Revealed: Liverpool and Mohamed Salah reached a £62 million deal
When Mohamed Salah signed a new deal in the summer, he became the highest-paid player for Liverpool so far.
The £62 million deal between Salah and Liverpool
The Egyptian superstar put an end to months of rumors about his future when he signed a three-year contract. It is a contract that would last until the summer of 2025. Even with Salah’s rough start to the season, it is estimated that the agreement is worth close to £400,000 per week when bonuses are taken into consideration.
That amounts to a deal approved by Fenway Sports Group that is close to £62 million when taken as a whole over the course of the contract. The Salah deal may end up being one of the most important of the American owners’ final actions at Anfield. It is because they later made it known they are open to full takeover approaches.
A deal just in time?
The previous contract expiration has put anxiousness among the fans. It seemed probable that the Liverpool star might just consider a move at one point. However, Salah had a good negotiation position. Thanks to his outstanding 2021–22 season, during which he scored 31 goals and helped the team win two out of an improbable Quadruple
Salah claimed that his request for £500,000 per week to stay at Anfield was not “crazy” in light of his accomplishments. The board and the forward’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, eventually came to an agreement after FSG maintained its position.
Salah’s performance has been inconsistent both before and after the summer break after his February return from an emotionally and physically taxing African Cup of Nations campaign.
However, he was brilliant in the six weeks leading up to the World Cup. Thus, in his 21 games this season across all competitions, he has produced 14 goals and five assists. The Reds fans are hopeful about the Egyptian king to produce ample goals post-World Cup.
