Mohamed Salah could soon sign a new Liverpool contract if the club meets the only two demands he has, with the attacker looking to earn £300,000 a week.
He’s arguably the best footballer in the world at the moment and his assist and goal against Manchester City proved that he is able to do it against any team in the league.
The Egyptian King has 9 goals and 3 assists in 9 games and the only game he failed to score in this season came against Burnley but Salah was sensational on the right for the Reds in that game.
He was on a different level last week against Man City and is widely considered to be the most in-form player in the world right now.
However, Liverpool look as though they are inching closer to a new deal for Salah with the Athletic reporting that his new terms could be worth around £300,000 a week.
He reportedly wants two demands to be met and if they are, his new deal could be announced very soon which will boost the team’s morale.
The deal must remunerate him for what he has achieved with the club and reflect his worth as arguably the best player in the league as well as suggest the club agrees that he can continue at the top level for years to come and extend his terms for a suitable length.
Salah is an exemplary pro and trains better than anyone. Not only that but the Egyptian eats a clean diet, doesn’t party and should be able to operate at a high level for three or four more years.
He will be 30 in June but isn’t close to the end of his playing days and so Liverpool aren’t taking a huge risk with giving him a huge new contract the way Arsenal were when they agreed to pay Pierre Emerick Aubameyang £350,000 per week.
Salah potentially set for a record-breaking season
The former Basel speedster already has 9 goals in 9 games and if he can maintain that goal per game ratio, he will demolish his career record of 44 goals in a single season.
Since joining the club, he has averaged 50 games per season and would therefore get 50 goals this season at the current rate and that kind of form could propel him into the Balon d’or conversation.
