Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017 from Roma as Liverpool paid £37.8 million for the winger after a brilliant two-season spell in the Italian capital. Upon the completion of Salah’s transfer, there were plenty of critics of the deal due to the Egyptian previously having little success while playing for Chelsea.
Had those critics watched Salah while he starred at Fiorentina and Roma from 2015 to 2017, they would have realised the forward was a completely different player.
Salah’s Liverpool contract is down to its final year. There is no guarantee that Salah will remain at Anfield this summer. The transfer market could open up for Salah this offseason with the Reds potentially cashing in on their most prized asset.
How much is Mohamed Salah worth?
Salah joined Liverpool for less than £40 million. Looking back on the number of goals and assists he has recorded as a Liverpool player, the Reds definitely exploited the transfer market to get him.
According to Transfermarkt, Salah’s value is currently at £90 million. His previous transfer value high was £135m in May 2018. If Liverpool sell Salah this offseason, it could be for less than the £90m value Transfermarkt have tagged him with.
Salah has just one season left on his current contract. Sadio Mane will also be out of contract in the summer of 2023. He is being pursued by Bayern Munich, but there is hope that Fenway Sports Group will block any sale of Mane.
Mohamed Salah Transfer News
Kylian Mbappe’s decision to stay at Paris Saint-Germain could lead Real Madrid to pursue Salah. There are rumours that Real Madrid could be banned from the Champions League in 2022-23. The potential ban was allegedly the reason Mbappe chose to remain in Paris.
An exit from Anfield has been rumoured for some time for Salah. Although he has been incredibly important during his time at Anfield, the arrival of Luis Diaz has shown Liverpool can continue to exploit the transfer market to find top forwards.
There is no guarantee Salah would have the same success if he left Liverpool. The Reds may be more interested in letting him leave while retaining Mane.
What is Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool Salary?
Salah is far from being the Premier League’s best-paid player. He earns a weekly Salary of £200,000 per week for an average salary of £10.4 million a season.
Salah wants a deal that reflects his importance to the club. Yet, Liverpool are unwilling to change their wage structure, especially for a player that will turn 30-years-old on June 15.
