Liverpool ‘ready to give Mo Salah a signing-on fee to make him their highest earner’

Liverpool ‘ready to use a lucrative signing-on fee to make Mohamed Salah the highest earner at the club’ as they push to tie down the Egyptian star to a new long-term deal following his sensational start to the season

  • Mohamed Salah’s current contract at Liverpool runs through until 2023
  • The Egyptian is yet to commit to fresh terms but discussions are still ongoing
  • TEAMtalk report a signing-on fee could be key for Liverpool to reach a deal
  • Salah is believed to be targeting becoming the Reds’ top earner in the squad 


Liverpool are reportedly ready to use the offer of a lucrative signing-on fee to get Mohamed Salah to agree to a new long-term deal, becoming the club’s highest earner in the process. 

Salah’s current deal runs through to 2023 but Liverpool have made it a priority to get their star man locked onto fresh terms like many of his team-mates.

TEAMtalk report that while Liverpool understand he wants to become the highest earner in Jurgen Klopp‘s squad, they do not want to shatter their wage structure and so using a signing-on fee is under consideration.

 

Salah is being discussed in this moment as a candidate to be the best player in the world, so good has his form been to start the season. 

The Egyptian winger already has 15 goals to his name this season for Liverpool, including his stunning hat-trick against Manchester United last weekend.

TEAMTalk’s report goes on to add that suggestions that Salah is holding out for £500,000 a week is false as he understands the financial parameters of owners Fenway Sports Group.

His sensational start to the season has seen his future come up after every match.

Before the 5-0 drubbing of Manchester United, Salah was asked by Sky Sports if he wants to stay on Merseyside. 

He said: ‘It doesn’t depend on me, but if you asked me I would love to stay until the last day of my football [career].

‘I can’t say much about that, it’s not in my hands. It depends on what the club wants. 

‘It doesn’t depend on me. At the moment, I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad.

‘It’s hard. I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad and at the moment I don’t see myself playing against Liverpool, but let’s see what will happen in the future.’
