Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool hangs in the balance as reports suggest that the Egyptian forward could be on his way to Al-Ittihad by the end of the week. Al-Ittihad, a Saudi Arabian club, has been aggressively pursuing Salah and has reportedly made offers to both Liverpool and the player himself.
However, Salah’s agent has swiftly dismissed these rumors, denying any intention of moving the star player away from Anfield. Despite the agent’s denial, Jan Aage Fjortoft, a prominent media personality and former footballer, took to Twitter to state that Salah’s departure from Liverpool is indeed likely to happen this week.
If the move were to go through, Al-Ittihad’s bid for Salah’s transfer is rumored to be a staggering £129 million, a sum that would make him potentially the highest-paid player in Saudi Arabia. This move would also add to Liverpool’s growing list of departures to Saudi Arabian clubs this summer, as they have already sold Fabinho and Jordan Henderson. Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are also rumored to have left the club.
The trio of Salah, Firmino, and Mane played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s triumph in the Premier League in 2020. Their attacking prowess helped the club secure the highly coveted league title and establish dominance in English football. Salah himself is considered a legend at Liverpool, having netted an impressive 187 goals in 307 appearances for the club. This outstanding record places him fifth on the club’s all-time scoring chart.
Should Salah complete his move to Al-Ittihad, Liverpool will face a daunting challenge in finding a suitable replacement for their star forward. With the transfer window closing soon, time is of the essence for the club to address this potential void in their attacking lineup.
Liverpool fans will undoubtedly be anxious about the prospect of losing Salah, a beloved player who has left an indelible mark on the club’s recent success. While the player’s agent denies the rumors, the speculation surrounding this potential transfer continues to circulate, leaving Liverpool supporters and football enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the final outcome.
