Liverpool FC management reportedly divided over Mohamed Salah offer


Liverpool FC’s management is reportedly divided over the departure of Mohamed Salah to the Saudi Al-Ittihad club in the current summer transfers.

A report published in the English newspaper “The Sun” said that the Reds’ management was in disagreement over their position on the record £200 million offer of the Jeddah Club to sign on Mohamed Salah.

Some believe that the offered amount cannot be replaced during the coming periods and can be invested well.

Others feel there is no one else who can perform on the level Salah has demonstrated during the English Premier League matches.

Salah wants the Reds

According to the English newspaper “The Daily Mail”, Salah told Liverpool players that he wanted to stay with the Reds, yet the Al-Ittihad Club refuses to give up despite his insistence.

The Egyptian legend scored a goal against Aston Villa in a match that ended (3-0) on Sunday, in the fourth round of the English Premier League.

Salah, 31, joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017, coming from Rome.

The Al-Ittihad Club will participate in the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup, which will be held in Saudi Arabia in December.

‘Not for sale’

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp once more stepped into the ongoing controversy over Mohamed Salah’s transfer to a Saudi club to stress that Salah is not up for sale.

Klopp said in the press conference before facing Newcastle in the English Premier League that “there is nothing to talk about from our point of view” regarding reported interest in Salah from the Saudi football league.

“If there was something, the answer would be ‘no’,” he added.

“What makes it impossible to deal with is our transfer window closes and they stay open. Then we play until Jan 1 and this is our squad, we have that problem.”
