Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has reportedly agreed to a record move to Saudi Arabia, which would make him the highest-paid player in the world.
The Egyptian star has been convinced to join the number of world stars to the Middle East and beIN Sports claim a deal has already been agreed with Al-Ittihad.

Sports Zone claims the deal is for three years and worth £191million per season – that’s almost £3.7m a week, tax free, and more than what both Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema earn.
However, It is not that simple as Salah signed a new contract with Liverpool last summer which does not expire until 2025 and The Athletic claim that any bid for their talisman will be rejected out of hand.
Liverpool have no pressure to sell, and earlier in the summer Salah’s agent, Remy Abbas, shut down reports of an Anfield exit.
He tweeted: “If we considered leaving LFC this year, we wouldn’t have renewed the contract last summer. Mohamed remains committed to LFC.”
Salah, who has scored 187 times in 308 appearances for the Reds, would reportedly not push to leave the club this summer but is ready to make the move.
