Salah contract latest

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Liverpool are not prioritising a new contract for Mohamed Salah, but remain “calm” about his future.

Salah remains under contract at Anfield until 2023, but recently did not rule out a future move to Barcelona or Real Madrid when he gave a rare interview last month to the Spanish sports daily AS.

And Romano has confirmed that the world’s biggest clubs are interested in Salah, but that negotiations over a new deal with Liverpool are yet to reach a conclusion.

He told Give Me Sport:

“In this moment, interest? For sure, because, obviously, we’re talking about a fantastic player so it’s impossible for any club not to be interested in him.

“But at the moment, there is nothing advanced with this agent or with Liverpool. Liverpool have not received anything from these clubs, so they were a bit surprised.

“But they know that what Salah said is, ‘one day I would like to play in these clubs’, (and this) is normal because we’re talking about two major clubs, Real Madrid and Barcelona, also to change leagues.

“His agent is negotiating with the club to understand what’s going on for the (new) contract. They are not negotiating right now but, for sure, the concept of Salah will be something they talk about, like in the next year.

“So we will see, but, for sure, at the moment, Liverpool are really calm about the situation of Salah. They are happy with him and they are concentrating more on other players like Fabinho, Van Dijk, extending their contracts and then we will see what’s going on with Salah.”
