So many contradictions and so much bollocks in one post.
Last week I posted "expect a major transfer out in 14 months"
Yesterday morning I explained why Salah's value is ridiculous.
Last night, news of Salah's wandering eye with a 1 year time table gets published.
Just a coincidence?
Lucky connecting of dots on my part?
It's almost as if I'm psychic, or I look at the tea leaves not through fanboy specs, or I just may look at football like an analyst who calculates value and markets (like the owner)............. or I just might know something. (sorry Kenny if this triggers you)
Setting that aside, let's discuss what might make Salah want to leave.
Not too difficult to figure out: Wages
If LFC once again bumps up Mo's pay......expect him to continue his career at LFC for the foreseeable future. If not, offers will flow in that he and his agent will pay attention to. 10 mill is a pittance for a 2 time Golden Boot winner. Never ignore how agents make the bulk of their compensation....not from negotiating pay bumps, especially if a 150 mill transfer is knocking on your door. Think McFly
LFC is sitting in a fantastic position right now. On a valuation to wage scale, Mo is a bargain.
So much potential opportunity available to all parties.
LFC might be able sell a wildly overvalued asset and strengthen its team with the surplus.
Mo might earn elite wages post transfer.
Mo's agent might see a 8 figure commission.
Most interesting will be VvD's potential new deal and how that will viewed in the locker room. Stories get written daily of the astronomical valuations of many LFC players but wages, though solid, are not elite. Every player's window is limited and as the old saying goes...Strike while the iron is hot. Temptations will be abound and LFC can't pay everyone nor do they want an outlier salary on the books unless the player is truly elite.
I hope Mo looks more like the 2017-18 version who could get off his shot regularly with pin point accuracy....not the latest version who was bottled up by defenders, who couldn't find the net in big matches, who turned the ball over at an accelerated rate.
The issue is the valuation not the player.
