Liverpool give in to Roma’s demands and submit improved bid for Salah

Egypt international Mohamed Salah’s move to English giants Liverpool is nearing completion after Liverpool give in to AS Roma demands.

Mohamed Salah is set to finalise his move to Liverpool after the club’s acceptance of AS Roma’s fee for the Egyptian winger.

Salah’s ongoing transfer saga to Liverpool has hit highs and lows but the club will submit a bid in the region of Roma’s valuation tomorrow, KingFut understands.

Ramy Abbas, Salah’s agent, arrived to England to hold crunch talks with the club and KingFut sources confirm that Liverpool have finally accepted that they’d have to break the bank to sign the winger.

Salah, who turned 25 this week, has had his best-ever season since going professional, scoring 19 goals in all competitions for Roma, despite missing almost a month and a half due to his presence with the Egyptian national team for the Africa Cup of Nations. At the AFCON in Gabon, Salah was involved in four of Egypt’s five goals with 2 goals and 2 assists as he led the Pharaohs to the finals, where they lost 2-1 to Cameroon.

It is worth noting that the Italians initially put a €50 million price tag for their star player, with Roma sporting director Monchi confirming this week than an offer had already been received from an ‘English club’ for Salah, but the club would not sell until their valuation was met.

Their first bid for the player came at £28.5 million, which was immediately rejected by Roma as they demanded a figure between £35 million to £40 million to part ways with Salah.

Sources confirm to KingFut that the next bid for Salah would be a record-fee €45 million, subject to approval, medical check ups and personal terms.

It is worth noting that the former Chelsea winger was one of only eight players in Europe’s top five league to record double figures for goals and assists last season.

    Ok, so we’ve nearly signed him, but not signed him. Giz me a bell when it’s done…:)

  • Jason Patel

    I think this guy will make a big difference to our team. Klopp will have the option to play both speedy wingers and move Coutinho deeper to pull the strings.

  • jolive

    I don’t think transfer windows are going to be something to look forward to until we fully trust Klopp. I think most of us were underwhelmed when he got Wini for instance, but if you ask fans of other teams, they’d happily take him off us. It would be interesting to see what people would think of Couts now, if we’d paid 60m for him, would he sell more shirts for instance.

    • MentalAndBookmarked

      doesn’t talking to other teams’ fans destroy space & time?

      • jolive

        Note the word ‘if’, i don’t, i treat them like the great un-washed that they are. I prefer being wildly over-confident, but then with Aubama on his way, why wouldn’t i be.

  • Drewster

    Maybe we should put a bid in for Salah, I hear he is available

  • Riiseandshine

    Apparently Mendy to Shitty had hit the skids…finger out Edwards!..

    • jolive

      Urr, do i have to

  • Riiseandshine

    Reading some (bullshit) online stories about transfer news and lots of sites/articles stating LFC should sign aubameyang. They claim it would “make a statement.” I think it’s pretty evident at this stage of the game that FSG have only got interest in one kind of statement..a bank statement. I reckon if we sign Salah, that’s the highest transfer fee we’ll pay this Summer. In fact I’d bet my own money on it…every summer starts off the same way, full of confidence. Then it gradually fizzles away, not helped by a weak ass apology. Then the usual cheerleaders bang on about how we’ll do great things “the window isn’t open yet!”..it’s not a real “window” lads!. Then we sign some second tier players with potential to reach the level we’re already at and nobody that really takes us up a notch…this summer would be a nice time to change it the fuck up lads! Maybe for once sign a player that excites fans and makes us believe you actually want us to challenge for titles..that’d be nice

    • jalkapallo

      The kind of deals you want usually take longer to complete. So be patient 🙂

      • Riiseandshine

        If they sign aubameyamg i’d shut up for five years..the lack of football is getting to me 😂 Not angry about transfers , just not very excited by the players linked

        • jalkapallo

          Don’t promise what you can’t keep, 5 years? You? Never!! 🙂

          • Riiseandshine

            Scout’s honour…🤞🏻🙂

          • jalkapallo

            He,he

          • KeithSA

            girl-guide is more appropriate 🙂 with your desire for a big one

    • Christian

      I remain optimistic, we will get some good players for sure, like Mane, Gini, Matip, Karius.

      • Riiseandshine

        Yeah maybe so. I just want a really big one for once. A player that will make fans if other teams crap their pants..😂

        • Pierre Levert

          Problem is some of the players who many of us would like such as Aubameyang, would make FSG crap theirs

          • Riiseandshine

            There-in lies the problem

        • KeithSA

          Like Shevchenco did at Chelsea and Pogba at United? I just want the players that Klopp has identified like the Mane’s of this world who actually do make teams shit themselves not because of the price tag but because they can play

          • Pierre Levert

            Shevchenco without doubt, but as much as I dislike both Pogba and his club, I wouldn’t write him off just yet, Mané is certainly the bright spot of our dealings since Suarez left, but Aubameyang would really light up the team and the fans.
            If Salah is the main man of Klopp’s identified targets then he will know far more than me and let’s get it done, but I still have the feeling that VVD was his prime target.to begin begin with.

