The most recent information regarding Mo Salah’s future at Liverpool has been given by David Ornstein of The Athletic. Saudi Arabia has a connection to the forward.
This week, at a Q&A session with the Athletic, David Ornstein discussed Mo Salah’s performance. Due to rumors that Saudi Arabian clubs were interested in Salah at the conclusion of the summer transfer season, his future is now unknown.
It was also alleged that they were willing to shell out an unprecedented amount of money to become the face of Arabic football.
At first glance, it seems unlikely that Liverpool would consider offloading their most valuable asset—arguably their best player ever. Although Salah is now 31 years old, that kind of money is unheard of and may really help Salah get back on track after the no. 11 position.
Next are Salah’s personal aspirations. The Egyptian would be living in a region of the world he is familiar with, which sets him apart from every other famous player that moves there. He would also receive a life-altering sum of money for making such a move.
Salah may not wish to leave Liverpool, according to Ornstein. In his Q&A, he was asked if there was “any noise” at the moment about a possible deal.
“No, other than I don’t think it’s set in stone he goes,” he responded. “There have even been some speculations that he would like to stay and carry on competing at the top level in Europe.
“It’s a major decision for player and club, of course.”
In the upcoming years, Liverpool’s biggest decision will probably be this one. Salah is still the best right-wing player in the world and is practically unreplaceable. The Reds simply don’t have a good alternative.
The position would subsequently be demoted if he were to be kept for the remainder of his prime. The question is if Liverpool can use the money they received to strengthen the team as a whole.
If Salah decides to go at all. If he doesn’t, it’s a simple choice, and Liverpool probably wants that to happen. Ornstein makes the suggestion that things may be moving in that direction, which is encouraging.
