Luis-Alberto-Liverpool-Deportivo-La-Coruña

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp brought in seven new players in the squad this summer as the Reds manager prepared for his first full season at the Anfield. The German manager managed to offload the players whom he deemed to be surplus to the requirement on the deadline day of the summer transfer window.

The Reds midfielder Luis Alberto has followed Mario Balotelli and lazar Markovic out of the Anfield this summer.

The Spanish attacking midfielder joined the Reds in June 2013 from Seville on a deal worth £6.8m. The player went on to make 12 appearances for Liverpool during the 2013-2014 campaign. However, he spent the subsequent campaign on a loan deal at the La Liga club Malaga. Alberto spent the last season at Deportivo La Coruna, also on loan.

The player has now completed his move to the Serie A club Lazio on a deal worth £4.3m, being one of the few whom Liverpool offloaded on the deadline day. Alberto has nineteen goals to his credit through his career.

How Mo salah compares to the worlds top 20 earners

Published

on

For much of 2017, 2018, and 2019, it’s been fair to say that the attacking trio of Liverpool FC is among the best in the world. Their attack has often been lauded as the most fluent and functional attack in the world game, with Roberto Firmino the front of the three-pronged attack. On his sides are Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. However, would you be shocked to find out that you could trade the wages of Neymar Jr, and pay Mane, Firmino, and Salah? And still have some money left over?

Neymar is on around $105m/year at the moment according to the sports betting site . Despite being happy to take a wage drop to go back to FC Barcelona, the move failed and instead he remained in Paris. His wage is a whopping $80m ahead of Salah himself, who manages to pull in $25.1m per year. To contrast, Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann are both expected to earn more, with the duo earning around $27.1m a year based on reports. With bookmakers sponsoring a large number of Premiership and Champions League teams its no surprise they can afford to spend such obscene amounts of money.

In the Premier League, though, only Mesut Ozil of Arsenal ($30.2m) and Paul Pogba of Manchester United ($33m) earns more than Salah. In total he ranks as the 12th highest paid player in the world at present. Premier League former stalwart Alexis Sanchez is on the list, though he now plays in Italy with Internazionale.

The Egyptian, though, is currently the highest paid player at Liverpool. It’s estimated that Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, and Allison Becker are all close to his wage. In the list of the top 20 earners in world football, though, Salah is the only Liverpool player to be listed.

Who else earns close to what Salah brings in?

On the list provided, the next player after Salah is Angel di Maria. The Argentina on around $23.7m per year is the fourth player to be from Paris Saint-Germain on this list – they are the team with the most members on the list. Another surprise, though, is that two players from China alone – Graziano Pelle and Oscar – are both on the list. Oscar actually earns more than Salah, showing the disparity in earning potential in Asia versus Europe for .

The lowest paid player on the list is that of Gerard Pique, who has to make do on a “paltry” $21.7m. Outside of Salah, the only other Premier League player to appear on this list is that of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

The Argentina striker earns around $22.6m and is the only player to take part in the English top flight. On the list, you notice an immediate collection of nationalities who are among the highest earners: Brazil, France, and Spain. Given all three are among the most successful international teams in history, that should come as little surprise.

For Salah, though, he flies the flag for other African players who are looking to make a name for themselves. Without doubt, he’s an icon and an inspiration for many in the African game and beyond.

Brentford B boss Neil MacFarlane believes that Hardy’s move to Liverpool will only help the player.

“He’s perhaps come to the end of his time with the club in terms of the strategy, and to go to a club the size of Liverpool can only be good for him. “

“The club are flying at the moment, they’re European champions, and potential Premier League winners, so being in and around that environment can only be good for Joe.”

Hardy is likely to link up with Neil Critchley’s Under-23 squad for the second half of the season.

With Rhian Brewster set to leave on loan and Paul Glatzel out injured, Hardy is likely to find game time easy to come for the Liverpool U23s.
