Salah becomes Premier League’s highest-paid player

LONDON – Mohammed Salah’s new £400 000-per-week salary at Liverpool makes him one of the best paid footballers across the globe.

Following months of speculation about the Egyptian’s future, the Reds stunned the world by announcing he had agreed a new contract to stay at Anfield until 2025.

Having seen Sadio Mane depart the club for Bayern Munich last month, Jurgen Klopp will be delighted to keep hold of Salah, who has been instrumental in the Reds’ success over recent years.

It is therefore unsurprising that his improved wages make him the highest-paid player in Liverpool’s history.

Salah is also now the biggest earner in the whole of the Premier League, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne, who are on reported salaries of £385 000-per-week.

Manchester City’s newest recruit Erling Haaland is close behind on £375 000-per-week, the same wage as Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Salah, 30, ranks as the fourth highest-paid footballer worldwide but his salary is dwarfed by those ahead of him – all of whom play for Qatari-backed Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar comes in at third-place with £606 000-per-week, but there is then a huge jump to the top two.

Lionel Messi actually took a pay cut when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer, but he is still on a staggering salary of £960 000-per-week.

Lionel Messi actually took a pay cut when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer, but he is still on a staggering salary of £960 000-per-week.

That made the Argentinian superstar the biggest earner in the world until a few weeks ago, when he was overtaken by team-mate Kylian Mbappe.

PSG pulled out all the stops to keep the 23-year-old in the French capital amid heavy interest from Real Madrid and Mbappe eventually signed a new three-year contract with the Ligue 1 side reported to be worth £1million-per-week.

It has always been Salah’s preferred wish to stay on Merseyside, where he has become an icon since joining from Roma in 2017.
