Saudi Pro League director of football Michael Emenalo says Al-Ittihad will continue to try to sign Mohamed Salah for Liverpool.
Al-Ittihad, the reigning Saudi Pro League champions, wanted to sign Salah in the summer and reportedly made an offer of £150 million which was rejected by the Reds. The Sun then reported that Al-Ittihad would submit another bid for an initial £170 million, rising to £215 million when taking into account various add-ons. The club offered the player a huge salary of £2.45 million ($3 million) per week.

Although the Saudi club failed to sign Salah before the close of the transfer window in England, Pro League director of football Emenelo said that Al-Ittihad will continue their efforts to sign the Egyptian in the future.
addressed to sky gameEmenelo is far from closing the door: ” First of all, Mohamed Salah is one of the best players on the planet. I have already said privately and publicly that whoever wants to come (to SPL) including Salah, we welcome him. But we have to do things in a very professional and respectful manner. That’s what we’re here for, that’s why SPL has been refined – to bring professionalism, respect for efficiency, and to do things efficiently.
“If it doesn’t happen, it’s not because we don’t like the player anymore or we have a problem with Liverpool. This is because certain things need to be aligned for all parties involved in the process, they have not been aligned. No one is upset, we are moving forward, but we are not closing any doors and if the opportunity comes to do things and do them well – and that’s bringing Mohamed Salah to the Saudi Pro League – We will be there. Everyone is very grateful. ,
Salah signed a new contract last summer that runs until 2025 and the Premier League club have so far shown no interest in parting ways with their star player before his contract expires.
