In the last year, Saudi Arabia's top clubs have invested a fortune in signing top players who have left Europe to follow in CR7's footsteps. Thus, for example, Karim Benzema left Real Madrid for Al-Ittihad, where he is teammates with N'Golo Kanté and Sadio Mane. Neymar Junior, despite his knee operation, has an impressive salary at Al-Hilal, where Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Aleksander Mitrovic also play. And Al-Ahli boasts stars like Riyad Mahrez and Roberto Firmino.

But that is not enough. The Pro League wants to keep growing and that's why in the upcoming transfer window clubs will try to sign even more players from Europe. The main target, according to reports, is in the Premier League. Al-Ittihad want to find an ideal partner for Karim Benzema and will therefore go for Liverpool's star player Mohamed Salah.

The Athletic reports that the Saudi club are determined to go for the Egyptian winger and for that they will offer The Reds a fortune: $250 million. In addition, Salah's salary would also be at the level of the best players in the world: almost $90 million net per season, quadruple what he currently earns in England.

Should Al-Ittihad make such an offer for Mohamed Salah and Liverpool accept it, the Egyptian winger would become the most expensive player of all time. That $250 million would surpass the $235 million Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar Junior in 2017.
