In a recent interview, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah revealed updates on his contract extension situation with the reds. Salah stressed that the negotiations are not just about money.
The Liverpool star is set to enter the final year of his contract with the club this summer. The club have been in negotiations with the forward for a new long term deal for some time now. But the reds have been unable to find a breakthrough in negotiations so far.
While Salah has suggested that the negotiations with the club are not just about the money. Reports suggest that the salary offered by Liverpool is way below the best-paid players in the Premier League. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne earn upwards of £500,000k per week. While David de Gea and Jadon Sancho earn upwards of £400,000k per week. While Mohamed Salah is reportedly only on a £200,000k per week contract.

When asked about remaining at Anfield for years to come, Salah said: “I don’t know, I have one year left.

The 29-year-old did however confirm that wants to stay at the club beyond 2023. He said: “Yeah,” he said. “This club means a lot to me – I’ve enjoyed my football here more than anywhere, I gave the club everything and everybody saw that. I’ve had a lot of unbelievable moments here, winning trophies, individual goals, individual trophies. It’s like a family here.”
“I’m not worried, I don’t let myself worry about something,” “The season didn’t finish yet, so let’s finish it in the best possible way – that’s the most important thing. Then in the last year, we’re going to see what’s going to happen.” he added.
The forward turns 30 in June. When asked about his age, the forward said: “I didn’t think about the fact I’m going to turn 30,” he said. “I ask some players and they say it’s a different feeling when you turn 30, but I don’t know, I’m feeling fine. I’m enjoying life, I’m enjoying football – it doesn’t matter how old you are now. “ said Mohamed Salah
