Liverpool agreed £62m deal with "special" player

Mohamed Salah signed a new contract with Liverpool in the summer to keep him at Anfield until 2025. New reports have revealed how much the deal was worth.

Salah put an end to many months of speculation by signing the new deal, with his existing agreement due to expire in 2023.

The Athletic claimed that the Egypt star is Liverpool's highest-paid player in history, after they submitted a vastly improved offer to convince Salah to sign, following a breakdown in talks last December.

Jurgen Klopp's side also sold Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich, with the extension of Salah seen as a crucial deal last summer.

Speaking after the contract was signed, Salah told the club's official website: "I feel great and excited to win trophies with the club. It's a happy day for everyone.

"It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done, so we just need to focus on what's next."

Liverpool have struggled for form in the Premier League this season, and are sixth in the table heading into the international break.

They have been without a number of players due to injury, although Salah is one that has managed to stay clear of injury thus far.

He has scored six goals in 14 Premier League appearances, with only Roberto Firmino (seven) netting on more occasions.

In the Champions League, Salah has an incredible seven goals to his name in just six appearances. If he continues to score at this rate, he will record more goals than games in the competition for the first time in his career.

But how much are Liverpool paying him as part of his contract?

How much does Mohamed Salah earn at Liverpool?

New reports from Football Insider claim, as per sources, that Liverpool agreed a deal with Salah worth nearly £62 million in the summer.

As well as making him the club's highest-ever player, as initially reported, the contract is also valued at almost £400,000-a-week when bonuses are taken into account.

Klopp described Salah as 'special' following his hat-trick in the 7-1 win over Rangers in the Champions League last month - and it is certainly a major boost for Liverpool to have the player tied down for several years.

The contract could be one of the last major outlays that the club's owners, Fenway Sports Group, sign off for the Reds, given reports that they are looking to attract new investors in Liverpool.

The club's chairman, Tom Werner, confirmed on Saturday that FSG are 'exploring' the sale of the club.
