Mo Salah is the highest-paid player in the club’s history

Mohamed Salah’s lawyer and adviser Ramy Abbas has indicated that the forward earns at least £1 million a week in total income from his contract at Liverpool. Ramy Abbas Issa told a Harvard Business School (HBS) study.

Abbas and Salah also detail how close the highest-paid player in the club’s history came to leaving before a new deal.

The negotiations for a possible contract extension started in 2020 and in late June 2022, everything was a doubt. In the study, Abbas says that the negotiations had “broken down entirely.”

Abbas said: “When you have put your requests on the table and you don’t get anything you’ve asked for, you have to start thinking about parting ways.”

There are also a few quotes from Salah as well and he says, “I have been positive about the negotiations from the beginning but now that Ramy told me they have not agreed to anything we wanted, I see things differently. I feel like the club wants me to stay, and I want to stay, but it’s hard to get a deal done.”

The main statement that shows his earnings was,

“If we find a way to get Liverpool to agree to the salary we have in mind and if Mohamed performs at a level he has achieved in the past seasons …” Abbas says, “we conservatively expect the total amount received by Mohamed and the image rights companies over the next few years from both his playing contract and his image rights contracts to be somewhere between €54m [£46.8m] and €62m [£53.7m] per year.”

Mohamed Salah added, ‘Renewing at Liverpool would be one of the biggest milestones of my career.”

How much Liverpool are paying Salah is unclear from the study. Club sources believe he earns more from third parties, such as his commercial tie-ups with Adidas, the Bank of Alexandria in Egypt, PepsiCo, Gucci and the real estate brand Mountain View.
