Official: Mohamed Salah signs new Liverpool contract to become 'best paid player in club's history'

Premier League giants Liverpool have, on Friday, confirmed that star attacker Mohamed Salah has committed his long-term future to the club.

The name of wide-man Salah has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines on the red half of Merseyside for some time now.

This comes with the Egyptian's terms having been due to expire in just 12 months' time, and Salah having time and time again refused to reiterate his commitment to the cause as part of Jurgen Klopp's squad over the course of this past season.

With attacking partner in crime Sadio Mane having already called time on his Anfield stint in favour of linking up with Bayern Munich this summer, those of a Liverpool persuasion were therefore left to mull over the daunting prospect of both of the club's star attackers finding new homes within the space of a solitary year.

As alluded to above, though, on Friday, any such fears have been put to bed once and for all.

As per an official statement across the club's website and social media platforms, Salah has penned a new deal with Liverpool, through the summer of 2025.

Speaking on the back of the news being made public, the prolific winger had the following to say:

“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”

*Update* - An insight has since too been provided into the financial terms of Salah's deal, with the former Chelsea man having become the 'best paid player in Liverpool's history', courtesy of an eye-watering £350,000+per-week wage packet.
