Liverpool fans can now breathe a big sigh of relief because their best striker, Mohamed Salah, has decided to stay at the club for longer. Salah’s current deal with Liverpool was set to end in the summer of 2019. There were a lot of rumors about Salah leaving Liverpool, which made fans and supporters nervous. All of those rumors have now been put to rest by the new three-year deal for the front.
With his new long-term contract, Salah will make more money than any other Liverpool player in history. According to a report from The Athletic, Salah’s three-year contract is worth about £350,000 per week.
The previous highest-paid player was reportedly the Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool, who made £220,000 per week. Last August, Van Dijk signed a new contract that kept him on the team.
Salah’s future at Liverpool became a big story when he took a long time to sign a new contract. However, it would be wrong to think that the striker’s camp didn’t try to find a solution.
The same news source recently said that Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas, and Liverpool did meet in December 2021 to talk about a deal, but they couldn’t come to an agreement. Abbas had even been to Miami to meet Mike Gordon, who is the head of the Fenway Sports Group.
“I feel great and am looking forward to helping the club win trophies. Salah told the club’s official website, “It’s a happy day for everyone.”
“I think it takes a little bit of time to renew,” the 30-year-old said. “But now that everything is done, we just need to focus on what’s next.”
Salah came back to the Premier League in 2017 from the Italian club Roma. Up to this point, he has played in 254 games for Liverpool and scored 156 goals.
Salah played in 35 Premier League games for Merseyside and scored 23 goals and had 13 assists. Son Heung-Min, a striker for Tottenham Hotspur, tied for the Premier League Golden Boot, which is a big honor.
Salah also won the Player of the Year award from the Professional Footballers’ Association. The former Chelsea striker also won the top award from the Football Writers’ Association.
