Al-Ittihad preparing £70m offer for Mohamed Salah this summer

Al-Ittihad preparing £70m offer for Mohamed Salah this summer Transfers

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has been a keen acquisition for the Saudis since last summer. Despite receiving a huge offer, the Reds rejected the offer and the Egyptian winger remained at Anfield.

The player, who is under contract until June 2025, has been uncertain about his future and is expected to receive a second offer from the Saudi Professional League.

According to talkSPORT, Al-Ittihad, who also made a bid last summer, are preparing an offer of £70 million for the veteran attacker, who has one year remaining on his contract. This is almost half the amount of the previous offer, but still a lot of money for the soon-to-be 32-year-old.

Al Hilal of the same league are also interested, and the story of the world-class striker, who has scored more than 200 goals in total at Anfield, moving to a Middle Eastern club is no pipe dream.

While reports are circulating that Liverpool want to extend his new contract, the truth is elusive, with news that Michael Edwards plans to allocate the proceeds from Salah’s sale to his budget, with the implication of helping his new manager build his team.

Although his chance-making ability has not diminished, in addition to his still high decision-making rate, his speed and physicality are noticeably declining.

He is increasingly unable to get past opposing left-backs, and with Jurgen Klopp’s departure, it is a logical step in the right direction to break away from the new team.

Will the Saudi Arabian club actually make a move for him, and will Liverpool accept the offer?
