MOHAMED SALAH has informed Liverpool that he wants to join Al-Ittihad, according to reports.
The winger received a huge David Beckham-like offer to join the Saudi Pro League side earlier this week.
Al-Ittihad tabled a five-year deal worth around £100million-a-season along with a private jet or unlimited plane tickets for his family and the chance to become an an ambassador for tourism and investments in Saudi Arabia.
There have also been discussions surrounding the possibility of Salah acquiring shares of a team in future – similar to the terms that saw Beckham move to the MLS in 2007.
The offer appears to have tempted Salah into joining the Saudi Pro League side as transfer journalist Rudi Galetti claims the 31-year-old winger has informed Liverpool he wants to leave.
However, the final decision will be down to club officials and Jurgen Klopp.

Salah has scored 187 goals and provided 80 assists for Liverpool since joining the club in 2017.
He also helped the club to a Champions League title and a Premier League title in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
Should they decide to sell him, Liverpool will have just a matter of days to recruit a replacement before the transfer window closes.
