According to a number of news outlets, Liverpool reportedly turned down an Al Ittihad offer for the Egypt international worth up to £150 million ($190 million) last week.
On the day of the transfer deadline, it was rumored that the Saudi club would try to make a better offer for Salah, but that didn’t happen.
Following the summer deals signed by previous stars Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mané, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino with Saudi teams, Liverpool has been clear that Salah will not be permitted to leave Anfield.
When the transfer window reopens in January, Salah’s future can once again be a topic of discussion.
Following the break for international play, Liverpool’s match against Wolves is when he is most likely to play again.
Salah was expected to be the newest superstar acquisition, but the Saudi window closed quite quietly. Demarai Gray moved from Everton to Al Ettifaq, and Luiz Felipe finished his transfer from Real Betis to Al Ittihad.
With a total investment of $1 billion throughout the summer transfer window, Saudi clubs’ transfer activity has been remarkable enough even without a deal for Salah on the last day.
