Salah wants to leave Liverpool and replace Ronaldo as the highest paid player in the world

Mohamed Salah is said to want to leave Liverpool amid interest from Saudi Arabian Super League side Al-Ittihad.

Salah has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia throughout the summer, with the Saudi country securing deals for many European football stars throughout the summer.

Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, Brazilian sensation Neymar Jr and former Liverpool star Sadio Mane have all moved to Saudi Arabia this summer, months after Cristiano Ronaldo made a move to Al Nassr in January.

Liverpool forward Salah could be the next player among Europe’s elite to move to the emerging league.

According to Spanish outlet Relevo, the Liverpool star wants to leave the English club after being offered the most lucrative salary in the entire Saudi Arabian Super League.

Al-Ittihad representatives have allegedly met with Salah’s representatives and will offer the Egyptian a higher salary than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The club are said to be confident that Salah will be lured by the prospect of playing in a Muslim country along with his attractive salary.

The report comes a day after journalist Rudy Galetti claimed that Al Ittihad had submitted a bid to Liverpool which, if accepted, would break the Saudi Super League transfer record held by Neymar Jr.
