Talks between Mohamed Salah and Liverpool over a contract extension have stalled as the Egyptian is unsatisfied with the wages offered, according to Guardian

 

The Egyptian’s contract runs out in the summer of 2023, but the winger still remains keen to stay.

Salah has been in scintillating form for Liverpool this season, leading the Premier League with 19 goals and reaching double figures for assists in the chase for his second league title with the club. The Egyptian also led his country to the final of AFCON but lost to club teammate Sadio Mane’s Senegal side. 

 

The 29-year-old has often stated that he would like to continue with Liverpool, the club he joined in 2017 and went on to lift five trophies with. That said, Salah would not be short of suitors if he decides to leave, whether that is on a free or if Liverpool decide to cash in on him. The likes of PSG and Manchester City would have no problem matching the winger’s demands. 

 

Manager Jurgen Klopp was today asked about the club’s ambition in improving the squad and persuading to keep Salah at the club, where the German stated that the ball is in the player’s court and that there is no rush.

Liverpool’s latest contract is believed to have fallen short of Salah’s demands and the player and his agent have no intention of accepting it, as per the report. Europe’s elite will be keenly following the situation that involves one of the best goalscorers in the world. Salah is said to be happy to stay in England if his time at Merseyside does come to an end.
