Back in May, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah revealed that no one from the club had approached him regarding a new contract.
With that being the case, we recently spoke to football journalist Fabrizio Romano regarding Salah’s contract situation. Salah’s current deal expires in the summer of 2023.
Romano said that Salah and the club are now talking about a new contract. However, Romano added that no deal has been agreed between the two parties.
“This [contract talks between the club and Salah] is not at the final stages yet,” Romano exclusively told Anfield Watch.
“They [the club and Salah] have been talking but nothing is advanced yet.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We would like to see the club lock Salah into an extended deal sooner rather than later.
Salah has been a superb signing for the Reds. Liverpool signed Salah from Roma for a transfer fee of €42 million.
The Egyptian international has proven to be worth every penny. Salah has scored 125 goals and registered 47 assists in 203 appearances for the club.
Salah has also won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League title with the Reds.
At least the club and Salah are now talking (according to Romano) about a new deal. We don’t want to see Salah go after 2023, so hopefully he signs a new deal with the club.
The winger is such a good footballer. Salah is not showing any signs of slowing down, either.
Salah found the back of the net 31 times in 51 appearances last season.
