Saudi bombshell: ‘Unbelievable’ offer made to Liverpool & Salah two days before window shuts

Posted by

Life at Liverpool could be about to get incredibly complicated should Liverpool and Mo Salah accept terms reportedly being offered to them by Saudi Arabia.

An unnamed Saudi Pro League outfit is understood to have offered ‘unbelievable’ funds to the club and Egyptian King, according to an X update from Jan Aage Fjortoft.

This comes at a time when the Merseysiders have yet to finish key bits of business of their own, with a fourth midfielder and centre-back cover still yet to arise with only two days remaining in the transfer window.

That is to say two days remaining in the British transfer window, with Saudi presenting a threat to clubs across Europe with their extended window going into September.

Whilst we must emphasise that Fjortoft is a more than respectable source and journalist, we find it difficult to believe that Liverpool would be foolish enough to sell such a talismanic player – without ANY replacement already sorted – this late in the window.

Perhaps an agreement could be made for the following summer window, should clubs in the Saudi top-flight be desperate enough to secure such a big name in the Arabic world, though it would be grossly negligent on our part to further strip down the squad at this point in time.

With little in the way of cover present in the squad beyond Ben Doak and Harvey Elliott too, it would simply be an act of self-harm from Liverpool.

  1. It can be suicidal if LFC can entertain Mohammed Salah ‘s transfer as no club can sell a replacement to LFC. That could be counterintuitive in deed.So Salah should stay put until for now and move next summer. We have only two days to complete our own bussiness in relation to the additional signings.So we don’t need a distraction.

    1. Ben Doak is not ready to replace MS. He is too young and fragile. And there is no guarantee in January window that we will find a decent player. I would hate to see us sell Salah and waste the money on junkies in January because we are rushing.

  2. A catastrophe, that’s what klopp said about selling Salah. FSG don’t care about klopp or what he’s said.
    FSG don’t care about the supporters, the super league proved that. FSG don’t even care where Liverpool are heading this season with the smallest squad in the premier league. Without Salah Liverpool are mid table mediocrity.

    FSG get the net spend into profits.
    No right back, no central defender, no quality defensive midfielder, no replacement for Salah.
    FSG have shown their true intentions, they’ve shown they’re not committed to Liverpool for success.

    FSG only care about profits. As they always have. GREED.

    Liverpool football club in terminal decline under charlatan owners FSG.

    1. absolute nonsense. profit made is profit for LFC not FSG so please stop with this vicious tirade against our club. LFC are the opposite of terminal decline. Salah is albut 32, set to leave next summer anyway, for much less, will be missing in the winter for Afcon, and is on too high wages. If we get a big offer absolutely bite their hand off. We are well stocked with forwards …. Diaz Nunez Gakpo Jota is better than any rival club. you clearly don’t care for Liverpool

      1. Good business. £200m minimum and let him go – if he wants to. Lots of goals/firepower left. Elliott/Doak take the right wing slot. No player even Mo bigger than the club. Provided Juergen gets all the proceeds to spend then do it.

    2. If Salah wants to leave, no kloppo, no fsg, no queen Elizabeth can stop him.

      The buck stops with the player.

  3. Sum offered is $180m in one payment….Sounds incredible..if there were three months of the transfer window remaining…not three days. So unless Liverpool have several deals lined up just waiting for the cheque to be signed off nothing will happen if they sell at that price they will have a huge amount of money sitting in their pocket and no time to spend it.

  4. This will be the most ridiculous deal to consider let alone, accept. This confirms our long-held notion that FSG is only out to make huge profits and not improve the team in any way going forward.
    FSG, why don’t you sell the club, take your money, and leave us supporters alone?

  5. Personally id sell Salah for 200 million but we should buy a replacement first otherwise other clubs will try and fleece us. That being said leaving it this late to do business is suicide
    Champions league is a must for next season and we are already going to struggling with no CDM.
    Wait till the summer and then start a bidding war between the Saudi clubs makes the most sense to me

  6. Good business. £200m minimum and let him go – if he wants to. Lots of goals/firepower left. Elliott/Doak take the right wing slot. No player even Mo bigger than the club. Provided Juergen gets all the proceeds to spend then do it.

  7. For £100m snap their dodgy hands off. Buy Bakayoko from PSV, Gravernbach from Bayern and Shuur. Makes us a much better team.

  8. If the offer is as significant as what is being talked about, then sell, as long as all of the money is to go into rebuilding the squad in Jan and next summer. Next summer we would get less than 60m and as we know our owners ….money talks…..that is coming in money not spending it. I really can not see us getting anyone else in by fri. We have been a total joke this transfer market and I can only see it getting worse. Now to add to our troubles Big Virgil has got himself banned, which means, ohhh god Gomez to come in. I know why not get Phillips in aswell just to add to our misery. No new centre back, no good quality number 6. If we finish 8th I would be surprised.
