Liverpool might sell Mohamed Salah next season to make money

Mohamed Salah involved in a controversial moment with Jurgen Klopp during Liverpool 2-2 draw with West Ham on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons after reds 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

Left on the bench for the fixture in the capital, Salah became involved in a heated exchange with Jurgen Klopp as he readied himself to enter the field of play. Darwin Nunez took it upon himself to cool down the Egyptian, who could be seen raising his finger in the direction of the boss as the pair continued to bicker.

Klopp attempted diffused the situation when speaking after the match, insisting he had spoken to Salah about it in the dressing room, only for the forward to claim “There is going to be fire if I speak.”

Liverpool to sign new manager and a lot of changes will made

Salah’s conduct, coupled with his poor form in recent weeks, has left many questioning whether the 31-year-old will still a reds player come the start of next season.

The 2019 Champions League winner has one year remaining on his contract and was the subject of interest from Saudi Arabia last summer, resulting in a bid worth £150million made.

Two years ago, the decision to hand Mohamed Salah the biggest contract of all time at reds taken on the trust and belief in the player himself from the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group. Salah backed himself to continue posting the sorts of numbers that had done as a matter of routine across his previous time on Merseyside and the 54 goals scored since have justified that stance at the time.

The question now then is whether the current malaise is a signal of some wider, irreversible decline or is this a player simply suffering from a rare hamstring issue that has contributed towards him playing just 804 minutes of the last 2,400.

The prospect of a big-money move to Saudi Arabia seemed a more realistic prospect last year and is perhaps being overstate somewhat this time around.
