Former Premier League star Mido has predicted Liverpool to receive nearly half what they were offered for Mohamed Salah this summer next year.
Speaking to King Fut, the pundit made the bold claim that the Reds could struggle to sell the Egyptian international for anywhere near the £125m Al-Ittihad offered for Salah last month.
Liverpool rejected a Premier League-record offer to keep Salah at Anfield, though the expectation very much remains that the winger will leave for Saudi Arabia in 2024.
And Mido now thinks Liverpool will struggle to sell the forward for over £100m, with the pundit saying: “Mohamed Salah will go to the Saudi Pro League.
“But it will be a good thing if he manages to win the Premier League title first this season. After the next season, he will have only one season left on his contract with Liverpool.

“Next year, Liverpool will not be able to ask for more than £70m, £80m, or £100m for the sale of Mohamed Salah. Especially with only one year remaining on his contract.”
Mido could be right about Liverpool struggling to sell Salah for bank
Liverpool made a brave move this summer in rejecting Al-Ittihad’s huge offer for Salah, yet Mido could be right in that the Reds might struggle to receive a new bid over £100m for the attacker.
As important the winger is for Liverpool, nobody can deny that a £100m sale would be massive in the Anfield side finding a replacement for the 31-year-old.
Yet having rejected a £100m+ offer already for Salah, Al-Ittihad might now be tempted to dramatically lower their next bid for the attacker.
