Saudis Confirm Transfer Deadline, Liverpool Aims to Retain Salah

The Saudi Pro League has confirmed that it will shut its transfer window on September 7, while Liverpool seems determined to ward off any additional offers for Mohamed Salah.

According to ESPN’s report on Friday, Liverpool turned down an offer potentially reaching £150 million ($190 million) from Al Ittihad for the Egyptian international.

On Friday morning, the Saudi Arabian club made their move by initially offering £100 million for Salah, with added incentives that could have totalled £150 million for Liverpool. However according to reports, the offer for Salah has been declined and the issue is considered closed, with a Liverpool insider stating firmly, “The player is not available for transfer.”

A statement from the Saudi Arabia Football Association on Monday stated: “As previously communicated to Saudi clubs on Friday, June 30, the summer registration period for player transfers in the Roshn Saudi League [Saudi Pro League] will conclude on Thursday, September 7.”

Salah found the net in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday, and Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp asserted that the forward is fully committed to remaining at Anfield this season.

Klopp stated after the game, “He didn’t need to explicitly state whether he wants to stay or not. He communicates his intentions through his training, performance, and behaviour. This week, our discussions were not about our past accomplishments but centered on our future plans.”

Klopp added, “Mo was part of the players’ leadership committee, and during our conversations, there was no indication that he intends to leave in the near future.”

It’s worth noting that some of Salah’s former teammates, including Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mané, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino, have already finalized moves to Saudi Arabian clubs this summer.
