Where Mohamed Salah ranks in Premier League’s top earners after new Liverpool deal

“Salah  stays!” That was the statement Mohamed Salah delivered in a pre-recorded video released by the club’s official Twitter account after confirming a new contract with Liverpool.

The 30-year-old had finally signed a three-year contract, and he didn’t even have to leave his vacation destination to do so after a delegation lead by Sporting Director Julian Ward flew out to secure his signature.

Salah’s vacation location looked great and likely cost a pretty penny to visit. So why not? Because the prolific winger has recently agreed to a substantial pay increase, significantly enhancing what was already a more than comfortable wage package.

Salah’s pay has reportedly increased from £200,000 per week to a very pleasant figure of roughly £350,000 per week, making him the best paid player in Liverpool Football Club ever.

In short, he’ll easily knock off next summer’s All Inclusive.

Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas was reportedly seeking for roughly £400,000 per week for his client, but the Liverpool star can still earn a large sum on top of his base salary by meeting a number of milestones, both individually and as a team.

So, how does this compare to Salah’s rivals in the Premier League in terms of earnings? According to TalkSPORT’s highest-paid chart, the result is not at the top of the tree, but it is not far off.

Only four players have better base contracts. If Liverpool were to equal Cristiano Ronaldo’s weekly wage of £510,000 at Manchester United, they would have to completely eliminate their wage structure. 

It’s no surprise that his teammates rarely bother to join him in celebrating goals.

Kevin De Bruyne, like Salah, has been one of the most consistently great Premier League players for some time now, and playing for a club owned by an Abu Dhabi private equity business means the Belgian leaves training every week with £400,000 in his pocket.

Erling Haaland, De Bruyne’s new teammate, was brought to Manchester City to score goals. Even if he fails to score a goal next season, he won’t be too concerned because he’ll still be earning a hefty £375,000 per week.

David de Gea, a player whose job it is to keep goals out rather than score them, joins him at the same pay grade. 

The Manchester United goalkeeper was previously thought to be the best in the world, but with the Red Devils allowing 57 goals in the Premier League last season, he’s unlikely to obtain another contract like his last one.

Salah may still overtake De Bruyne, Haaland, and De Gea on the table thanks to his generous incentive package, simply by continuing to do what he has done so effectively for Liverpool since his arrival: score goals and win major titles.

And, based on the shape he’s been able to maintain as he enters his 30s, there’s no reason to expect he’ll do anything else.

Value for money? We’ll know in three years.
