Manchester City is in line to land Mohamed Salah on a free in 2023

About Football Express UK

According to reports, Premier League giants Manchester City are weighing up a move for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah if the forward leaves on a free transfer in the summer of 2023.

With the 2021-22 season coming to an end, Mohamed Salah now has only one year remaining on his current Liverpool contract. The contract extension offer from the reds has been on the table for a very long time. But Mohamed Salah is waiting for the club to increase their offer substantially to match his salary with the highest earners in the Premier League.

While on the pitch Salah enjoyed yet another very successful season. He helped his side life the EFL Cup and the FA Cup. The Egyptian forward made a total of 51 appearances across all competitions. In this time he recorded an outstanding 31 goals and 16 assists. (stats via Transfermarkt)

But Salah will probably end the season with a lot of disappointment. As Liverpool lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid. While they just narrowly missed out on the Premier League title on the final day of the season. While on the international stage, he lost the AFCON final and failed to qualify for the World Cup.

To add to the misery of Liverpool fans, star winger Sadio Mane has also made his intentions to leave the club in the summer clear. While the future of Roberto Firmino is still up in the air. The legendary trio that brought Liverpool so much success is sadly coming to an end.

Could Mohamed Salah be a feasible option for Manchester City?

Pep Guardiola has already added two new attackers to his side before the beginning of the summer transfer window in Erling Haaland and Julián Álvarez. While Pep Guardiola’s contract is up at the end of next season and there is no confirmation about any contact extension yet. The club will need to consider the opinion of the new manager if three is a new manager.

While there is no doubt that Salah would be a good signing even at 31-years of age. But the citizens will need to likely double his current £200,000-a-week salary. While also offering the forward a very good signing on bonus. Looking back to the last few transfer windows of Manchester City. It seems highly unlikely that the club will be anywhere near Mohamed Salah.
