Salah sends PSG transfer message after his £500k-a-week wage demands at Liverpool
Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool is up in the air and has been unable to agree on a new contract as he exclusively revealed he was looking to earn half a million pounds a week.
Mohamed Salah, future is up in the air as he has been unable to agree on new terms with the Anfield club as he demands £500,000 a week. He has two years left on his current deal, but Jurgen Klopp is keen to tie him down on a long-term deal.
Salah is already one of the highest earners at the club, on around £200k-a-week, but is looking for a massive pay bump as he continues to be one of the best Premier League players.
Moreover, former Liverpool player Murphy believes PSG might be one of the few clubs that could meet his demands as he enters the final year of his contract.
The pundit also believes he would be the ideal replacement for Kylian Mbappe who is expected to leave as a free agent.
He said, “Mo Salah is not the type of person who is going to start demanding double what anyone else is earning at the football club. I’d be very surprised if that was the case, but never say never”.
“If Mbappe goes next summer, PSG will want to replace Mbappe with a superstar who can score goals. There’s not many better than Salah. I would hope not [that he would want to leave for PSG], it’s very difficult for me to give. . perspective on this because, would I ever leave Liverpool to go PSG? No, because Liverpool is my team”.
“Mo Salah in the past, there have been some rumors about wanting to play in Spain. But if you’re talking about playing in Spain to fulfill a childhood dream, it’s very different to being greedy and money.
“Salah doesn’t seem unhappy, he seems when you watch him play that he’s still full of beans, full of energy, full of appetite and desire. He doesn’t look like a player who’s bored of where he is, who’s lost his desire to be the best. He looks bang at it again. It wouldn’t surprise me if in the next two months that deal [his new Liverpool contract] is done.”
