The Egyptian megastar has two years left of contract at Anfield and is struggling to agree to an extension as the club doesn't satisfy his salary demands. The Citizens, meanwhile, are understood to be huge admirers of Salah and this could be their moment to go after him.
Adrian Durham of talkSPORT claimed that should Man City submit a £75 million offer, Liverpool's owners would consider it given how much the player is asking to stay in Merseyside beyond next summer.
Manchester City could submit £75m bid to Liverpool for Salah, English media says
"They (Man City) should go and get him. It might be a difficult one to get over the line but the owners might go for the money that City offer. They’re not massive Liverpool fans from way back, they’re thinking about money and running a business," Durham said.
Salah, 29, reportedly demands a huge salary raise as he asks between £300k and £380k a week, a lot more than the current £200,000 he currently makes with the Premier League giants. “Are Liverpool going to give a mega-contract of four, five years, the kind of contract another club would give? If Man City come in and say we’ll give you £75m or even £100m for Salah right now, that’s a massive business decision that Liverpool have to make," Durham added.
Needless to say, if this hypothetical move eventually takes place, it would be heartbreaking for all Liverpool fans. But as long as Salah doesn't put pen to paper to a new deal, we can only expect more rumors to be spread all over the media.
