today’s big Premier League match against Tottenham.
The right-back has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the win against Aston Villa almost four weeks ago, but has since returned to training, with Joe Gomez replacing him.
It would be a big boost for Jürgen Klopp, although a start is unlikely.
Jurgen Klopp is always keen to stress that Liverpool operate in a different financial realm to state-funded clubs such as Manchester City.
Yet, Salah falls into the same wage bracket as Pep Guardiola’s superstars.
One of the innumerable records shattered by Erling Haaland last term was Salah’s single-season Premier League goal tally of 32.
City’s painfully prolific forward racked up 36 in England’s top flight alone.
Yet, the contract which Haaland penned in 2022 was littered with bonuses that would have been triggered without his goal glut, according to the Daily Mail.
Last October, it was reported that Haaland earned roughly £865,000-per-week – more than double a basic salary thought to be in the region of £375,000-per-week.
Kevin De Bruyne, who created 11 goals for Haaland last season, reportedly boasts the largest Premier League wage with bonuses removed.
De Bruyne’s gargantuan £400,000-per-week haul is almost equivalent to the entire wage bill of newly promoted Luton Town (£457,500).
Last season Klopp bemoaned that Liverpool “cannot act like” City.
“It is not possible. Not possible,” he fretted.
“You have the best team in the world and you put in the best striker on the market.
No matter what it costs, you just do it.” Well, Liverpool didn’t exactly spare much expense when agreeing on Salah’s renewed deal.