          • KeithSA

            I would wait until we finish our business before I judge. Paying 90 mill for Pogba was sheer madness regardless of how good a player he is and he is a good player

          • Pierre Levert

            That has upped the fees to what we are seeing now, I have no idea what the record spend is over a summer window in the Prem., but I shall be very surprised if this season doesn’t go way past anything we have seen before, especially if Ronaldo can’t find his dummy that he spat out again.

          • KeithSA

            i really hope he does not go back to United

          • Pierre Levert

            His options would be extremely limited, Barca-impossible, that only leaves a couple of possibilities, unless he ends up inside for tax evasion, guess that’s even more impossible.

          • KeithSA

            he will stay at Madrid

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            he’s a good player when he’s got time and space, otherwise he’s pretty ordinary. On the other hand we have players who can really handle an intense game as we showed the top 8 teams.

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            yep, it should have been too given our defensive record. so we’ll see how that affects things. If you’re not going to go big on VVD, perhaps that means we’ll chuck a bucketful at Keita or something ie change tack with the size of bid due to how things have worked out.
            Shame soton didn’t get stubborn when we went in for Lovren.

          • Riiseandshine

            Ah coulda shoulda woulda..for those examples there’s examples of players that came in and changed teams…you’re obsessed with price tag I’m talking top level on the pitch. That comes with s big price, so be it

          • jolive

            We all know Klopp won’t want a finished article mate, VVD was the closest we would’ve come to making a statement of intent.

          • Riiseandshine

            The Klopp excuse. As if he’d turn down a complete player if offered one

          • jolive

            I know where you’re coming from but it’s not an excuse coz i’m still on the fence. The bloke himself has said that he doesn’t normally go back for ex-players like Mkatarian because he has maxed them out and knows what their limit is.

          • Riiseandshine

            Sounds like he was diplomatic and resisted calling Henry a lazy shit (which is why they fell out at Dortmund). Why would he go back for gotze otherwise? I’m not angry, they’ll do it their way and that’s fine..would just like that bit of excitement instead of hoping for players to perform above their level

          • Brighton Red

            exactly right about Mkhitaryan, now if it was Auba I think he’d take him like a shot if he could get him ~ fingers crossed on that ( I dream on !! )

          • Riiseandshine

            We all dream on man 😉

    • Stan Dinaround

      Little rays of sunshine do my nut too…

      • Riiseandshine

        5 yrs on and I’ve yet to eat my
        words..but every summer I’m in the wrong about FSG and what they’ll spend? Klopp
        Is the best thing that ever happened the FSG cheerleaders, now they can pretend that FSG would invest in top tier players but Klopp doesn’t want them to..

      • KeithSA

        Agree its much better to read negative comments even if we have not yet finished our transfer activity. Where you happy with who we brought in last year?

        • Stan Dinaround

          Its never better to read negative comments all the time, but its even worse to have to read the same over joyed what ifs we get every single window, only to watch as they shrink away into excuses like, the player wanted too much, or cost too much, or there was a WC so he wasnt available… Most other big clubs get their business done with a minimum of fuss… Just not ours.

    • 44yearsAfan

      I got a story for ya via EOTK, vvd chats with a fan and says yes to LFC transfer when asked if he is coming to us, dunno if its true or not but av a mooch n judge for yourself riise. It puts this saga in the kammy bracket.

      • Riiseandshine

        Hmm. Must look it up..I’d love if I was wrong and the deal was on..just don’t see it

        • 44yearsAfan

          You can only look and see mate, i dont know what to make of this myself, very wierd that he should tell someone he is coming yet nothing is published anywhere except this

          • Riiseandshine

            Yeah pretty strange. A lot like the Adam Lallana situation. Signing Liverpool gear before he’d signed

          • 44yearsAfan

            What ya reckon, someone avin a laff or genuine ?

          • Riiseandshine

            Think it’s clutching at straws to be honest. Given the situation I doubt vvd would say yes even if it was going ahead 😄

          • 44yearsAfan

            Its a good un tho eh !

          • Riiseandshine

            Yeah. Funny if it’s true 😂

          • 44yearsAfan

            Hah, just seen another 1, this is beginning to pick up pace, the plot thickens 🤔

          • Riiseandshine

            Reckon eotk are delighted to be getting some good hits off that story

          • 44yearsAfan

            Haha, yeh itll certainly stir up a lot of activity once it goes LFC viral,

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            it’s a kid. you just say yes. it’s easier that way.

