Liverpool have firmly rejected a staggering £150 million offer for their star forward, Mohamed Salah, from Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Ittihad.
The bid, which could have seen Salah end his stay at Anfield after six years, included additional performance-related bonuses.
Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp reiterated the club’s unwavering stance on Salah’s future, stating: “The position remains the same. Absolutely no doubt about that. That’s how it is. Nothing else to say.”
Klopp’s statement leaves no room for ambiguity regarding the club’s intention to retain Salah.
Liverpool has consistently maintained that Salah, a key figure in their squad since his arrival from Roma in 2017, is unavailable for transfer.
Last summer, Salah inked a new three-year contract, further solidifying his commitment to the Anfield club.
Despite the Premier League’s transfer window shutting at 11 pm on Friday, Saudi Pro League clubs can continue their recruitment efforts until September 20.
Al-Ittihad, in their determined pursuit of Salah, have offered the Egyptian international a jaw-dropping £1.5 million weekly wage, seemingly aimed at testing his loyalty to Liverpool.
Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, had previously dismissed any speculation about his client’s departure to Saudi Arabia, emphasizing his unwavering commitment to Liverpool.
In early August, Issa stated on social media, “Mohamed remains committed to Liverpool. We wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer if we considered leaving Liverpool this year.”
The rejection of Al-Ittihad’s monumental bid underscores Liverpool’s resolve to retain one of the Premier League’s most prolific forwards.
The club’s firm stance mirrors Salah’s own commitment to the Merseyside outfit, leaving no room for doubt regarding his future at Anfield.
