Liverpool are reportedly willing to sanction the exit of Mohamed Salah. They are willing to let him go for a fee of £60 million.
The 30 year old has been locked in negotiations over contract renewal with Reds for months.Although, the two parties are yet to lead to a positive solution. As things stand , Salah is due to become a free agent in 12 months time. He will be able to walk out of the door for nothing if fresh terms cannot be agreed.
LIVERPOOL AND MOHAMED SALAH CONTRACT SITUATION
Prior to the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid,Salah confirmed that he would remain at Anfield for the next season. He told reporters: “I am staying next season for sure.”. However, Liverpool are desperate to avoid losing Salah on a free transfer. They either want him to sign the contract extension or they want to sell him for a fee.
OWNERS NOT READY TO SHATTER WAGE STRUCTURE
According to reports , Liverpol are prepared to entertain offers of £60 million for PFA Player of the year. Although , the owners of Liverpool will not allow Salah to join a direct Premier League rival. The forward currently reportedly earns £240,000 per week on Merseyside. He supposedly wants to earn £400,000 per week to commit to fresh terms. Liverpool are not prepared to shatter their wage structure.
The report also adds the attacker continues to be linked with Barcelona or Real Madrid. The Catalan’s financial difficulties and the priority to sign Robert Lewandoski likely rules them out to sign Salah this summer. However, Real Madrid are closely monitoring the situation.
Salah scooped a Golden Boot and playmaker award double last season. The forward scored 31 goals and provided 16 assists in 51 appearances across all tournaments. Liverpool’s attacking department is likely to have changes. Divock Origi and Sadio Mane have already left the club. Although , Klopp has signed Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho to replace them. The out of favour forward Takumi Minamino is likely to leave for Monaco. The current signings of Calvin Ramsey, Nunez and Carvalho could represent the summer incomings for Liverpool.
