Abbas, Salah's advisor, has drawn fresh light into the terms of Salah’s £350k (Ksh 60 million), a week’s deal, claiming that there is more than was reported.

Liverpool stalwart Mohamed Salah is earning a jaw-dropping amount of money in excess of one million pounds (Ksh 174 million) a week.

This is according to his agent Rammy Abbas after the Egypt captain finally quashed months of speculation by putting pen-to-paper on a three-year deal in the summer of 2022.

There had been serious doubt over whether or not Salah would extend his stay at Anfield amid transfer interest from other clubs. 

Negotiations were drawn out and full of setbacks which only served to fuel said speculation, even though Salah insisted publicly that he wanted to remain at the club.

Eventually, a resolution which suited all parties was found, understood to be in the region of £350,000 per week.

Even so, Abbas, Salah's advisor, has drawn fresh light on the saga, claiming that there is more than meets the eye and was reported.

Abbas and Salah have both contributed to a Harvard Business School study based around the forward's protracted contract negotiations with Liverpool. 

The study, which has been reported by the Guardian, has revealed the extent to which the 31-year-old was close to leaving Anfield last season.

At one point, Abbas claimed that talks had “broken down entirely” just weeks before a breakthrough was made.

He also made it clear that the sticking point in negotiations were substantial. 

“We are still very far apart. Mohamed isn’t going to throw away his contract because of a 5% difference in what we are asking for and what they are willing to give – it is much more than that, ” Abbas said at the time.

The study failed to find out the exact amount of money Salah earns, but it implies that Salah is the club's highest earner as Liverpool agreed to the demands tabled by Abbas.

It also outlined how Salah's rise to stardom since his move to Liverpool back in 2017 has helped him land significant endorsements with the likes of Adidas, Pepsi, and Gucci amongst others.

“If we find a way to get Liverpool to agree to the salary we have in mind and if Mohamed performs at a level he has achieved in the past seasons, we conservatively expect the total amount received by Mohamed and the image rights companies over the next few years from both his playing contract and his image rights contracts to be somewhere between £46.8m (Ksh 8 billion) and £53.7m (Ksh 9.3 billion) per year.”

Salah may have committed his future to Liverpool until the summer of 2025, but that has not prevented suitors from making their interest in him known.

 Al-Ittihad saw a huge £150 million (Ksh 26.1 billion) bid for the forward rejected by Liverpool during the summer transfer window.

It is expected that the Saudi Arabian side have not lost their interest in the Liverpool icon, and could be expected to come with a more significant bid in the subsequent transfer windows.
