Liverpool have been wanting to sign Mohamed Salah for some time, but the Egyptian has not signed a new contract. According to a report, the reason could be that FC Barcelona is luring him.
Free transfer to Barcelona? Contract negotiations between Mohamed Salah and Liverpool FC have been stalled for months. Now there are indications that the talks may be difficult because FC Barcelona have promised the Egyptian to sign him on a free transfer next summer. According to the English “Mirror”, the prospect of playing for the Catalans and at the same time collecting a lavish bonus is said to have prevented Salah from signing early with the “Reds”.
Short, compact, clear
Financial question marks: Can the cash-strapped Catalans even afford Salah? Because in a conversation with Liverpool, the 29-year-old had recently asked for his salary to be doubled – from currently around 12.5 million euros per season to 25 million euros.
And what does Klopp want? Despite the Egyptian’s dizzying salary expectations, his coach Jurgen Klopp still wants to keep him. The striker is apparently so important to the “Reds” that the club would even be willing to break up the squad’s salary structure for him.
