Mohamed Salah transfer news: Saudi delegation arrives in London to propose $252,000,000 offer to Liverpool after $189 million refused

Al-Ittihad started their race for Mohamed Salah when they first offered a salary worth £180 million for a two-year contract, while Liverpool was promised a transfer fee of £60 million. A contract that met instant resistance from Liverpool has been revised twice to lure Mo Salah out of Liverpool.

From the onset, Anfield’s position has remained the same: they do not want to part with Mo Salah. Salah, who is also committed to the Liverpool project, has also deflected Saudi’s pull. Despite the resistance, Al Ittihad remains unflinching in pursuing Mo Salah, and they have now launched yet another bid for the Egyptian talisman.

Mo Salah remains the subject of intense transfer speculation. Al Hilal had previously launched a ‘ridiculous’ offer for the player, and they have shown the tenacity not to stop till they get the player. The previous offer stood at £150 million ($190 million), while they are willing to pay Salah £1.5 million per week.

However, Jurgen Klopp maintains that “the position remains the same, absolutely. No doubt about that. We cannot (sell Salah). That’s how it is. Nothing else to say.”

From the start, Liverpool’s position has been clear: they do not wish to sell Mohamed Salah. The player himself has also expressed his desire to stay, as evidenced by his sterling performance against Aston Villa last week.

The Saudi transfer window closes on Thursday, and they have launched another offer for Mohamed Salah. According to, a Saudi Arabian delegation is currently in London, making a renewed effort to secure the signature of Mohamed Salah. They plan to submit a substantial bid of $252 million (£200 million/€234 million) for his services.

It is uncertain whether or not Liverpool will now consider this eye-watering offer and let Mohamed Salah go.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson, while talking to SkySports, advised Liverpool to take the deal and cash in big on Salah.

“They sell (Salah) for £200m ($252m), and then in January, see if they can get Saka from Arsenal for £150m ($189m),” he told Sky Sports. “One person is 31, and if I can get £200m, then who’s the next one in line?

“Who will be the next big thing on the right wing? Definitely Saka. He is the best right winger about after Salah. If you were Liverpool, you are trading someone older for someone young, and they can go and rock the boat at Arsenal.”

Liverpool already refused Al-Ittihad’s $189 million bid for Mohamed Salah

Liverpool has turned down a significant offer of $189 million (£150 million/€176 million) from Al Ittihad for Mohamed Salah. The Reds are firm in their stance of not allowing Salah to depart, especially when they cannot secure a replacement in a timely manner.

There was an initial substantial bid for Mo Salah before this offer. According to the Sun, the initial offer stood at £150 million, which included a comprehensive package: a five-year contract featuring a substantial basic salary of nearly £100 million.

Additionally, the proposal contained provisions for a private jet or unlimited plane tickets for the player’s family. Notably, there’s an opportunity for the player to become an ambassador for promoting tourism and investments in Saudi Arabia, which further augments the player’s overall compensation.

However, it is not yet certain that these proposals are still on the table since the Saudi offers have been severally revised.
