And the journalist specializing in transfers, Fabrizio Romano, indicated that the negotiations between Salah and Liverpool reached a “dead end”, after Salah and his client, Rami Abbas, rejected Liverpool’s last offer months ago.
It is noteworthy that Salah and his Colombian business manager, Rami Abbas, have been engaged in complex negotiations with Liverpool since the beginning of the season, to renew his contract, which expires in the summer of 2023.
German coach Jurgen Klopp sparked speculation about the possibility of a “deadlock” between Liverpool and Salah, after he indicated that Liverpool had given Salah everything he could, and that the decision was in his hands, hinting that Salah’s material demands “will not be fulfilled.”
Klopp told reporters at the AXA training center in Liverpool on Friday that club officials had done their best in talks to renew Mo Salah’s contract, adding, “No, we can’t do more… that’s how it is.”
He added, “I don’t think it is about the conversations, as much as it is about Salah’s decision. I think the club did what it could do.”
Is it close to leaving?
With the latest statements from Klopp, in addition to Romano’s assertion that the “Reds” do not want to break the “salary structure” among the team’s players, and give Salah a much higher salary than his colleagues, Salah’s departure from Liverpool is closer than ever.
As for the survival scenario, it seems that if Salah “waived” his previous demands, he would receive approximately 400,000 pounds per week, making him among the 3 highest paid players in the Premier League.
Europe’s top clubs are not interested in Salah
In the event of his departure from Liverpool, the options do not seem “excellent” for Salah, as most clubs do not seem to be in a suitable position for Salah to move to.
Real Madrid, Spain, is determined to sign the Frenchman, Kylian Mbappe, and appears stable on his other wing, Vinicius Junior, who is providing an excellent performance.
As for Manchester City, it seems that it will focus on contracting the Norwegian striker Erling Haaland, and will not sign attacking wings with Salah Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden.
And Barcelona, Spain, will not be able to afford Salah’s high salary, amid the stifling crisis he is going through, and it seems that he is following a policy of “saving” in contracting players.
As for the other European giant, Bayern Munich, it does not usually sign stars with “fantastic” salaries, and it appears refreshed in attack with the presence of Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Leros Sane.
As for Chelsea, the former club of Salah, who is experiencing a real crisis by freezing the assets of its owner Roman Abramovich, and he may need a year or two to adjust his financial matters, and he will certainly not think of contracting with a player of the size of Salah.
What is the possible destination?
And in the event of leaving Liverpool, Salah will not have many options, despite his great talent, as sometimes the high salary and the high age, prevent the “realization of dreams”.
Salah may have 3 “logical” options to move, which may not be completely satisfactory to him.
The first of these is the French Paris Saint-Germain, who may seek to build a new project, with the departure of Mbappe imminent.
The Paris club will have no problem giving Salah “what he wants”, but Salah will have to play in a league much less than the English Premier League.
The second option is to return to Italy, and play for Juventus, which has a strong management that can give Salah a large salary, but it will wait to buy it for free in the summer of 2023.
Playing with Juventus may be a “good option”, but the old lady’s club is far from its previous level, and Salah is likely to lose his luster with a defensive style of play, taking Cristiano Ronaldo out of Juve.
The third option is Manchester United, who seems desperate to return to the club in the Premier League, and may give Salah what he wants from financial guarantees.
But his move to the “arch-enemy”, will cancel his overwhelming popularity in Liverpool, and turn him into the first enemy, after he was loved by an entire city, a choice in which Salah will sacrifice a lot for the “material”.
