Salah’s pay demands have been published, as the Liverpool star seeks parity with two Manchester City players.
The alleged salary that Mohamed Salah is seeking to sign a new Liverpool deal have been revealed.
With two world-class goal contributions against Manchester City on Sunday, Mohamed Salah offered another powerful reminder of his value to Liverpool, but the Reds are still in talks with the player’s representation over a new contract and have yet to prove they would fulfill his expectations.
Salah has clearly established himself as one of the top players in the world throughout his time at Anfield, and he has started the season on a high note with nine goals and three assists in only nine appearances.
Salah has 134 goals and 50 assists in his 212 appearances for Liverpool since signing from Roma in 2017, and regardless of what happens with his future, he will go down as a Liverpool great.
However, the Egyptian’s contract expires in 2023, and no deal has been reached despite Liverpool signing new contracts with Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho, and Trent Alexander-Arnold since July.
After turning 29 in the summer, the Reds must determine whether their two-time Player of the Year is worthy of a new contract, but there is widespread consensus outside the club that he is deserving of a compensation package that reflects his status as a world-class difference-maker.
Salah is reportedly seeking earnings of between £300,000 and £380,000 to sign a new contract with Liverpool and commit what are expected to be his final peak years to the club, considering that he would almost certainly stay until June 2025, when he would be 34 years old.
Salah, along with Thiago Alcantra and Virgil van Dijk, is reported to be Liverpool’s joint-second highest-paid player on £200,000 per week after signing a new contract in the summer.
However, according to Spotrac, there are another 16 players in the Premier League who are paid more than Salah, seven of them are Manchester United players, with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the rankings on earnings of nearly half a million pounds per week.
Salah’s lowest wage demand, £300,000 per week, would still put him in a tie for seventh place with Manchester City’s Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling.
Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku, United quartet Raphael Varane, if he accepted to a new contract worth that much. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
