Under contract until June 2023, Mohamed Salah negotiates with Liverpool for a contract extension while his name is quoted from the PSG side to possibly replace Kylian Mbappé who could join Real Madrid next summer. And the capital club may even have its chance in this matter.
Liverpool do not intend to make madness for Salah
Liverpool will not necessarily let go Mohamed Salah. Only, the 29-year-old striker wants to take advantage of his contractual situation to offer himself a salary in the dimension of the footballer he has become in the Reds shirt, since his arrival in 2017. Indeed, according to journalist Dean Jones of the media Eurosport UK, talks between the leaders of the English club and representatives of the former AS Roma forward do not advance at all. Better, they are even at a standstill.
The British source explains in particular that the salary demands of Mohamed Salah are considered outside the salary grid of the Reds. To unblock the situation, the Mersey club must agree to pay the African double Ballon d’Or (2017 and 2018) 475 000 euros per week. A totally exaggerated amount according to his direction. To avoid a free start in 2023, Liverpool could therefore resolve to place the Egyptian international on the market at the end of the season. And the Paris Saint-Germain would already stand ready to jump at this opportunity.
A nice opening for PSG?
In case of departure of Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain made Mohamed Salah his main priority with Erling Haaland to come to succeed him in Mauricio Pochettino’s team. With colossal means, the club of President Nasser Al-Khelaifi would even be ready to go crazy to get his hands on one of these sacred attackers. To the latest news, the Spanish newspaper Fichajes reveals that Salah could finally be the lucky one to come and possibly take Mbappé’s place.
The media reveals that Leonardo is already talking with the entourage of the former Chelsea winger. Moreover, the sporting director of PSG would have already assured the Salah clan that the 26 million euros annual salary over four years that he demands to sign, do not constitute a major concern for him. If no agreement is reached between Liverpool and his player, PSG could take the opportunity to strike a very big blow next summer.
