The Egyptian was about to enter the final year of his deal at Anfield and he faced the decision to extend his stay or move elsewhere.
Considering his impressive form in 2021-22, the Reds were keen to retain his services and began negotiations over a new contract.
According to the Daily Mail, the prestigious Harvard Business School were privy to the discussions between the club and the player as part of a study.
The American university has now released some key details on the forward’s negotiations with his club, with the Egyptian also sharing their statement on his X account.
Salah’s lawyer Ramy Abbas Issa told him in June 2022: “I am starting to fear that we may not be able to come to an agreement on a new contract, Mohamed – their latest offer is still very far from what we want.
But the 31-year-old was determined to stay on Merseyside. The pair put together a counter-offer before returning for conversations with the Reds.
The negotiations ultimately succeeded as Salah penned a new contract until 2025, with wages of almost £400,000-a-week agreed.
Despite signing a new deal, the Egypt international’s future remained the subject of speculation this summer.
Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad made a huge £215m bid to secure his services, but Liverpool rejected their offer.
The 31-year-old’s impressive start to the new campaign shows they made the right decision. He has scored three goals and registered four assists in six Premier League matches this season.
The Harvard study demonstrates that Salah is committed to the Reds, which is excellent news for the fans.
