Mohamed Salah’s agent has dismissed speculation that the Liverpool attacker could join the exodus to Saudi Arabia this summer.
Reports in the Middle East claimed that Al Ittihad are prepared to pay a fee of £60million ($76.3m) and offer the Egypt international around £155m in wages over the course of two years.
However, his representative, Ramy Abbas, insists that Salah has no interest in ending his six-year stay at Anfield.
Salah, 31, signed a new three-year contract last summer which made him the highest-paid player in the club’s history on around £350,000 per week.
“If we considered leaving LFC this year, we wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer. Mohamed remains committed to LFC,” Abbas posted on social media.
Liverpool have already lost two experienced players to Saudi Arabia this summer. Captain Jordan Henderson moved to Al Ettifaq for £12 million prior to Fabinho completing a £40 million switch to Al Ittihad.
Salah, who scored 30 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season, was recently promoted to the club’s leadership group by Jurgen Klopp.
