Despite Liverpool rejecting a £150m offer from Liverpool from Al-Ittihad for Mohamed Salah, the Saudi club aren’t prepared to give up.

This is what Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna is reporting on Twitter on Friday afternoon, as he claims that the Egypt international has agreed in principle to the move.

He doesn’t use those words exactly, but he does reveal that the contract on offer would be a four-year deal, keeping him at the Saudi side until 2027.

Were he to leave Liverpool, he would also get three more years of payments on top of that for his image rights as he would take up an ‘ambassador role’.

The package for those four years of playing and three extra year of promo work would be a somewhere around $500-600m.

This is when Aouna explains that Salah ‘will say yes’ to all this if Liverpool accept ‘the new offer’ for Al-Ittihad.

That doesn’t appear to have been made yet, but it’s likely to arrive in the coming hours if it does, as Liverpool would then have to find a replacement at the very last minute with everyone knowing they have a lot of money to spend.
