Mohamed Salah has upped the strain on Liverpool to comply with his contract demands by insinuating that he may be as durable as Cristiano Ronaldo.
As his contract comes to an end this summer, Mo Salah’s future at Liverpool has been a topic of conversation throughout the season, but the Egyptian has given his opinion on the matter.
Throughout the season, the 29-year-old has been in discussions for a new deal, publicly claiming that money is not a factor when it comes to extending his five-year stay at Anfield.
Salah, despite turning 30 by the start of the next season, appears to prefer a long-term agreement to stay on Merseyside.
The Egyptian star’s contract is slated to expire this summer, and talks over an extension have dragged on for months, with whispers continuing throughout the season.
Salah has established himself as Liverpool’s talisman, and his departure would leave a massive vacuum.
Salah had previously explored a transfer away from Liverpool, with Spain being mooted as a possible destination.
But he has continually expressed his love for the Reds as he seeks to renegotiate his contract circumstances.
His goal-scoring prowess has benefited him in discussions, but the player maintains he is not looking for a hefty price hike to stay.
I believe the supporters understand what I want, but the transaction isn’t solely about the money.
So I’m not sure, and I can’t give you a clear response. I’ve got just about a year left, and what I want is already clear to the fans.
Salah went on to say, “This club means a lot to me; I’ve had more joy playing football here than anyplace else, and everyone can see that.
I’ve had a lot of fantastic experiences here, like winning trophies, scoring individual goals, and receiving individual trophies. It’s like being part of a family here. ”
The 29-year-old is experiencing his greatest season to date, having already scored 30 goals and driving the Merseyside club to a possible quadruple.
They’ve already won the Carabao Cup and have their sights set on three more titles.
Salah, on the other hand, has remained focused on matters on the field this season, choosing to put his future move to the back of his mind.
He explained, “I am not anxious, and I do not let myself be worried. The season isn’t yet done.
Let’s make the most of it—that’s the most important thing to keep in mind. Then we’ll wait and see what happens in the coming year.
If they want me to go, that’s something different” stated the forward, in expectation of staying at Liverpool further beyond this season.
Jurgen Klopp has remained indifferent about the status of the forward’s contract discussions.
Liverpool’s success this season, as well as their continuing activity in the transfer market, makes them a tempting alternative, and the German feels they have done everything they can.
“According to Mo, this club will be ambitious,” he said last month.
“We aren’t going to be able to do much else. Mo is the one who has to make a choice.”
“Everything is fine in my opinion. There was to be no more signing, no more action, no more rejection. We simply have to wait; there is no need to hurry.” He added.
Although there has been movement in recent weeks and manager Jurgen Klopp is positive about the situation, the player who will have to sign the dotted line is still indecisive about his future.
