EPL: Mohamed Salah to become Liverpool highest earner

Liverpool are set to make Mohamed Salah their highest-paid player and will use the offer of a lucrative signing-on fee to spice up the deal, SportsMail reports.

Salah’s current contract at Anfield runs through to 2023.

But Liverpool are making plans to get the Egyptian forward tied down in a fresh terms like many of his team-mates.

However, the Reds do not want to shatter their wage structure, but will instead consider using a signing-on fee.

Reports that Salah is demanding for £500,000 a week deal isn’t true, as he understands the financial parameters of owners Fenway Sports Group.


Any new deal would however see him become the best-paid player in the club’s history, eclipsing Vigil Van Dijk’s new £220,000-a-week contract.

Last week, Salah said: “It doesn’t depend on me, but if you asked me I would love to stay until the last day of my football [career].

“I can’t say much about that, it’s not in my hands. It depends on what the club wants.”
