The Public Investment Fund, who own Al-Ittihad and have financed the spending of the Saudi Arabian league this , believe they can convince to leave Liverpool this week.
The Saudi Arabian transfer window closes on Thursday, but Al-Ittihad feel there is enough time to pull off a world record deal for Salah.
The club had a £150m bid rejected for Salah last week, with Liverpool insisting the Egyptian is not for sale.
However, they’re ready to significantly increase their bid for the 31-year-old to an eye-watering £215m.
On top of that, Salah will be made the joint-highest earner in world football alongside Cristiano Ronaldo on a reported £700,000-a-week deal.
The bid will severely test Liverpool’s resolve this week, particularly as the club know they cannot sign a replacement until the transfer window reopens in England in January.
But says there is a sense that Salah will at least want to listen to Al-Ittihad as he’s open to leaving the club this week.
They feel any Arab player would want to experience playing in the region to receive unprecedented levels of adulation.
Salah’s agent played down interest in August, but that was before Al-Ittihad presented their first offer.
Liverpool’s record turnover was the £596m they raised in 2022 following a highly successful 12 months in which they reached the final of the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and came second in the Premier League.
Selling Salah would raise more than one-third of the club’s turnover.
Added to that, Salah is Liverpool’s highest earner on around £300,000-a-week.
