Jose Enrique Urges Liverpool to Sell One of Their Stars as He Claims Could Be “Bigger Than Ronaldo” Outside Anfield

Mohamed Salah is not the same player he once was, and Liverpool should consider selling him to any interested Saudi Arabian club if the price is right.

This opinion comes from former Liverpool player Jose Enrique, who also believes that the Egyptian forward has already agreed to move to the Saudi Pro League.

The ex-left back suggests that since a bid of around £150 million was made to Liverpool last summer by Al-Ittihad, Salah must have given his approval for the transfer.

Salah, who turned 32 on Saturday, ended the season as the Reds’ top goalscorer and received the club’s player of the year award.

He has been the top scorer in every season at Anfield since joining from Roma in 2017. His remarkable tenure includes 211 goals and victories in the Premier League, Champions League, and two African Player of the Year awards.

However, Enrique believes it is now the right time for Liverpool to part ways with Salah, allowing him to thrive in Saudi Arabia, where he could compete with Cristiano Ronaldo for the title of the region’s biggest star.

Salah Could Be Bigger Than Ronaldo

“Mohamed Salah isn’t quite the player he was three years ago,” Jose Enrique said to Grosvenor Sports.

“He doesn’t take on defenders as much, though he’s still a phenomenal goal-scoring machine. If I were Liverpool, and the right offer came in – say, over £100 million – I’d seriously consider it.

“A move to Saudi Arabia could easily fetch that kind of money. I know Liverpool fans might not agree with me – they love Salah and want all their top players to stay – but sometimes, you have to know when to let go.

“For instance, I’d renew Virgil van Dijk’s contract without hesitation, but with Salah, there’s the Saudi option, and he could become an even bigger star out there than Cristiano Ronaldo. Last year, there were offers from Saudi Arabia for Salah.

“We all know that when an offer is made, personal terms have likely been agreed upon, so it’s clear he’s open to the idea of moving on from Liverpool.”
