Chelsea ready to offer £400,000-a-week to bring Premier League star to the Bridge
Chelsea are ready to offer Mohamed Salah that £400,000-a-week contract that he wants from Liverpool, IcFootballnews has learned
Egypt international Salah, whose current deal at Liverpool runs until the summer of 2023, has consistently expressed his desire to remain at Anfield amid ongoing talks over a new contract.
He has become one of the best players in world football during his stay at Anfield and has also become one of the clubs most iconic players in just a a few years, helping the club to Champions League and Premier League titles
But he has not yet signed a new deal with the Reds and all the big clubs, including the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, have been keeping a close eye on things at Anfield.
But now IcFootballnews have learned that the club are eyeing up a possible move for Salah
The reports claims we have been keen on the Egyptian star ever since he came back to the Premier League a few years ago, but have known they have never had the opportunity to prise him away from Liverpool as he had a massive contract with the Reds.
But now his deal is coming down at Liverpool, and the fact he wants £400,000-a-week, is delaying the contract signing, meaning that we can swoop in and give him the contract he wants
Jamie Carragher recently Liverpool’s owners they will never be forgiven if they allow club legend Mohamed Salah to leave the club.
“Those two players [Salah and Mane] are obviously a big miss and this talk of Salah’s contract will probably intensify even more because when he is not there, you see the effect it has,” Carragher told Sky Sports after Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at Anfield.”As a Liverpool supporter you should be wary that this [Salah’s contract situation] is dragging on. Other big players at Liverpool have signed contracts in the last three or four months, the goalkeeper [Alisson Becker], Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Virgil van Dijk, huge figures in this team.
“Salah wants to be paid as well as any top player in the Premier League or world football, and why shouldn’t he? He deserves that, we’re talking about one of the best players in the world.
“The problem, and the angle Liverpool may be looking at it from, is where Salah would go? The Spanish giants [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are really out of the equation now given the problems they have financially. Would Salah leave and ruin his legacy by going to Manchester City or Manchester United? Probably not, so that’s probably Liverpool’s bargaining chip.
“I would love this deal to be done as quickly as possible. You cannot forget the price Liverpool signed Salah for. It wasn’t as if they went and spent £100million, they did what they are great at and did a brilliant deal. The money they have invested in him already – transfer fee and wages – has been a snip.
“This is not a case of giving the player exactly what he wants, but Liverpool Football Club and the owners, I don’t think they would be forgiven if Salah left this club in the summer or in 18 months’ time.
“He’s a Liverpool legend, one of the greatest players the club has ever had, and it needs to be sorted sooner rather than later.”
