Liverpool announce the deal of the summer as Mo Salah signs new 5-year contract – no release clause included

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool have announced that star forward Mohamed Salah has signed a new long-term deal with the Reds just one year after joining us from AS Roma.

Jurgen Klopp was ecstatic with the news and was quoted by the Liverpool website as saying:

“When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.

“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.”

The Egyptian had a wonderful season for us, scoring 44 goals in all competitions as he led us to the Champions League final and also won the Golden Boot in the Premier League.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the 26-year-old star signed a five-year deal at the club and one important aspect of this contract is that it does not feature a release clause for the Egyptian. The report also claims that Salah would be the highest earner at the club, alongside Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk.

Salah was one of the best performers in the world last season and this will come as great news not only for the fans but also for Jurgen Klopp as we look to build on last season’s performance.

We missed out on the Champions League, however, the Egyptian signing for us means other clubs will not be able to lure away the former Chelsea man.

Salah picked up numerous awards at the club last season and this deal should make him hungrier for more success at Anfield.

This is possibly the best news we could have got and next season could really be our season as we look to pick up the league title.
