Saudi Club Confident in Signing Mohamed Salah


Saudi football officials remain confident that the signing of Mohamed Salah by a Saudi club is only a matter of time after the Jeddah Federation failed to include the Egyptian star in recent summer transfers.

Failed Attempt by Al Ittihad

Al Ittihad, one of four clubs owned by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, made a concerted effort to include Salah, but the Saudi team faced the intransigence of the Liverpool administration, who, despite all temptations, refused to give up their first star.

Negotiations in London

According to the British newspaper The Mirror, senior Saudi officials were in London to negotiate Salah with Liverpool after the Reds had already turned down a £150m offer.

Record-Breaking Offer

The federation was ready to pay for the Egyptian star the largest amount in the history of football, in excess of 200 million pounds.

Liverpool’s Decision

However, Liverpool stuck to Salah and now expect Al Ittihad to resume their attempts to sign the Egyptian star next year.

Competition from Other Saudi Clubs

Al-Ittihad will not be the only Saudi club to try to sign Salah next year, according to The Mirror, as his move is pending. Al-Ahly and Al-Hilal, who are also owned by the Public Investment Fund, are seeking to sign a contract with Pharaoh.

Klopp’s Plan for Salah

A British newspaper said that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would be pleased with the stability of his team’s management and not neglecting Salah for the Al Ittihad club. Salah is considered important in Klopp’s plans for this season, as the Reds are looking forward to the opportunity to compete for the English Premier League again.

Salah’s Contract with Liverpool

Salah joined Liverpool in 2017 for around €40m and last summer extended his contract with the club for another three years, ending on 30 June 2025.
