The Saudi newspaper revealed that Ittihad Jeddah will offer Liverpool £100 million to allow the Egyptian star to wear Ittihad Jeddah’s jersey.

The 31-year-old star has garnered significant interest from Ittihad Jeddah, who are reportedly prepared to offer him a record-breaking salary, potentially making him the world's highest-paid player.

Moreover, Skysports reported that Ittihad Jeddah’s deal could reach £150m to sign Salah on the last day of the summer transfer window.

Salah has reportedly accepted the offer on the condition that Liverpool management and coach Jurgen Klopp agree to let him go, according to Saudi Arabia's newspaper Ariyadhiah on Thursday.

Until recently, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp and agent Ramy Abbas have repeatedly reaffirmed Salah's commitment to the club.
