Salah has one year left on his contract left and could leave the club following next transfer window
According to The Mirror, Saudi Pro League teams are anticipated to make another attempt to sign Mohamed Salah from Liverpool during the summer transfer window. Along with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk, the Egyptian is among three Reds players whose deals expire in 2025.
“As their contracts are set to expire in July 2025, Liverpool’s ability to reach a new agreement will be crucial to the Reds’ future after Klopp.
Even without Klopp, it would be a difficult summer, and the loss of director of football Jorg Schmadtke only makes matters worse, as the Mirror notes. After replacing Julian Ward in June, Schmadkte has only been in charge for a year, and it is now evident that he was essentially acting as a caretaker until Klopp’s final season.
As Michael Edwards’ replacement, Ward lasted barely a year, and Liverpool will name their fourth director of football in less than two years. For a team that values consistency so highly—like Liverpool—this cannot be favourable in such a crucial capacity.

This summer, Salah in particular poses a challenge to Liverpool. To avoid losing him for nothing in 2025, should they cash in on him or do they continue to negotiate in the hopes that he would agree to new terms?
During the summer transfer window, Liverpool turned down a £150 million bid from Al-Ittihad, a Saudi Arabian team, and the Premier League will only show more interest.
Al Iittihad are thrilled for one of the greatest players in the world to serve as their new poster boy while he is still at the top of his game. Mohamed Salah will turn 32 in June.
But Liverpool have remained steadfast in their belief that they have no intention of parting ways with the 31-year-old. Salah has till 2025 left on his Liverpool contract.
A portion of the Al Ittihad club administration feels that they ought to accept Liverpool’s choice and wait until next summer when they intend to succeed.
