Mohamed Salah’s lawyer and adviser, Rammy Abbas, has suggested that the Liverpool winger is earning over £1 million per week. This revelation comes after Salah signed a new three-year contract with the Reds last summer, following extensive negotiations with the club.
Initially, there were concerns that Salah would leave Anfield due to disagreements over wages. However, a resolution was reached at the end of the 2021-22 season, and he has since been earning a reported £350,000 per week from the club in wages alone.
Abbas’s comments shed further light on the contract negotiations between Salah and Liverpool. Both Abbas and Salah contributed to a Harvard Business School study that examined the negotiations. In the study, Abbas claimed that talks had “broken down” at one point and suggested that the club would need to meet Salah’s substantial demands to retain him.
According to Abbas, if Liverpool were to meet Salah’s demands, which they eventually did, he would earn more than £1 million per week. This figure includes income from high-profile endorsements with brands like Adidas and Pepsi. Abbas also revealed that if Liverpool agreed to the salary they had in mind and Salah performed at his previous levels, he could expect to earn between €54 million (£46.8 million) and €62 million (£53.7 million) per year from both his playing contract and image rights contracts.
While the exact value of Salah’s current deal is not outlined in the study, he is believed to be Liverpool’s highest earner. However, there is a risk of losing Salah in January due to significant interest from Saudi Arabia. Al-Ittihad made a £150 million bid for him on transfer deadline day, which was rejected. It is reported that club officials are preparing for another bid in the new year.
If Salah were to move to Saudi Arabia, he would earn more than Cristiano Ronaldo, who currently earns around £173 million per year, or over £3 million per week.
In conclusion, Mohamed Salah’s lawyer and adviser have suggested that he is earning over £1 million per week at Liverpool. This information comes after the winger signed a new contract with the club last summer. While there were initial concerns about the negotiations, a resolution was reached, and Salah has become one of Liverpool’s highest earners. However, there is a risk of losing Salah to Saudi Arabia in January, as the club faces significant interest from Al-Ittihad. If he were to make the move, Salah would earn more than Cristiano Ronaldo.
