Liverpool got a breath of fresh air from contract negotiations with Mohamed Salah. They were able to reach an agreement verbally with Salah regarding a new contract.
With this new contract, Salah could retire at Liverpool. Because, the duration of the new contract given to Liverpool to Salah is quite long.
The salary given by Liverpool also satisfies Salah. It seems that they have found a solution to the problem that was debated during the negotiation process.
1. Can be equal to Ronaldo
Salah initially rejected Liverpool new salary of £400,000 or equivalent He felt the salary was not equivalent to his contribution at Liverpool.
Actually, as reported by the Daily Mirror , it is enough to pass the rules from Liverpool which are reluctant to give high salaries to players over 30 years old. However, in the end, the Reds management made an exception for Salah.
The 29-year-old man is likely to be on par with Cristiano Ronaldo, who earns up to £500,000 per week.
2. Finalize one more detail
Now, there is one more clause that Liverpool are discussing with Salah. That is related to the exact duration of Salah contract with Liverpool.
Salah new contract will last up to three years. However, Liverpool want to include an additional 12 months clause in his contract. If that happens, then Salah can only withdraw from Liverpool when he is 35 years old.
3. PSG and Barcelona could withdraw
Under these conditions, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain should have resigned. Both of them will most likely find it difficult to get Salah services.
Yes, Barcelona need Salah to strengthen their attacking sector, following the potential for Ousmane Dembele to leave Camp Nou. Meanwhile, PSG want Salah because Kylian Mbappe will withdraw on a free transfer at the end of this season.
