'If that's true, he can go': Some Liverpool fans fume at 'scandalous' wage Salah reportedly wants
Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has reportedly demanded a new wage of £500,000-a-week to stay at Anfield.
According to the Mirror, the 29-year-old winger wants to become the highest-paid player in the history of Liverpool if he is to sign a new contract with the Reds.
Salah’s current contract with Liverpool is due to expire in 2023. The Egyptian winger is already one of the club’s biggest earners, yet these new demands will make the attacker one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League.
As figures from Spotrac show, only Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo earns more than £500k-a-week. Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne is second on the list with £400k-a-week.
Indeed, Liverpool have time to negotiate a new contract with Salah. The Merseyside club have been in good form in handing new deals to players this summer.
Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker and Fabinho have all penned fresh terms with the Reds in recent weeks. And Salah is now the biggest name left on the list for Jurgen Klopp to award a new contract to.
However, on social media, Liverpool fans are fuming at how much wage Salah is demanding. The winger already earns £200,000-a-week according to Spotrac.
Here’s what some supporters had to say about how much wage Salah reportedly wants to stay at Liverpool on Twitter…
Love him and want him to stay but if that's true then he can go. No player is worth that. The last thing we want is to end up like Barcelona.— Sue Williams (@weetabix07) September 4, 2021
No Salah, No Salah, No Salah.— MSJ* (@freakinpotamus) September 4, 2021
Five hundred kay per week.
Love the bloke but we can't be paying that to any player. If he wants it elsewhere then so be it. Scandalous amount of dough— 𝙈𝙤𝙤𝙙𝙮 𝙃𝙖𝙣𝙠 (@TheMoodyHank) September 4, 2021
No one is bigger than the club, sell him. We can't allow players to destroy the club with crazy wages. Psg next i guess.— Chris (@Chris352493) September 4, 2021
