Liverpool have moved to strongly dismiss speculation that Mohamed Salah could be sold amid fresh reports of interest from Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad.
It has been claimed Al Ittihad are preparing a huge offer for the Egyptian forward, including wages that would exceed Cristiano Ronaldo’s earnings at fellow Saudi side Al Nassr.
However, Liverpool insist they have received no approach for Salah and have no intention of selling their star attacker in the final days of the transfer window.
Salah signed improved terms with Liverpool just last summer, a deal running until 2025 that made him the club’s highest paid player ever.
His agent Ramy Abbas Issa recently rubbished links to Saudi clubs, saying “If we considered leaving this year, we wouldn’t have renewed last summer. Mohamed remains committed to Liverpool.”
Rather than player departures, Liverpool’s focus is on potential incoming transfers before the window closes.
Manager Jurgen Klopp said last week: “The window is open and until then anything can happen. Incoming, there is still time, so let’s have a look.”
The emphatic dismissal of Salah exit talk underlines Liverpool’s determination to keep their Egyptian king beyond the summer window, with rumors of a Saudi switch forcefully rejected.