          • 44yearsAfan

            I know but the story is great for the tabloids and for the restless fans we have picking up on every tiny scrap of hope. This is going to be a long fun summer, ☹

    Slow news weeks…feels like the TC is in hibernation.

    • Stan Dinaround

      Licking their wounds…

      • Prince

        Crying in a corner…

    • MentalAndBookmarked

      the club get busy and the fanbase go nuts complaining about how they do their business. they shut up and it’s back to “they’ll never spend that” type comments.
      Can’t win.

      • Prince

        Just meant it was awfully quite 🙂

        And no there is no way to please everybody…

    • Brighton Red

      you never know they may ~ repeat may ~ be trying to get things done on the quiet ( if that is possible these days ) after the VVD cock up

      • Prince

        Probably scheming and plotting right now 🙂

        • Brighton Red

          lets hope so eh ~ Auba tommorrow ???????????
          http://www.101greatgoals.com/news/transfers/liverpool-pierre-emerick-aubameyang/

          ssshhh keep it quiet !!!

          • Prince

            Not a word…

            Personally I’ll prefer a left back above VVD…make that two left backs hehe

          • Brighton Red

            I’d agree ~ if it’s Mendy ~ it couldn’t be could it ?? ………………………………….

          • Prince

            As long it’s a natural left back….would be something ehhh to have a real left back…

  • RedNeve

    I said a few days back (Jokingly) that it looks like we have to sell to buy. The way things are going I don’t think it was far from the bloody truth…!!!

    • Pierre Levert

      If Sakho goes, plus 3 or 4 others that could be in the region of 50-60 million.

      • Riiseandshine

        That’ll buy us five 10m teenagers

      • RedNeve

        Yes Pierre but, I thought we had funds available without what we accrued from sales

        • Pierre Levert

          We should have, time will tell.

  • Bjorn

    40 mil for a player who turned us down once, who will go to afcon…great.

  • Pierre Levert

    I ‘m beginning to think that there is a time scale here which increases in relation to the fees involved,
    right let’s see, Wisdom between £2:5–4 million took about 4 days, so let me think, £35–40 million takes erm, complicated equation here!, well, a long time anyway…….

    • Quicky Zebra

      So we have to sell Wisdom before we can submit an improved bid for Salah. Let’s start selling Markovic, moreno,Sakho, Stewart etc so that we can bid for VVD. 😂

      • SirLEoAnfieldHeart

        I don’t think you understand his statement at all.

        • Quicky Zebra

          Oh I do understand what he means.. City has 2 deals done and we’re still haggling over the Salah deal just like Konoplyanka and the initial salah deal previously..

  • Riiseandshine

    Kingfut….😳😳..😂😂😂😂 okay!

    • Ian96

      Ditto mate. Damn right.

      • KeithSA

        You two are a joy of positive thinking and it will come back to bite your collective arses:)

        • Riiseandshine

          Aww Keith 😂 I said I don’t care who we sign..Don’t you go getting hysterical about me not caring now..😉

        • Ian96

          My arse likes being bitten, just as long as the one biting has pouted lips n big baps, this i can live with.

          • Pierre Levert

            Oi, I saw her first that barmaid at the Cavern…..

          • Ian96

            Haha, she was pretty fit.😀

          • Pierre Levert

            Well, how many pints did we have!?, probably too many…

          • Ian96

            We had 5 pints, next time you are in Liverpool lets make it 6.

          • KeithSA

            for here-forth width my you be cursed with mosquito bites for baps for all negative thoughts:)

          • Riiseandshine

            Embrace the dark side you know it calls to you

          • KeithSA

            I will definitely have my light saber tongue out in full force when the widow closes and we have done great transfer business, it will slice through the negative sentiment with ease .

          • Riiseandshine

            😴😴😴 yet that never happens Keith . One half decent summer out of over ten windows 👍🏻

          • KeithSA

            Yes but its only Klopps second window we cannot hold him responsable for other windows

          • Riiseandshine

            Why can’t someone make a comment that’s different from yours without ” negative” being bandied about. Without negative to balance it out positive is just a load of shite talk ..

          • KeithSA

            If you post a positive comment that will happen:)

          • Riiseandshine

            I like that

          • Riiseandshine

            I post plenty of positive comments. But I also post plenty, that are perfectly valid, in criticising how we’ve done/do business in the transfer market. You choose to focus on those comments..I’ve already said about Salah. It’s not really for me, but I don’t have a problem with the move..I don’t like how Liverpool do business and I don’t agree with their transfer “policy”..Just because I have a different viewpoint doesn’t make it negative, just different….

          • Ian96

            Haha ok mate. I can take the mozzy bites too, just as long as the bitchin mozzy has big baps..mmmmm, not forgetting the pouted lips.

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            you really only need to write “baps”. We can guess the rest.

