espirito Santo, who formerly managed Tottenham and Wolves.
Meanwhile, Riyad Mahrez, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Sadio Mane, Rubi Neves, and Allan Saint-Maximin have all relocated to Saudi Arabia.
Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, has stated that the Saudi Pro League’s financial power has “changed the market” for transfers and that elite teams “need to be aware of what is happening,” while Klopp has expressed concern over the transfer window closing late in the Gulf state.
