Mohammed Salah is not demanding £500,000 a week wages as earlier reported by the British tabloid.
Salah remains one of the key players at Liverpool who is yet to sign a new deal with reports emerging on Sunday from the Mirror that the Egyptian had asked for an enormous amount if he was to extend his stay at the club.
Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle has refuted the claims and while he doesn’t reveal what the player is expecting, he did clarify that Salah IS NOT demanding wages ‘in the region of £500,000-a-week’ from the club.
The Athletic’s James Pearce recently stated talks between the club and Salah’s entourage have been ‘productive’ and that there isn’t any reason to be concerned over contract negotiations as the Reds aim to secure the Egyptian’s long-term future.
The Reds who had a quiet summer transfer, are keen on extending the stay of some of their established players and hopes that Salah, who has been linked with a move to Laliga before, will see the best of his years at Anfield.
🚨 NEW: It is understood the amount of money Mo Salah is asking for during ongoing contract negotiations is not in the region of the £500,000-a-week that was being suggested over the weekend. #awlive [liverpool echo] pic.twitter.com/miZtViyqmD
