Mohamed Salah Liverpool contract latest: What's the hold-up?

Mohamed Salah is yet to reach an agreement with Liverpool over the extension of his contract and the latest is that the club isn’t currently prepared to match his demands.

His agent, Ramy Abbas, is leading the negotiations and reports have said recently that Salah is looking to earn around £400,000-per-week to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Liverpool have never come anywhere close to paying any of their players that much, so it’s going to be very interesting to see how this pans out for the club.

These negotiations could have major ramifications for the wage structure in place. If Liverpool ever explore completing a marquee deal for a player like Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe, they will struggle to get them to agree to anything less than Salah would be hypothetically earning.

According to The Times, as cited by Anfield Watch, Salah and his agent are yet to reach an agreement with the club and the Reds are yet to show any willingness to match their demands.

Beyond consequences for the club’s wage structure, FSG should consider the effects that not keeping Salah at the club would have on Liverpool fans’ relationship with the ownership.

As things stand, fans are already unhappy with FSG for the lack of money spent on transfers in relation to rivals’ recent spending. So to indirectly point Salah to the door, it would cause irreparable damage to their status as custodians of Liverpool Football Club.

At the time of writing, Salah has 15 goals and six assists in all competitions, leading many to claim that the Egyptian is the best player in the world at the moment.
