Mohamed Salah’s possible £127million-a-year wages in Saudi Arabia still dwarfed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s record salary


Mohamed Salah’s potential Saudi Arabia switch could bank him a whopping £127 million-a-year.

But it remains some way short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s world record salary for an athlete.

Liverpool face an anxious 48 hours with Al Ittihad reportedly tabling a world record £215m bid for Salah ahead of the Saudi transfer deadline on Thursday.

The Reds have already rebuffed a first offer from the Saudi Pro League champions, who remain desperate to secure his services.

Should the 31-year-old make the move to the Middle East, he would become the league’s third highest earner – behind Al Nassr striker Ronaldo and Al Hilal winger Neymar.

It has been alleged that Salah has been offered a £2.45m weekly salary at the King Abdullah Sports City stadium.

This would see him pocket a whopping £127.4m-a-year and an incredible £10.6m every month.

To break that down even further, the Egypt international would earn a cool £350k-per-day and £14.6k every hour.

Though Salah’s possible salary is nothing in comparison to Ronaldo’s wages, which he penned during the winter transfer window.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner inked a two-year deal with Al Nassr in January worth a mind-boggling £177m-a-year – the most expensive contract in sports history.

His wages amount to £14.75m-a-month, £3.4m-a-week, £485k-per-day and £20k-an-hour.

Despite the huge salary, Ronaldo was unable to help Al Nassr claim last season’s Saudi Pro League title after finishing runners-up to Al Ittihad.

Ronaldo and co will hope to go one better this time in what appears to be a more tightly-contested title race due to heavy investment across the league’s leading clubs.

Al Ittihad remain favourites despite suffering a first defeat of the season to an Aleksandar Mitrovic-inspired Al Hilal.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side dropped to third following Friday night’s loss, but the prospect of a Salah-Karim Benzema alliance is a frightening reality for the remaining 17 teams.
