Report: Mo Salah contract talks set to take place as agent jets for Liverpool discussions
Liverpool may have moved a step closer in their quest to tie Mo Salah down to a new contract, as the forward’s agent reportedly arrived in England this weekend.
According to The Mirror, Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, flew into the country over the weekend, adding fuel to the fire that he is here to discuss a new £500k-a-week contract for Salah.
However, The Mirror also claim that both Liverpool and Salah’s representatives are still apart in their expectations. Talk of a £500k-a-week deal would smash Liverpool’s wage structure. But there is talk that the club could be willing to go beyond its top earners, due to Salah’s influence on the XI.
The Egyptian superstar has been in brilliant form this season. He scored yet again at the weekend with another fine individual strike, this time at Watford.
Salah’s contract at the moment runs until 2023. But with his form, the Reds are keen to ensure they don’t lose him either on the cheap, or in the worse case scenario, for free.
Reds fans, then, will be buoyed by the news of Salah’s agent arriving.
TBR’s View: Huge decision coming for Liverpool
The Reds board and the club as a whole face a huge call here. Do they pay Salah what he wants and risk breaking an entire structure? Or do they stick to their guns and risk losing their best player?
It’s a tough call for FSG really. In an ideal world, they reach a compromise and Salah stays put. But if they can’t agree terms, then do they sell this summer with his value still intact?
Liverpool fans will be desperate for this one to be resolved ASAP. If they do lose him, you’ll feel most Reds fans won’t be too happy with the ownership whatsoever.
