Liverpool have been on a spree of contract renewals this summer. The Reds have tied down a number of key stars to new deals and will hoping to get round off their business by keeping the Egyptian King at Anfield. However, a report from The Athletic has hinted that what Manchester City are paying Jack Grealish could complicate Liverpool giving Mo Salah a new contract.
Liverpool contract flurry
This summer has seen the Reds tie down a number of key stars to new deals.
Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold have both signed extensions until 2026.
Meanwhile Alisson Becker has gone one further, signing a new deal until 2027.
Virgil van Dijk has also agreed a new deal which runs until 2025 and Jordan Henderson is thought to be close to a three year extension.
Mo Salah new contract complicated
The Athletic has reported on the issue of getting Mo Salah to sign a new contract with Liverpool.
The Reds are said to already be in negotiations with the player’s representatives in an effort to tie the Egyptian down to a new deal.
However, the club are well aware that it will be the most expensive contract in the club’s history.
In addition, things could be complicated further by business being done around the Premier League with one source telling The Athletic:
“You’d expect him to be the top earner at the club, but not by too much. It’s a balancing act. Salah and his people will have seen Jack Grealish getting £300,000 per week at Man City, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens.”
What RTK has to say
This is the problem with the free spending of our rivals.
Not only do we get left behind in terms of squad depth but other clubs end up inflating the market.
It’s only right that Mo Salah should be paid more than Jack Grealish but it’s not our fault that Man City are giving the Englishman £300k a week.
Hopefully we’ll see this issue resolved in the coming weeks, we can’t have Mo entering the final year of his deal.
