Liverpool could sell Salah for 'huge fee' after Palmer update - pundit

Liverpool may cash in on Mohamed Salah this summer if he is not interested in signing a new deal.

That is the view of former Spurs and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about reported concern from Reds chiefs over the 29-year-old’s future.

According to Kevin Palmer, writing in the Sunday World (July 20th), key figures at Anfield fear Salah is reluctant to extend his current contract that is due to expire in 2023.

The Egypt international is one of several big names the club are trying to tie down to a new deal, with Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho the other priorities.

Robinson suspects Liverpool may sell Salah in this window if no progress is made in contract negotiations.

“We have been here with Coutinho,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.

“Everybody was panicking when Coutinho left but the side was rebuilt on that money. You look at where they have gone since he left and you would have to say that they are in a better place.

“I am not an advocate of allowing players to run down their contracts. If a contract cannot be done, from a business sense, transfers have to be conducted.

“The fee Liverpool could get for Salah now would be huge. But that will not be the case in 12 months time when he is another year older with just 12 month left on his deal. He could quite easily then leave on a free.”
