If the transfer fee is over £100m...Former Crystal Palace forward hints at Mohamed Salah exit Transfers

Last summer, Egyptian international Mohamed Salah reportedly received a huge offer from Saudi Arabia. Liverpool categorically rejected the offer at the time and are aiming to sign a new deal with the Egyptian King this summer.

However, interest from Middle Eastern clubs has not waned and there is no denying that big offers could come in this summer. 

Furthermore, there is also the option of landing the player on a free transfer at the end of his contract, which could lead to a flurry of departures for the player, depending on the circumstances.

Former Ireland international Clinton Morrison, who played for Crystal Palace and other clubs during his playing days, has suggested that the Egypt international could leave the club and that if the transfer fee were to exceed £100 million, a replacement would be available.

“No Liverpool fan or the new manager coming in would want to lose Salah. His numbers playing from the right-hand side are fantastic. His numbers are ridiculous.”

“Will they be able to get a player who can replicate what Salah can do? But he is getting to that age where if you get over £100m for him, I can see him leaving this summer.”

Although he has lost some of the speed of his prime, his chance-making and decision-making rate in front of goal is second to none.

What decisions will the striker, who has made his mark on the active legends with 211 goals and 89 assists in 349 games at Anfield since joining from AS Roma, make in the final stages of his career…?
