Mohamed Salah signs new contract worth £350,000 per week

Liverpool Football Club have confirmed that Mohamed Salah has officially signed a new long-term contract with the club until 2025.

The Egyptian forward has put pen to paper signing on to become Liverpool’s highest-ever paid player with the contract worth around £350,000 per week.

Salah’s previous deal was due to run out next summer, and there was an increasing risk that the club could lose the player on a free transfer as a result.

This news finally brings an end to the long-running saga and gives manager Jurgen Klopp a big boost ahead of the start of pre-season next week.

Salah arrived from Roma in 2017 for £43.9m and has since become Liverpool’s star man with a stellar record of 219 goal contributions in 245 games.

He’s registered three Premier League Golden Boot victories (2017/18, 2018/19 & 2021/22) and earned two FWA Footballer of the Year awards in his five seasons in England.

His goals have helped Liverpool to win every trophy available to them domestically as well as the Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool fans can breathe easy knowing their star man will be leading the line for at least another three years.

 

After confirming the contract, Salah told Liverpool’s website: “I feel great and (I am) excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going (upwards). Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.

“My message (to the fans) is the players in the team want to give our best next season to try to win all the trophies.

“As usual, you stay behind us and give us a big push and I am sure we are going to win trophies again (together).”

Salah will join up with the squad alongside new signings Calvin Ramsey, Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez before heading out to Asia, Germany and Austria before heading back to England to face Manchester City in the Community Shield.
