Juventus ready to ‘break the bank to seal Mo Salah’s dream’ after Paulo Dybala development | Soccer | sport

Juventus are reportedly preparing a bid to link Mohamed Salah with Massimiliano Allegri after the manager made the Liverpool star his dream transfer this summer. Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to lose his star man but he will enter the final 12 months of his contract.

Juventus are looking for ways to break the ban on bringing Salah on this summer in a sensational move for the Old Lady. The Egypt international will enter the last 12 months of his contract next season.

Negotiations over a new deal have stalled, with neither side able to find common ground. It points to a potential summer exit with the Reds reluctant to lose the 29-year-old for nothing.

Salah is keen to be rewarded for his brilliant form at Anfield and wants to be the Premier League’s biggest winner. This would see him earn more than Cristiano Ronaldo – who earns £500,000 a week at Manchester United.

But Liverpool are reluctant to go along with the former AS Roma star’s wishes as it would completely disrupt their current wage structure. Salah currently earns £200,000 a week and wants a salary close to triple that.

This has alerted a number of clubs across the continent, who may have a chance to sign the Egyptian this summer as he enters the final 12 months of his contract. That includes Juventus, who might see themselves as an outside bet but have every intention of taking a step in either direction.

News that Paulo Dybala will be leaving the Torino side at the end of the season means they may have to tap into the transfer window to find a replacement. The Argentine has been informed that his contract won’t be renewed and he will leave for nothing this summer.

And according to Il Corriere della Sera, via Football Italia, a move for Salah is being prepared by Juve to accede to Allegri’s wish to coach the Liverpool star. However, the economics behind such a deal has left Bianconeri bosses scratching their heads.

It has been claimed that Juventus will use the growth decree to obtain a tax cut on the player’s gross salary. But even with financial aid, it would take a long time to find an agreement with Salah and his salary demands.

One of the reasons Dybala is fired is to keep his wage bill in check, so bringing in the Liverpool star for a salary that would cripple them financially makes little sense. There’s also the fact that Salah is less than convinced to return to Serie A.

Nonetheless, Allegri dreams of coaching the striker and sees him as an integral part of Juve’s return to the top of Italian football. It has been a tough two years for the Old Lady, who were knocked out of the Champions League this season after a shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of Villarreal.
