With a new weekly wage of £400,000 at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah is now one of the highest-paid footballers in the world.
Liverpool shocked the world on Friday when they announced that Egypt midfielder Mohamed Salah had agreed to an extension of his contract at Anfield through the year 2025.
Klopp would be thrilled to keep Salah, who has been crucial to the Reds’ recent success, after Sadio Mane left the club for Bayern Munich last month.
As a result, it’s no surprise that he’s now the highest-paid Liverpool player ever.
As a result of his new contract, the Egypt international will be paid the most in Liverpool history.
On top of all that, Salah has now overtaken Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne to become the highest-paid player in the English Premier League.
Erling Haaland, the City’s newest hire, earns the same as Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea: £375,000 per week.
As the fourth highest-paid footballer in the world, Mohamed Salah’s income dwarfs that of the three Paris Saint-Germain players ahead of him.
With a salary of £606,000 a week, Neymar finishes in third, but there is a huge leap to the top two.
French forward Kylian Mbappe’s PSG salary of £1,000,000 per week makes him the world’s richest soccer player.
After moving from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Lionel Messi actually saw his income fall by £750,000, although he still makes a whopping £960,000 each week.
