Salah asks Liverpool for payrise

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mohamed Salah has reportedly told Liverpool chiefs that he wants 28 million euros a year which is around N13.6 billion for him to extend his contract at the Premier League giants.

For now, the Egypt international is having two years remaining on his current contract at Anfield and the club's eggheads have been asking him to sign a new deal.

The former Chelsea and Roma star is currently on 11 million euros a year at Liverpool, but Mohamed Salah wants more than double of his current wages for him to stay.
