Mohamed Salah's Huge Contract Details Revealed, He Could Earn More Than Previously Thought

Mohamed Salah could earn more than £400,000 per week at Liverpool if performance-related bonuses are paid in his new contract at Anfield.

Salah, 30, committed his long-term future to Liverpool by signing a new three-year deal with the club on Friday following months of protracted contract negotiations.

The Egypt international becomes the highest-paid player in Liverpool's history after signing his new deal, with the majority of reports claiming he is set to earn £350,000 per week under the terms of his new contract.

However, a fresh report from the Liverpool Echo claims the forward could end up earning significantly more than that figure if he continues to perform well.

The report, which claims to provide the 'inside story' of Salah's contract negotiations with Liverpool, says the Egyptian has agreed to a 'highly-incentivised' deal that could 'exceed the £400,000 mark if his performance-based criteria is met'.

The criteria reportedly centres around goal involvements and contributions, which are said to be viewed as 'attainable' by Salah.

It is claimed that the broad structure of the contract was agreed upon around the turn of the year during talks in the United States.

A set of revised demands from Salah's team was sent to Liverpool earlier this year before negotiations quietened down as the team went in pursuit of the quadruple in the final months of the season.

No significant talks were held around the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, given the importance of the match and the subsequent fallout from the security trouble which marred the final and affected thousands of Liverpool supporters.

However, a deal was finally agreed this week, ending months of speculation surrounding Salah's future.

The report also revealed the extraordinary lengths that Liverpool went to as the club attempted to avoid leaks while conducting the final stages of the contract negotiations.

A delegation, led by sporting director Julian Ward, was sent to visit Salah at his summer holiday destination to finalise the deal – the majority of which was agreed between Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon and Salah's agent Ramy Abbas in Miami at the turn of the year.

The report claims those on the trip were 'sworn to secrecy' to avoid the news leaking out before the club could finalise the deal and officially announce it.

In an interview released after the contract was announced, Salah said he was "ready to go again" after last season, which saw Liverpool win the FA Cup and Carabao Cup but narrowly miss out on the Premier League and Champions League trophies.

"We had some disappointments, but this is football," Salah told Liverpool's website.

"I have enjoyed my football here at the club and hopefully I will continue to enjoy it and win many trophies."
