graeme souness predicts mohamed salah's potential move to al-ittihad for £200m

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is reportedly being courted by Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad, who are said to be preparing a £200 million offer for the Egyptian star. Salah’s future at Liverpool has been the subject of much speculation recently, with reports suggesting that he may be considering a move away from Anfield.

Former Liverpool player and manager Graeme Souness has weighed in on the situation, claiming that Salah is “flirting” with the Saudi club. Souness believes that if Al-Ittihad were to make such a substantial offer, it would be difficult for Salah to turn down.

Salah has been a key player for Liverpool since joining the club in 2017. He has consistently performed at a high level, helping the team win numerous trophies including the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. His goal-scoring prowess and technical ability have made him one of the most sought-after players in world football.

However, there have been signs of frustration from Salah this season. He has publicly expressed his disappointment at not being named captain for Liverpool’s Champions League match against FC Midtjylland, and there have been reports of a strained relationship between Salah and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

This has led to speculation that Salah may be considering a move away from Liverpool, with several top European clubs reportedly interested in signing him. Al-Ittihad’s reported interest adds another potential destination for the 28-year-old forward.

Al-Ittihad, based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is one of the country’s most successful clubs, having won the Saudi Professional League eight times. The club is known for its financial backing and has previously attracted high-profile players such as Carlos Villanueva and Romarinho.

If Al-Ittihad were to make a £200 million offer for Salah, it would be a record-breaking transfer fee for an Egyptian player. The current record is held by Salah himself, who joined Liverpool from AS Roma for £36.9 million in 2017.

It remains to be seen whether Salah will entertain the idea of a move to Al-Ittihad or any other club. Liverpool will undoubtedly be reluctant to part ways with their star player, who still has two years remaining on his contract. However, as Souness suggests, a significant offer from Al-Ittihad could prove hard to resist.
