    Is he really?
    He's somewhere below the Messi and Ronaldo bracket.

    There are lesser players earning more than that.

    Not a chance. He and his agents know what our level is.

    Firstly, given the astronomical wages that show up in our accounts, I seriously doubt the likes of Salah are on the reported 200k a week. I suspect he already makes something in the region of 350k with all the bonuses etc. That's what the likes of de Bruyne make, so no reason Salah will be on for something significantly less.

    I wouldn't at all be surprised that his agent wants 500k, nor would I be surprised to see us agree to a contract where he ends up making 400k+ a week.

    If the likes of Mbappe and Haaland want like a 1 million a week, can you really blame his agent for asking for 500k?

    He’s not getting that so if he won’t sign, cash in.

    We’ve lost players just as good and gone on to be better off because of it.

    Team comes first.

    It also begs the question what his agent wants too?

    The other scenario is that we simply let his contract run down...so we get this season and next season out of him...hell be 31 I think by that time?  I know Salah is a great player but I don't think tying him down to a long contract worth 500k a week into his mid 30 is a good deal for us. Rinse him and then let him go to the team that he desires.

    This is a good plan, not being horrible but I have seen a slight decline in him in the past two seasons anyway.  There is no way we should sign him up on an expensive contract for that long.  He will not last that long at the top.

    £500k a week is astronomical but it's also the going rate for one of the best forwards in the game. I don't think we will pay it and I think it means he will be sold next summer. I'd rather keep him but there's no way the club is going to take that sort of financial hit.

    Can't blame him for wanting it when looking at some of the other top paid players and what they deliver compared to him.

    Maybe he just gave FSG a reason to sell

    Well... he’s one of the few that could be used to fund a couple of decent signings.

    Maybe PSG might fancy him next season after Mbappe goes to Real.

    $120m+ could fund the likes of Doku, Bellingham & Bissouma in one hit.

    Sports science or not, he will be 31 when his current deal expires.
    It would not be wise to sign him up on such a massive deal.

    Based on media reports, this is what some of Salah's peers in the Premier League are earning:

    Ronaldo - 480k (plus bonuses, image rights etc.)
    Lukaku - 450k
    Grealish - 380k
    De Bruyne - 375k
    De Gea - 375k
    Aubameyang - 350k
    Sterling - 300k
    Kane - 300k

    The same reports will have you believe that Salah is on 200k a week, which I call bullshit. I'm certain that he's in the de Bruyne range already, and is probably now looking for something in the Lukaku range.
