Van Dijk quizzed on if Liverpool are limiting Netherlands game time

Mo Salah wants a staggering £500,000 a week to extend his stay with Liverpool.

The 29-year-old is already one of the biggest earners at Anfield – a reward for continually ending up on top of the club’s scoring charts.

But he is has less than two years of his current deal, believed to be more than £200,000 a week, to run, and manager Jurgen Klopp is anxious to tie him down to keep him out of the clutches of interested big guns which include Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Already a number of established stars including Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and skipper Jordan Henderson have agreed to commit their long term futures to the club by signing new improved deals.







None of them though have been as ambitious as Salah in their wage demands which has meant that so far there has been no breakthrough in on going talks.

If agreed it would be the biggest ever financial package for a player in Liverpool’s proud history although so far there have been no signs that Salah will get his own way.

It was a quiet summer transfer window for Klopp with just £36 million invested in defender Ibrahima Konate, the club preferring to concentrate on new extended contracts for their established stars.









It’s believed they are prepared to offer Salah a hefty wage rise – but not to shatter any pay structure with £500,000 a week.

The signs are that the Egyptian forward, who has been a sensation on Merseyside since his bargain £36 million arrival from Roma, will have to lower his demands to receive a new improved deal.

Salah has joined up with Egypt for their World Cup qualifying match against Gabon, despite Liverpool previously blocking any such moves.

The fixture will take place in Gabon, and with the country not on the UK’s red list Salah won’t have to quarantine upon his return.
