Saudi Pro League champions Al Ittihad are making a new attempt to land Liverpool star Mohamed Salah by tabling a world record 215 million-pound ($270m) offer, APA reports citing Al Jazeera.

The Sun said Al Ittihad officials travelled to the United Kingdom in their latest attempt to sign the 31-year-old Egyptian international before the Saudi transfer window closes on Thursday.

The Sun reported that Salah, the world’s highest profile Arab footballer, has been offered a Saudi Pro League record salary of £2.45m a week.

It also reported Salah had been also offered a significant percentage of shirt sales, a £55,000 win bonus, and ambassadorial roles with at least three major Saudi companies for the duration of his contract.

Last week, the Merseyside club rejected a $189.6m offer for Salah from the Saudi club.

Salah, who has two years left on a contract signed last year, has scored 188 goals in 309 games for Liverpool since he joined the club in June 2017.

Al Ittihad could make another offer for Salah in the January transfer window if they are unsuccessful in tempting Liverpool to sell the forward this week.