  • Ian96

    Putting a bid in “tomorrow”…….oh……lets have breakfast first…… arseholes. Another pile of shite. Hot air and no substance. Way to go Liverpool.

  • 44yearsAfan

    Salah must think its deja vu or groundhog day the way our club fu##s about doing deals, if they are going to do it then sort it out f f s

  • Brighton Red

    it’s simple ~ if Klopp says to FSG ‘ I need this player to improve YOUR team ‘ then they just go out and get him regardless of cost ~ if they are truly behind the manager and really want what they tell us they want of course. So when this deal is done FSG, go and cough up whatever it takes to get VVD and a top striker, I assume you are working away quietly in the background at the moment to get these players for Klopp and we’ll start to hear about the signings quite soon ~ certainly in time for pre season eh ??

    • Riiseandshine

      Vvd move is dead man. As for striker? We’ve signed solanke. Good old potential

      • KeithSA

        So John spoke to you to tell you VVD deal is dead?

        • Riiseandshine

          Why? did he speak to you and tell you it was on? An official club statement said its dead…We’ll see who’s right in September. Clue: it’ll be me 😉

          • Brighton Red

            don’t know that I share your views here, personally I think ( don’t know ) that that deal isn’t dead just yet, also don’t think they signed Solanke to be our main striker either so I believe they are still in the market, lets face it they’ll get the thick end of 80M if Sturridge, Sakho, Moreno and Marko leave so a 70M striker plus 70M for VVD plus 35M for Salah would not represent a huge outlay for a club who say they are serious about winning things.
            This is FSG’s chance to prove they are serious, If they don’t sign the players Klopp wants I’ll want them out, I just hope they put a top quality team on the pitch above a healthy bank balance, I’m not sure they will but as you say we’ll know in September.

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            bank balance isn’t healthy , we’re just not bleeding cash like we used to.

          • Brighton Red

            substitute money in the bank for healthy bank balance then.

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            errrm, that was £8m as of 31st May 2016 going by the accounts. And we lost money overall.

          • Brighton Red

            I think most people on here understand the point I was making but if you want to be obtuse be my guest.

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            excuse me for putting some flesh on the bone.

          • jolive

            I think it depends on who comes in to manage saints. Some managers would rather have 55mil to spend, especially if they have someone ready to replace VVD, hence the reason he hasn’t handed in a transfer request yet.

  • Redandyouknowsit

    Let’s get it over the line and move on to the next one ( left back please). That should hopefully keep some of our more excitable fans happy for an hour or so.

  • About time

  • RedUntilDead

    If they think they can get him on the cheap, then Monchi is not the guy they wanna deal with. Transfer fees are going through the roof for almost all players & clubs in the Prem. I mean look at the Pickford deal. I know he looks like he’s gonna be a good GK, but £30 mill for one good season ( for a team that got relegated 🤔 ) just emphasises my point. Salah is a proven (granted not in the Prem ) player with lots of experience at club and international level, and a proven game changer. If it takes us paying between 35-40 mill for him , then they need to get it done so they can move into the next target. They time taken to negotiate for him, if it replicates for every player they go for this window, they’ll be lucky to get 2 players in let alone the 3-4 at least everyone is hoping for.

    • MentalAndBookmarked

      roma have ffp problems. they have to raise £30m by the end of the month. we can use this to our advantage.

      • RedUntilDead

        Yes we all know they do, but all this fucking around doesn’t look good as this is the 2nd time it’s happening with the same player. If he is the main target for a winger, then what’s the problem in just paying a couple of extra mill to secure him. The player could end up pulling the plug with all the fucking about. Not saying he will, but it’s possible. We can’t have it both ways in that when other clubs inquire about one of our players, we seem to want and hold out for maybe more than the players worth, so it’s not unreasonable for others to do the same with us. Would it impact other players wanting to join ? Probably not, but some clubs, players and their agents must be thinking ” are these for real ” when sitting around the negotiating table.

        • MentalAndBookmarked

          yep, definitely a chance of losing the deal one way or another. It’s entirely possible Roma end up raising the money by selling someone else first or getting a higher bid elsewhere!

          It think that’s why the club appear to be getting the players to publicly commit to us in the first place. It makes it harder – though not impossible – for another club to then step in given his declared preference.

          As for the money, we lost money last year (as of May 31st 2016), and this year we’ve lost roughly £50m of income by not being in Europe at all. If you manage to save a few million it could impact on whether you make that last signing in the window or having to make do with another “potential” type.

  • Stromdiddily

    Whatever. If Klopp wants him, get it done

  • Elvis Gegen-Pressly

    £28.5m to £35m ain’t that bad…

    • I still he’s worth that £40m. Scored goals, makes assists, hardworking and fits directly into system.

      VVD £70m
      Pickford £30m

      Both goalies.

      perspective

      • Elvis Gegen-Pressly

        Oh of course!!!
