Mohamed Salah could get paid more than Cristiano Ronaldo as Liverpool receive approach from Al Ittihad

The Jeddah-based outfit, coached by Nuno Espirito Santo and current Saudi Pro League champions, are the club most interested in taking Salah from Liverpool this summer.

talkSPORT understands a Salah sale is unlikely this summer, but if it was to happen it’s believed he would become the Saudi Pro League’s highest paid player, surpassing Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Liverpool have already lost key players to Saudi Arabia in Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

The departure of Salah would be the biggest hit of the three, though, considering the importance he has to the team.

The 31-year-old has scored 187 times in 307 appearances for the Reds and was instrumental to Jurgen Klopp’s team that won the Premier Legaue, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
