'Done Deal' - Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has sensationally agreed in principle to join Saudi league

Mohamed Salah’s move from Liverpool to the Saudi Pro League next summer is a “done deal”, sources have told Football Insider.

As revealed on Football Insider‘s YouTube show editor Wayne Veysey has been told a move for the 31-year-old in 2024 is now inevitable.

It is believed the Liverpool star has verbally agreed to join the Saudi Pro League’s increasing ranks of elite stars, with a deal now agreed in principle.

Football Insider revealed on Monday (30 October) that the Merseysiders will not sell Salah in January whatever offer comes in for him.

But a well-placed source has told Football Insider that the player’s head has been turned with a mega-money contract likely to be on offer in the Middle East.

Al-Ittihad were the club to come forward with a bid in the most recent summer window but saw all advances rejected by Liverpool after offering a package worth £150million in total.

But it is now believed a bid of £150million-plus could land Salah at the end of the 2023-24 campaign.

He will turn 32 just days after the season draws to a close, and will have just one year left on his reported £350,000-a-week contract at Anfield.

Salah has notched 10 goals and four assists in 14 appearances across all competitions this season and wore the captain’s armband in Liverpool’s 2-1 League Cup win over Bournemouth on Wednesday (1 November).

The Egypt international will miss several games in the new year as he travels to the African Cup of Nations.

Liverpool and the forward are next in action against struggling Luton on Saturday (4 November).

Jurgen Klopp’s side sit fourth in the Premier League after 10 games.
