In regards to Mane - he is a top top guy, what he does for his country and people around him is inspirational.

Now the reason why he wanted to leave Liverpool was because they offended him a bit, they pretty much wanted to offer Salah whatever he wants, but Mane was never offered the same. Plus I think he weren't even the top 4 top earners at Liverpool, considering he is just as important to what Liverpool do it was puzzling and I understand why he left as soon as. I think it's just one of those things of where Liverpool viewed him in one way vs how he views himself. He could easily play for any team in the prem and start for them.

Honestly, there's a reason Salah was offered more. For as good as Mané has been, he lost a step, which is why he moved away from the left wing (Diaz purchase). Don't get me wrong, he still produced in his new role, but at 30, paying him anywhere near the Egyptian king would be foolish.

Funnily enough, I do think Salah will move on next summer. Liverpool's wage structure will not be broken as it would open the flood gates for the likes of Alisson and van Dijk.

30 really isn't old. Vardy is 36 and still incredibly quick. age adds experience and knowledge.
I remember when the Dolphins were perennial contenders

How has Vardy's availability been? Injuries begin to happen more frequently over the age of 30.

In the last 7 seasons Vardy has played a total of 236 games and scored 128 goals in the prem alone. Does that answer your question?

I'm shocked, if I'm being honest. I had him pegged to leave next summer.

In staying, Liverpool's focus will be on upgrading the midfield a year from now. I could actually see them competing for Bellingham.

I'm not entirely shocked but I'm curious if Salah smashed the wage structure at Liverpool.

Also the Bellingham sweepstakes have already started, but he wont get/ask for a move this year. Real Madrid and Liverpool are the front runners so far, I would not be surprised if Chelsea and Utd enter between now and next summer

Salah's new wage is a non-issue for wage structure, IMO. Liverpool will not hand out these wages to players who have not deserved them, it is how the club works.

Let's hope he performs, it's a big contract to give to someone his age. I would've done the same to be honest he's world class at the end of the day, but I'm always a bit cautious.

The other thing that COULD happen is that Van Dijk, Trent and Allison potentially can now ask for near the same amount too.

But I'm happy that Salah stays at Liverpool he's loved by the fans and everyone associated by the club.

I, too, am concerned about the extension, due to his goal scoring form the second half of the season. Prior to him leaving for AFCON, he bordered on being the best player in the world. However, once Egypt lost to Senegal in the final, he wasn't the same.

The new contract is only for three more years. Salah is in phenomenal shape and turned 30 in June.

I think he’ll regain his form, as the saying goes form is temporary, class is permanent.

Liverpools attacking options are phenomenal!

Three years from now will he still have big transfer value?
