Mo Salah’s monstrous wage demands to pen new Liverpool deal revealed
An insight into the kind of money being sought out by Liverpool standout Mohamed Salah amid ongoing contract talks with the club has been provided on Monday.
The Egyptian king shining
The subject of Salah’s future has of course taken its position centre stage in the media over recent weeks.
This comes amid Liverpool’s efforts to tie their star man down for the long-term.
The early weeks of the season have seen Salah establish himself as not only the Premier League’s standout performer but, in the eyes of many, the most in-form player in world football.
After netting a goal of the season contender during a showdown with champions Manchester City prior to the international break, the Egyptian international followed up with another dazzling effort this past weekend, en route to a 5-0 drubbing of Watford:

All told, across the 2021/22 campaign to date, Salah has racked up ten goals and four assists in just ten appearances.
Mo’s massive demands
As such, it should come as little surprise to hear that those in a position of power at Anfield have begun stepping up their efforts to tie the gifted wide-man down for the foreseeable future.
Salah’s current terms on Merseyside are due to expire in the summer of 2023, opening the door to a potential departure down the line.
As outlined above, though, if Liverpool do indeed intend to satisfy the demands of their talismanic attacker, then they will need to pay up.
This comes amid claims on the part of The Telegraph on Monday that Salah has requested a sum in the region of £400,000-per-week to commit his long-term future to the Reds.
Such a monstrous outlay would see the 29-year-old become, by some distance, the highest paid player at Anfield.
