Journalist Fabrizio Romano has recently talked about multiple contractual developments at Liverpool.
Romano was recently talking about multiple issues in European football on the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast and one club that he focused on was Liverpool. He gave updates about the situation of multiple Liverpool players and their current contracts. He provided information about the Reds’ stance on new contracts for Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Mohamed Salah.
The Reds are currently sixth in the table and they are as many as 16 points behind league leaders Manchester City. Van Dijk, though, is currently injured after picking up a knee injury back in October. Fabinho also sustained an injury earlier this month and is still currently out of action. Meanwhile, Salah is the highest scorer in the division.
Should Salah be handed a new contract?
Romano discussed contractual agreements for multiple players and he believes that the Reds have a ‘great strategy’ planned for the next few months.
The Italian said: “They are planning for the first [contract] bid for Van Dijk, then they have been planning with Fabinho – because they want to extend all the contracts that have two years remaining – and then will be the moment of Mo Salah. So, they are planning first of all with Van Dijk and Fabinho, and then Mo Salah. So, it will be interesting, I think, in the coming months to see what happens with Liverpool because they always have a great strategy.”
TIF Thoughts on Liverpool contracts…
All three of them are still under 30 and because of that, it might be a good time to extend their deals and protect their current values. So even if they want to sell those players on in the next two or three years, they could still get a good fee from their sales should negotiations turn sour.
