The Egyptian signed for a humble £35m for Liverpool last summer, so how does he compare to the rest of Europe's elite?

There are no words to describe Mohamed Salah's sensational rise to the top of elite European football. Branded a 'Chelsea reject' and scoffed at for his £35 million ($47m) move from Roma, the Egyptian has proved his doubters – and the world – wrong with his electrifying form at Anfield.

A man of humble nature and beginnings – growing up in small village Nagrig in Egypt – he is both a club and international hero, having sent his country into their first World Cup in almost three decades last year.

His monetary value is light-years away from his European contemporaries – which is part of his charm and appeal – though that is understandably something that will inevitably change soon.

So how does Salah's earnings stack up when compared to the likes of the European greats?


What is Mohamed Salah's net worth?


Estimates of Salah's net worth vary wildly, with reports suggesting that it stands anywhere between $3 million and $40 million.

Both figures pale in comparison to the likes of Lionel Messi (£200m – £300m), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£110m), Wayne Rooney (£100m) and Neymar (just under £100m).

Salah's net worth is likely to grow in the coming years as his earning power increases.


How much does Salah earn?

Upon signing for Liverpool, Salah put pen-to-paper on a £90,000-per-week deal at Anfield – paling in comparison to the likes of Alexis Sanchez's £350,000-per-week deal at Old Trafford.

Though modest when compared to the likes of Paul Pogba (who earns £290,000 a week), Salah's wages are double than what he was earning at Roma. 

It's a bargain for the star Egyptian, too, considering that Liverpool only paid a mere £35 million for his services from Roma.

Salah doesn't even make the list of top ten highest earners in the Premier League, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal (at No.10) earning £180,000 per week.

What charity work does Salah do?


Salah is known for giving back to several communities in Egypt and especially that of his hometown Nagrig.

The forward is still wholly committed to giving back to his village away from the pitch, doing remarkable lengths to begin constructing a hospital and giving back to his native country .

“Salah is a refined person who, despite his popularity, has never forgotten about his town," Shatiyah told SunSport .

"[He has provided] many forms of assistance, the first of which was a series of foodstuff outlets under the municipality’s management, as well as the town’s first ambulance unit.

"Salah had always subsisted unable fellow villagers but wanted to [formalise] that assistance.

"The establishment of the charity caters for a larger number of families, [he spends between] £2,000 and £3,500 monthly."

Though there has been some misinformation about what Salah has or hasn't actually done in Egypt, he is dedicated to improving Nagrig.
