Mohamed Salah put pen to paper on a new Liverpool contract on Friday afternoon, set to keep him at Anfield until 2025.
On the back of Salah signing a new deal with the Merseysiders, it has been revealed that the Egyptian is now earning a wage of around £350,000-a-week – making him the highest-paid player in the history of the club.
Said sum is also believed to be around £130,000-a-week more than Liverpool’s previous highest earner, Virgil van Dijk, took home, meaning it will be interesting to see how the Reds handle contract negotiations for their current star performers and new signings going forward, as they have set a new precedent with Salah’s latest contract.
