Salah is not for sale: Liverpool rejects Al Lttihad’s offer

Liverpool has rejected a verbal offer for Salah worth up to £150m from Al Ittihad on Thursday.

Al Ittihad wants to make another bid for Mohamed Salah before the Saudi Pro League window ends on Thursday.

Some prominent members of the club are in favor of attempting to acquire Salah once more, while others are suggesting that they should postpone their efforts until the following summer.

Any new offer would need to be approved first by the SPL through interim chief executive Saad Al Lazeez and director of football Michael Emenalo.

However, Liverpool’s stance on not selling their Egyptian footballer has not changed.

“I never had any doubts about his commitment to this club. You can’t imagine how much fuss the world has made but how calm we are with it. He is our player and he wants to play here.” Liverpool gaffer, Jurgen Klopp spoke after Sunday’s win.

The Saudi Pro League (SPL) window closes at 10pm UK time on Thursday.

However according to Sports News chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol:

“Liverpool’s position is that the player is not for sale and has two years left on his contract. Al Ittihad’s position is they made a verbal offer for the player last Thursday of up to £150m, which was rejected.

“They had a big game on Friday night which they lost. After that game and during the weekend, they have held talks over what they should do next.

“Our information is that they want to make another offer for Mo Salah before the Saudi window closes on Thursday. Senior figures at Al Ittihad are saying they believe it’s worth having one more go to try and get him.

“But there are also very influential voices at the club who are advising them to draw a line under it for now, let’s respect Liverpool as they’ve made it clear he’s not for sale, and then try again next summer.

“One other significant point to make is that Al Ittihad cannot act unilaterally. They can’t just decide to make an offer, pick up the phone and ring up Liverpool.

“What they would need to do is go through the Saudi Pro League because every offer has to be approved by the league and through their interim chief executive Saad Al Lazeez and director of football Michael Emenalo.”
