Mohamed Salah recently extended his contract for a further three years, and because of the way it is structured, Liverpool will not follow Barcelona’s example.

When the much-anticipated news was eventually announced, videos, images, and comments on social media platforms helped spread the joy to people all over the world.

Mohamed Salah has a three-year extension at Liverpool.

It’s what Liverpool’s supporters, players, and manager, Jürgen Klopp, have all been hoping for for a while: one of the best in the world committing to the team for the pinnacle of his career.

His contract solidifies Liverpool’s place among the finest clubs in the world and elevates them to serious title challenger status in the Premier League and Champions League for the upcoming year.

But it’s not without risk and comes with a warning.

According to most estimates, Salah agreed to a £350,000-per-week deal in order to stay at the club. The arrangement is reportedly incentive-heavy, so the amount is not a certainty, according to other reports.

Even yet, the Egyptian earns far more than other players at the team, like Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcântara.

And that might create a negative precedent going forward.

We’ve seen before what happens and what the financial ramifications are when one player makes far more than the rest of the team. Although Barcelona’s current situation is completely their own fault due to their nonsensical mega-money purchases like Philippe Coutinho, Antoine Griezmann, and Ousmane Dembélé, their ridiculously enormous salary bill didn’t help.

Few people would genuinely contend that Lionel Messi didn’t deserve his previous contract, which was worth more than £100 million annually. However, as a result of this, other, less talented players in the team demanded a sizable raise, which Barcelona granted.

It reached a point where the Catalans were paying players like Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets enormous salaries each season. All three have done fantastic work for the club, yet their combined salaries exceeded £25 million annually. Despite their financial difficulties, Busquets made £20 million (gross) in 2021–22, according to a report. Lunacy.

Liverpool must learn from Barca’s failure in order to avoid making the same errors. This is unlikely to occur, though, because of one easy but brilliant move: Salah’s contract, of course, was the last significant one to be renewed. Since they all signed extensions during the past year or more, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, Jordan Henderson, and Fabinho won’t be renegotiating any time soon.

As a result, there is almost no likelihood that any other team members will request big raises. Furthermore, because Salah’s lucrative new contract is not dependent on a fixed wage but rather on goals, appearances, and trophies, should he perform well and help Liverpool win awards, they will be able to pay for it without going into debt.
