Mohamed Salah could still move to Al Ittihad, despite Liverpool’s ‘not for sale’ stance.

The Reds have been completely clear with the Saudi Pro League club right from the start: Mo is going nowhere. But despite that, rumours of an exit have continued to swirl.

With deadline day now upon us, Liverpool fans will be feeling confident that their Egyptian King will still be wearing red for the short, medium and long-term future. But according to 90min, it isn’t all as cut and dry as that.

They claim that, undeterred by Liverpool’s public – and private – proclamations, Al Ittihad are still planning to push ahead with their Salah plan.

Not bound by today’s European transfer deadline, 90min claim that the Saudi club can bring players in until September 20th. However, this is refuted by other sources, who claim a September 7th deadline.

Nevertheless, the point remains that Al Ittihad are reportedly ready to offer a British record £120m to Liverpool. They are also said to be prepared to make Salah the highest paid footballer on the planet.

With all this in mind, the 31-year-old is claimed to be ‘keen’ on the move. And despite the Reds’ hard-line stance, ‘sources with knowledge of the situation,’ say a deal could still get done.
