Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on Que Golazo about the situation concerning Liverpool and Mohamed Salah’s new contract.
Liverpool currently find themselves in a tricky situation as their regular front three of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are all set to be out of contract in 2023 but it’s the former who is creating the most noise as he’s confirmed he wishes to stay and that it’s down to the club to sort out a deal.
Will Salah leave Liverpool this summer?
Salah is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world at the minute, so it does seem a bit bizarre for Liverpool to have not thrashed out a new deal yet or even come to an agreement on wages and other financial aspects – even though he will be 30 years old in June.
Romano has revealed that both sides want to agree a deal, but nothing has happened yet.
“I’m surprised that they still don’t have an agreement, but they’re still in conversation with Mo Salah, they are negotiating with Mo Salah. But it’s still not fully agreed yet, so we need to wait a bit to see what will be the situation in the coming weeks.
“For Liverpool, the message we received from the club is still the same: we want Salah to stay, we want him to sign a new deal. we want to have everything ready before the summer to avoid any kind of problems.
“If you’re out of contract in 2023 and [it gets to] May, June, July, it’s a big problem for a top club and for a top player like Mo Salah.”
TIF Thoughts on Mohamed Salah and his new contract at Liverpool…
Since Salah joined Liverpool, he’s managed to score an incredible 111 goals in the Premier League while also picking up a league title and Champions League during his time at Anfield – being instrumental in both successes.
If Liverpool are unwilling to meet Salah’s demands when it comes to wages, then they may even look to sell him this summer when he’ll have just 12 months left on his contract. Otherwise, he could easily sign a pre-contract with someone such as Barcelona or Real Madrid in less than 12 months, with the winger linked to both clubs in the past.
