Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool forward, has had an unforgettable 2017-18 season. Salah was named the PFA Premier League Player of the Year and will likely finish the year as the top-scorer in the English Premier League (much to Harry Kane’s frustration). With 31 goals at the time of this writing, the 25-year-old is basically a shoo-in for the Premier League Golden Boot award. The goal-scoring fiend has earned his place as a very coveted player, and in turn, Salah’s addition to any team will come with a very hefty price tag. Let’s see how much the Egyptian soccer player is worth today!
Mohamed Salah’s Net Worth 2018: $2.25 Million
Although Salah’s net worth is estimated to be around $2.25 million. His current wages at Liverpool are approximately $125,000 per week (£90,000).
Mohamed Salah was born on June 15, 1992 in Gharbia, Egypt. Even at an early age, he had a love for the game. When he wasn’t on the field, he was watching soccer matches on tv. He played for a youth team, despite the practices being a far drive away from his home. When he was 18, he transferred to the Egyptian Premier League where he played as forward. Unfortunately the league was cancelled after the Port Said Stadium riot in 2012. In the same year, he transitioned to Swiss club FC Basel. He won two titles with the team, and scored ten goals in 50 games. In 2011, he made his first international appearance with the Egypt National team, who he still plays for.
In 2014, Salah found his way to the English Premier League where he signed on with Chelsea. In that moment, he made history as the first Egyptian soccer player to ever play on the club. He made his first official debut with the team on February 8, 2014 as a substitute against Newcastle United. His first premier league goal came shortly after in a match against Arsenal. In the 11 appearances he made with Chelsea, he scored two goals.
Salah was then sent to Fiorentina as part of a loan deal. He only played eight games with the team, and though they wanted to make his move permanent, Salah refused. Instead he joined Roma on August 6, 2015. After impressing the club and scoring a total of 15 goals, he became Player of the Season. Then on June 22, 2017 Salah made one of his greatest moves yet and transferred to his current team, Liverpool. On August 12, in a match against Watford, he scored his first goal for the team.
At this point, Salah has made goal-scoring a hobby. As a result, he’s now got awards for days. He’s been awarded Premier League Player of the Month. Three times. In one season. He’s the only player in the league to have done this. In 2017, he received the title of BBC African Footballer of the Year, but so far 2018 has been Salah’s busiest year. In addition to being named PFA Premier League Player of the Year, he was also named African Player of the Year and CAF Africa’s finest XI. The forward earned a spot on PFA’s Team of the Year as well. Now he’s set to break Ronaldo’s record for most goals in a 38 game season. Fingers crossed, Salah.
