Said it before, will say it again. Last contract negotiations showed us all how much Salah (and/or his agent) care about money, so if the Saudi's come calling next summer with big wage offers i expect him to take them and go.
If he cared so much about money then why hasn't he forced the club to sell him this summer? Even before the Saudi's came calling, Mo is so huge in the middle east he could've easily given the nod to his agent months ago and offers would've come down pouring. Or better yet, why didn't he just use the fact his contract was running out last summer to go negotiate a fat payday at any of the other clubs that would've gladly invested right into his wages a big chunk of the money they'd normally have to pay in transfer fees to get such a player?
I also don't understand what is this idea of ''the player either signs/re-signs for us at a discount or he's ''greedy'' ''. He's arguably the best player in the league or on par with the best player (De Bruyne) or, if you currently disagree with that statement, he certainly was at that time last summer. So what is the surprise when the best player in the league negotiates a salary that reflects that?
It's sort of tiring to see all that corruption and big money thrown around in world football with parties such as agents, clubs, national and continental associations, etc., all raking in insane amounts of cash for what is not much efforts and nobody bats an eyelid. Then most people turn around and attack the only party in that equation that actually brings
something to the table, the actual talent (the players). If football is going to generate so much money anyway then I much rather the players get paid. Its not like if they get less money the difference will be distributed to charities, its going to go straight into the pockets of those parties I mentioned above. I'd much rather see a player or coach get paid that money, at least I understand that me or 99% of the rest of the population can't put on some football boots and replicate what Salah does or put on some glasses and replicate what Klopp does. Pretty sure the same cannot be said about most of those UEFA, PL, agents and TV crooks.
