Fabrizio Romano makes strong claims on Liverpool wage structure and how it affects Mohamed Salah new contract
The Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Liverpool are not willing to break their wage structure for Mohamed Salah’s new contract.
The Italian journalist says the financial aspect of the deal is the only stumbling block in negotiations.
As things stand, the liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has less than 18 months remaining on his current contract at Anfield.
Romano stated that the reds would have to find a neutral ground between offering Salah wages that he cannot refuse and maintaining their wage structure.
However, it is important to note that It is both the club and the player intend to maintain their relationship for the foreseeable future.
Writing in his column for Anfield Watch, Romano had this to say about Salah’s contract situation at Liverpool:
“The Salah issue is therefore exclusively linked to the financial aspect. He wants to stay and Liverpool naturally want to keep their star player, but what is needed is an economical agreement.
“Liverpool do not intend to change their salary structure which has given them so much satisfaction in recent years.”
“They are ready to make Salah the highest paid player in the team, but they do not want to take his salary too far away from those of his important teammates.”
According to the aforementioned source, Salah has no intentions of leaving Anfield in the upcoming window.
The 29-year-old only wants a pay rise, which some might say he deserves based on his recent form.
