Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah will not leave the Premier League club this summer.
This is despite Al-Ittihad trying to lure Salah to the Middle East with a stunning offer.
However, that chase seems to be over, with Foot Mercato reporting that the Egyptian will stay in England for now.
Al-Ittihad made a world-record bid of £215million for Salah, an offer that was understandably extremely tempting to the Liverpool hierarchy.
This will be a blow to the state-owned Saudi Pro League project, following a summer in which top players such as Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino have all swapped Europe for Saudi Arabia.
Salah would’ve been the jewel in the crown for Al-Ittihad, the division’s current champions. However, it seems they will have to look elsewhere for attacking talent before the league’s transfer window closes on September 7.
