Liverpool has turned down a £150 million offer for Mohamed Salah from Al Ittihad, but the Saudi Pro League team is determined to continue their pursuit. Al Ittihad hasn’t ruled out the possibility of making an improved offer, despite their initial bid of £100 million (which could rise to £150 million) being rejected on Deadline Day. Liverpool is unwavering in their stance that Salah is not available for transfer, although there are indications from certain sources that the Saudi club may still have a chance to secure a deal.
As long as Al Ittihad feels encouraged, they intend to make another attempt. When asked about the possibility of Salah leaving on Friday, Jurgen Klopp stated, “The position remains the same, absolutely. No doubt about that. We cannot sell Salah. That’s how it is. Nothing else to say.”
While the Premier League’s transfer window closes at 11 pm on Friday night, Saudi Pro League clubs have almost another week to make signings, with their transfer window closing on September 7th. Al Ittihad is willing to offer Salah £1.5 million per week and aims to test his loyalty to Liverpool, despite his agent Ramy Abbas previously ruling out a move this month. Both the club and the Saudi Pro League understand that Liverpool is firm in their position that the Egyptian forward is not available for transfer, and the mentioned figures have not swayed this stance.
Throughout this situation, the 31-year-old Salah has maintained a professional demeanor despite the ongoing speculation.
