Mo Salah Wants Liverpool to Give Him £500,000 Per Week Deal
Mohamed Salah has demanded £500,000 a week to become the last Liverpool star to commit his long-term future to the club.
Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp earlier on had confirmed that the club is in talks to extend Mohamed Salah’s contract which has less than two years left to run. And, as a result, the Egyptian has demanded a £500,000 per week deal to commit his long-term future at the club.
Salah is already one of the highest earners at Anfield and a new deal would make him the best-paid player in the club’s history eclipsing Virgil van Dijk’s new £220,000 a week contract.
However, Klopp is anxious for the 29-yar-old to follow the likes of Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson in committing to the Anfield club.
He said, “Mo is obviously in a really, really good moment football-wise, mood-wise. How he behaves from the first day he came back has been absolutely great”.
“So, we’re all adults, we’re all professionals. There are talks and there are more talks and when there is a final decision, we will tell you. Until then, it is only important how the parties work together in these things”.
On Tuesday, captain Jordan Henderson ended speculation surrounding his future. He signed a new long-term contract with the Reds.
However, reports claimed at the start of the summer that the 31-year-old was frustrated that an agreement over a new contract was not reached. Regardless, the midfielder has now penned a new three-year contract at the club with an option for a fourth.
Additionally, Henderson has joined the likes for Van Dijk, Fabinho, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold-who was the first to pen the new deal-in committing to Anfield this summer via the long-term contracts.
