Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad is making a bold move to acquire Liverpool’s prolific forward, Mohamed Salah, before the Saudi transfer window slams shut this Thursday.
Recent reports from Sky Sports have unveiled ongoing negotiations between the two clubs, sparked by Al Ittihad’s thrilling 4-3 encounter with Al Hilal last Friday. However, Liverpool swiftly rebuffed their initial offer of £150 million, setting the stage for a high-stakes negotiation.
Despite Al Ittihad’s unwavering persistence, Liverpool remains determined to retain the 31-year-old Egyptian superstar.
Salah, fresh from showcasing his scoring prowess with a goal in Liverpool’s recent 3-0 triumph over Aston Villa, is considered indispensable by the Merseyside club. Liverpool’s stance is unequivocal: Mohamed Salah is not for sale at any price.
Key figures within the Al Ittihad hierarchy find themselves at a crossroads, torn between their fervour to acquire Salah and their respect for Liverpool’s decision. They now face the daunting challenge of substantially increasing their offer to entice Liverpool back to the negotiation table. With the clock ticking,
Al Ittihad must make a strategic decision – press on with their pursuit now or bid their time until next summer, hoping for more favourable conditions for a successful bid.
It’s important to highlight that Mohamed Salah remains under contract with Liverpool until 2025, providing the English club with a significant advantage in any transfer talks. Coupled with Liverpool’s unwavering resolve to keep their prized asset, Al Ittihad’s task becomes all the more formidable.
The footballing world is on the edge of its seats as Al Ittihad navigates the intricate path of securing one of the Premier League’s most celebrated stars.
The question of whether they can sway Liverpool into reconsidering their position or if they will be forced to wait until next summer remains shrouded in uncertainty.
What is clear is that the pursuit of Mohamed Salah is far from over, and it promises to be one of the most captivating transfer sagas in recent memory.
