Liverpool would like to resolve the situation regarding Mohamed Salah’s contract before the end of the current season, second Sky Sports reporter Vinny O’Connor.
The Egyptian is only 18 months away from his current agreement, and it is natural that both sides want the matter to be resolved. Liverpool want to keep Salah and Salah want to stay at Liverpool, but the negotiations are more complicated than that.
Widely regarded as one of the best players in the world, the 29-year-old striker obviously wants his salary to reflect his status and qualities, but also that the club continue to show ambition to win trophies in the future. He is aware that this will require some rejuvenation of the team, as many key players are in their thirties or nearing their 30s.
The best clubs in all of Europe are prowling around, continually trying to figure out if there is a possibility of taking Salah away from Anfield, and this further complicates the matter, despite the player’s desire to stay where he is.
