 Asian Football Confederation Sets Sights on Acquiring Salah

The Asian Football Confederation is reportedly interested in negotiating a deal to bring Mohamed Salah to the Middle East, as the Saudi Pro League continues to attract top European football players.

 The league has gained significant attention with the recent acquisition of Al Ittihad, Al Ahli, Al Nassr, and Al Hilal by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, indicating a strong desire to showcase sporting progress in the Arabian region.

Following the acquisition of clubs by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, notable players such as Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, and Ruben Neves have joined the Saudi Pro League. 

Hafez Al-Medlej, the head of marketing at the Asian Football Confederation, expressed his belief that Mohamed Salah would be a valuable addition to the league.

“The departure of the stars from Europe will affect sponsorship and television contracts,” Al-Medlej told AS, as per Liverpool Echo.

“Messi is the best footballer at the moment and his incorporation would have provided great value. But we are not going to compensate him with a substitute player.

“We must also start working on the signing of Mohamed Salah since he is overwhelmingly popular in the Arab world and in Europe. I think Salah still has records to break with Liverpool, so I hope that if he doesn’t come now he will in the future.”
