Salah staying at Liverpool

101

Mohamed Salah has confirmed he will see out his contract at Liverpool next season, but the Egypt forward remains non-committal on his future at Anfield beyond 2023.

Salah’s contract expires at the end of next season and talks over a new deal have dragged on for months without a resolution.

Ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid, Salah said his full focus is on winning the biggest prize in European football for the second time. “I don’t want to talk about the contract.

I’m stay-ing next season for sure, let’s see after that,” said Salah at Liverpool’s pre-match media day on Wednesday. “In my mind I don’t focus about the contract.

I don’t want to be selfish, it’s about the team. It’s a really important week for us, I want to see Hendo (Jordan Henderson) having the trophy again in his hands.” However, Real’s failure to land France forward Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain has sparked speculation they could now enter the race for Salah.

The 29-year-old picked up his third Premier League Golden Boot in five seasons on Sunday as he shared the award with Tottenham’s Son Heung-min on 23 goals. Salah’s fellow forward Sadio Mane also refused to commit his long-term future to Liverpool.—APP
