Liverpool FC has reportedly received a staggering £200 million bid for their star player, Mohamed Salah. The offer is said to have come from a Saudi Arabian delegation during their visit to London.
The Egyptian forward has been a key player for Liverpool since joining the club in 2017. Salah’s impressive performances have helped the team achieve great success, including winning the Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles.
According to reports, the Saudi Arabian delegation made the bid in an attempt to bring Salah to their country. The offer, if accepted, would make Salah the most expensive player in football history, surpassing the current record held by Neymar Jr., who was transferred to Paris Saint-Germain for £198 million in 2017.
Liverpool, however, is determined to hold on to their prized asset. The club’s management, led by manager Jurgen Klopp, considers Salah an integral part of their future plans and is not interested in selling him.
Salah’s contract with Liverpool runs until 2023, and the club is reportedly planning to offer him a new deal to secure his long-term commitment. The 28-year-old has expressed his happiness at Anfield and his desire to continue playing for Liverpool.
The Saudi Arabian delegation’s interest in Salah comes as no surprise, as the country has been investing heavily in sports in recent years. They have hosted high-profile events such as the Formula One Grand Prix and the heavyweight boxing rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr.
While Liverpool remains firm in their stance of keeping Salah, it remains to be seen if the Saudi Arabian delegation will return with an improved offer. For now, Salah continues to be an integral part of Liverpool’s success on the pitch, and fans will be hoping to see him in the famous red shirt for years to come.
