Mohamed Salah wants to receive at least £300,000 per week if he is to sign a new contract at Liverpool, according to multiple reports.
The 29-year-old scored his 101 Premier League goal for the Merseyside outfit on Sunday, helping his side to a 2-2 draw against title rivals Manchester City.
The Egyptian first showed his class to set up Sadio Mane for a goal that was against the overall run of pla,y but was the result of Liverpool increasing the pace at the start of the second half. Salah’s run and pass was sheer perfection and his attacking partner gratefully accepted the invitation to finish in style.
And after setting up Mane for the first, Salah scored a goal that will live long in the memory, as he twisted and turned in between a host of City defenders before lashing an unstoppable finish past Ederson.
However, despite his status at Anfield, the Egypt international has less than two years remaining on his contract, putting him in a position where other clubs will be monitoring the situation.
According to The Independent, Salah is demanding between £300,000 and £380,000 per week to extend his stay at Liverpool.
Negotiations are expected to continue over the coming weeks and months, the aim being to find a compromise before the end of 2021.
The Egyptian has found the back of the net six times in seven league appearances for the Merseyside Reds so far this campaign.
