Salah Transfer Saga: Al Ittihad’s Pursuit of Liverpool’s Star
In the bustling world of football transfers, the rumour mill never stops. And at the heart of recent speculations is none other than Liverpool’s talisman, Mohamed Salah.
Al Ittihad’s Ambitious Move
A few weeks back, the grapevine was abuzz with whispers of Al Ittihad’s keenness to secure Salah’s signature. Such a move would undoubtedly be a statement of intent from the Saudi Pro League side, especially considering Salah’s stature in the footballing world.
Agent’s Swift Response
However, Ramy Abbas Issa, Salah’s representative, was quick to douse the flames of these rumours. He stated, “If we considered leaving LFC this year, we wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer. Mohamed remains committed to LFC”. This was a clear indication of Salah’s loyalty to the Merseyside club.
