Saudi Pro League champions Al Ittihad are making a new attempt to land Liverpool star Mohamed Salah by tabling a world record 215 million-pound ($270m) offer, according to The Sun.
The British tabloid, which did not cite any sources in its report on Monday, said Al Ittihad officials travelled to the United Kingdom in their latest attempt to sign the 31-year-old Egyptian international before the Saudi transfer window closes on Thursday.
The Sun reported that Salah, the world’s highest profile Arab footballer, has been offered a Saudi Pro League record salary of £2.45m a week.
It also reported Salah had been also offered a significant percentage of shirt sales, a £55,000 win bonus, and ambassadorial roles with at least three major Saudi companies for the duration of his contract.
Last week, the Merseyside club rejected a $189.6m offer for Salah from the Saudi club, which is part-owned by the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF).
After Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, in which Salah scored, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said the club would not sell Salah for any price.
Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson also insisted the squad had “no concerns” about Salah’s departure.
“For us Mohamed Salah is a Liverpool player and we believe that is what is going to be the case for the foreseeable future,” he said.
Salah, who has two years left on a contract signed last year, has scored 188 goals in 309 games for Liverpool since he joined the club in June 2017.
