Mirror for Liverpool on the authority of Mohamed Salah: Whoever controls the king controls the kingdom
The British proverb says, “He who controls the king controls the kingdom.” Therefore, the British newspaper, Mirror, sees in its report on the Egyptian international Mohamed Salah, the English Premier League’s top scorer, that Liverpool cannot currently control the player after he reached the last stop in the contract at the end of next season.
Mohamed Salah, who presented himself to the English Premier League as a Roman emperor in the 2017-2018 season, after he managed to score 44 goals in his first season, to be crowned, according to the ancient newspaper, king of Anfield in a very short period.
And the newspaper pointed out that Mohamed Salah, despite officially announcing his desire to stay at Anfield Castle, is still a headache in the head of VIPs in Liverpool, and that Reds chiefs and supporters alike are still unaware of the illusions that his announcement is hardly a definitive answer to the question looming in The horizon is unanswered: to stay or to go?
And the Mirror exclusively reported that no one but Barcelona has promised to sign Salah next summer for free, providing him with the kind of bumper wages he is currently demanding on Merseyside, with the latest proposal prompting him to make a turn in his future, after he previously told his friends that he was ready to meet with Liverpool. By signing a new deal.
But the links with the move to Spain are not actually something new, as the former Chelsea player has long been flirting with the idea of venturing into the League, so the newspaper sees in its report that the departure of Mohamed Salah to the Spanish League will be a rare disgrace for German coach Jurgen Klopp and the Reds management if they allow him to leave.
Within four months of last year, Salah gave two exclusive interviews to Madrid-based newspaper Marca, whose links to Real Madrid cannot be ignored. Since elite footballers rarely give one-on-one interviews, his decision raised eyebrows back home, where he claimed his future was “out of his hands”. “It’s not up to me,” Salah said. “We will see what happens.”
Meanwhile, the Spanish website Sport claims that FC Barcelona, and the money-rich Paris Saint-Germain, are the steps of Salah’s dream if he were to leave Liverpool, as he allegedly has no intention of striking a new deal.
In particular, his comments with global magazine GQ made headlines last January as Salah went into defense amid reports that he was demanding as much as £400,000 a week to sign a new contract. The captain of the Egyptian national team confirmed: “I want to stay, but it is not in my hands, it is in their hands, I do not ask for crazy things,” asking the Reds to pay what he thinks he deserves.
With the season winding down, the saga is back at the top of the debate at Liverpool and hasn’t been helped by the fact that longtime attacking partner Sadio Mane suddenly wants out with one year left on his deal as well.
