Mohamed Salah’s Possible Departure from Liverpool Creates Buzz
Former Premier League midfielder Jan Aage Fjortoft suggests that Mohamed Salah might leave Liverpool before this week’s transfer deadline. Even though Liverpool wants to keep their star player, Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad has shown significant interest in acquiring him.
The rumors about Salah’s potential move surfaced last week. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, downplayed these links before their recent victory against Newcastle. Despite this, Al-Ittihad, the reigning Saudi Arabian champions, are determined to make Salah an offer that would make him the highest-paid player in Saudi Arabia.
Jan Aage Fjortoft, known for his insights due to his connections in the Premier League, took to social media to fuel the speculation. On Twitter, he stated, “I understand it’s likely that Salah will leave Liverpool this week.” Fjortoft added more details in a subsequent tweet, emphasizing the incredible financial package both the player and the club are being offered. He also highlighted the complication that the Saudi transfer window closes on September 7th (although some sources suggest September 20th).
Despite Fjortoft’s previous incorrect predictions, Al-Ittihad seems determined to pursue Salah with an enticing financial proposal. They are working on finalizing a significant offer in the hopes of convincing Liverpool to reluctantly part ways with Salah.
However, Jurgen Klopp remains steadfast that Salah will stay with the club, especially since there’s limited time to secure a suitable replacement before the Premier League transfer window closes on Friday. Klopp stated, “There is nothing to talk about, we don’t have an offer. Mo is a Liverpool player and essential for everything we do. If there was something the answer would be ‘no’.”
Salah, who recently took a day off from training to visit a museum in London, has a contract with Liverpool until 2025. He has shown no signs of wanting to leave Anfield. With 308 appearances for Liverpool and 187 goals to his name, Salah’s impact on the team is undeniable.
