The stats behind Mohamed Salah’s 100 Premier League goals
Mohamed Salah’s contract expires in 2023. Recently, the 29-year-old striker is said to have rejected a new extension offer from The Kop. Both sides seem to be unable to find a common voice on the level of income, when the Egyptian striker wants to become the highest-paid player in the Premier League, up to £ 500,000 / week.
The Red Brigade can hardly meet, because they do not want to break the club’s salary structure. Barcelona is said to be keeping a close eye on this deal. The Catalan giants are considering a potential €70m deal for Salah. In the past, Blaugrana has recruited stars on The Kop payroll such as Javier Mascherano, Luis Suarez or most recently Philippe Coutinho.
Former goalkeeper Paul Robinson thinks The Kop can repeat the same thing: ” We’ve seen Liverpool do it before with Coutinho and Luis Suarez.
The £140m they received for Coutinho ultimately benefited the club with the signings of Alisson and Van Dijk. They helped the club get back on track and reach a higher level.
Can Liverpool do it again? It is not certain yet . Personally, I think Salah will leave a huge void that will be difficult to fill.”
Salah is an important nucleus, helping The Kop win the Champions League and Premier League, respectively. He is currently considered the best attacking star in the world.
