Liverpool would have to pay well over £150million to replace Mohamed Salah.
That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the attacker’s new deal.
On 1 July, Liverpool announced Salah had penned a new three-year contract at Anfield.
Kenny insists Liverpool would have to shell out even more money if they were to replace Salah, making the decision to offer him a new deal a “no-brainer”.
“For Liverpool to replace him it is going to cost £150million or more,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Then you have the wages on top of that. You would have to pay the replacement the same money Salah was asking for anyway.
“I’m glad Liverpool have got it sorted. I do want Salah to stay in the Premier League, I love watching him play.
“Listen, sometimes you have to pay these players to keep them at the club. I don’t know exactly what Salah is on but I’m sure it is well deserved.
“It’s a no-brainer, the guy is unbelievable and you have to keep a player like that.”
Salah finished as Liverpool’s top scorer in the 2021-22 season, bagging 31 goals in 51 total outings.
He has now scored 156 goals for the club.
