Market Desk (sports): Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has penned new 3-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2025.
The forward’s previous contract was due to be expired in 2023. He enjoyed a phenomenal season in 2021/22, grabbing 31 goals and 16 assists in 51 appearances.
Salah won the PFA Player of the Year award last term and he also shared the Golden Boot with Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min.
Liverpool has announced that he has now signed a new ‘long-term contract’.
He will earn ‘in excess of £350,000 a week’ and this ‘makes him the highest paid player in Liverpool’s history’.
Salah’s extension has been announced a couple of weeks after Sadio Mane left Liverpool to join Bayern Munich. The Reds have signed Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho this summer.
Meanwhile, news came this morning that the two sides were close to an agreement, but at the last minute, Salah’s agent made some additional demands, in which the negotiation of the agreement was different. It is rumored that Liverpool’s new sports director Julian Ward and his team have gone where Salah is spending his summer holidays.
Liverpool’s official Twitter account re-tweeted a ‘what else to do’ emoji with a tweet from Rami Abbas Isa, then the buzz went wild. What’s really going on?
However, Liverpool did not wait long after that. Shortly after the announcement, Salah renewed his contract for 3 years. It turned out that so much of the day was just fun to think about. The reason for Liverpool’s sports director Ward’s departure was also understood then. If Salah signs the contract, you don’t have to take pictures to announce it!
Salah joined Liverpool in 2017. Then the Premier League, the Champions League, the Club World Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, the FA Cup, the League Cup – all won once. He has played in three Champions League finals with Liverpool since joining the club, failing to win the league title once for one point. Salah’s consistency has contributed to Liverpool’s continued success in Liverpool’s history.
Speaking on his contract extension, Salah insisted that it is a “happy day for everyone”:
