Liverpool have prepared a contingency plan for future options should Mohamed Salah make a shock move to Saudi Arabia. Mail Sports Sami Mokbel revealed.
The Reds have rejected a £150 million offer from Al-Ittihad from the Saudi Pro League and the club are still insisting on Salah’s departure.
However, concerns remain that while the European transfer window closes at 11pm on Friday, September 1, the Saudi market will remain open until September 7.
It means Liverpool would have little time to find a ready replacement for Salah if the 31-year-old shocked the club and made a surprise move to the Middle East.

“I think ideally they don’t want to sell him. Jurgen Klopp absolutely does not want to sell him.’ He said.
“But my information is that they may have put themselves in a position to strike at certain attackers who might be available in the market before Mo Salah’s eventual departure.
As much as they’d like to keep him, I don’t think it’s out of the question for him to go to Saudi Arabia.’
Al-Ittihad has already been busy this summer signing Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante and Salah’s former team-mate Fabinho after making the move earlier this summer.

Under the management of Nuno Espirito Santo, the club currently tops the Saudi Pro League, having won four out of four so far this season.
Still, a move from Liverpool’s number 11 would be one of the biggest deals in an incredible period for the league.
Salah’s status as the greatest Arab athlete in the world fuels the chase, and Al-Ittihad is prepared to push until the last hour on Friday to get their man.
Liverpool are in no rush to sell as the player has two years left on his £350,000-a-week contract.
