KEY POINTS

  • Mo Salah has a contract with Liverpool until 2023
  • He currently earns a weekly wage of $269,000
  • He has scored 110 goals in 173 matches for Liverpool since his debut

Liverpool FC are reportedly planning to offer Mohamed Salah a lucrative offer amid the Egyptian player’s links with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp chose Trent Alexander-Arnold over Salah to lead Liverpool in a Champions League match earlier this season in the absence of the club's captain and vice-captain.

Salah, who is six years senior to Alexander-Arnold, admitted that he was left disappointed with the coach’s decision. Following Salah’s recent statements, the player has been linked with a move away from Anfield. However, unnamed sources have informed Goal that the Reds are preparing a long-term deal for the 28-year-old playmaker. International Business Times, however, could not verify it independently.

The new deal is understood to be better than Salah’s current weekly wage of $269,000. Even though Salah, whose deal with Liverpool is due to expire in 2023, is aware that he has admirers at Real Madrid and Barcelona. The Egyptian King said his focus right now is to win the Premier League and Champions League again with the Anfield side.

"I think Madrid and Barcelona are the two top clubs. Who knows what will happen in the future, but right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again," Salah told Diario AS in an interview that was followed by many, speculating his exit from Liverpool.

When he was asked about his future in the AS interview, Salah clearly mentioned that it would be completely Liverpool’s decision.

"That's a tough question, but right now I can say that everything is in the hands of the club. Of course, I want to break records here and, I repeat, all the club records, but everything is in the hands of the club," Salah added.

Ahead of the 2017-18 season, Liverpool signed Salah from Roma at a fee of $46 million. In what turned out to be a record-breaking season for Salah, he netted an incredible 44 goals in his maiden campaign with Liverpool. Ever since then, Salah has finished as the leading goal-scorer for Liverpool in every single season to date. Having scored 110 goals in 173 matches apart from winning the Premier League, Champions League, Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup, Salah has already established himself as one of the Liverpool greats.
