Transfer: You must accept £200m offer for Salah – Carragher warns Liverpool
Jamie Carragher, a former defender for Liverpool, has advised the team that it cannot turn down a £200 million bid for Mohamed Salah.
Al-Ittihad had already made a bid of about £150 million, which the Reds rejected.
Salah helped Liverpool win the Premier League and Champions League after he moved to Anfield in 2017 for £43 million.
However, given how tardy the Saudis arrived at the negotiation table, Carragher has questioned whether a deal will actually be reached.
He said on Sky Sports: “When you look at what Harry Kane went for, about £100m, and he is a year or two younger, but he only had a year to go on his deal at Spurs, Salah has two years to go; he looks after himself really well. For Liverpool to sell now, they aren’t going to want what he is worth; they will want more than that.
“He wouldn’t be worth £150 million without the Saudi market, probably closer to £100 million. But why have they left it so late? If they wanted him so badly and were prepared to spend the money, why didn’t they do it six months ago when they might have gotten him?
“It is up to Liverpool, and it is up to Salah; he may not want to go. I think even for supporters who love him and don’t want him to move, if that number keeps going up and up, there is a stage where they can’t turn it down, and that would be £200m.”
