Liverpool reject £150m bid from Al-Ittihad for Mohamed Salah

Liverpool have turned down a staggering £150 million bid for attacker Mohamed Salah from Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Ittihad, according to the BBC

The jaw-dropping offer stands at over £100m, with additional clauses driving the total value up to the eye-popping figure.

Liverpool have insisted that Salah is not for sale and consider the matter settled. 

This refusal to part ways with the Egyptian international has set a resolute tone amid intense pressure from the Saudi club.

One of Liverpool’s primary concerns in this ongoing saga is the discrepancy in transfer window closure dates. 

While the European transfer window closes today, the Saudi market will remain open until September 7. 

This tight deadline leaves the English club with less than ten hours to secure a suitable replacement if they were to entertain the idea of selling Salah.

The forward, revered as the most prominent Arab athlete worldwide, is wanted by Al-Ittihad as they seek to reinforce their squad. 

This monumental bid would obliterate the Saudi Pro League transfer record, established only weeks ago when Al-Hilal signed Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain for €90 million.

Undeterred by Liverpool’s unyielding stance, Al-Ittihad will continue their pursuit of the 31-year-old. 

Their urgency to secure Salah’s services stems from their ambitions at the upcoming Club World Cup. 

Jeddah, Al-Ittihad’s home city in Saudi Arabia, is set to host the prestigious tournament in December. 

Al-Ittihad are keen to make an indelible mark on the global football stage by clinching victory in this illustrious event.

Whether the Saudi club can persuade the Reds to part with their talismanic forward will be a saga to monitor closely.
