The Egyptian forward,29, is out of contract at the end of next season. Contract talks have taken place between Liverpool and Mohamed Salah but both sides have failed to come to an agreement.
This has led Salah’s future at Liverpool in Premier League into question. Salah’s stellar form in the Premier League this season has attracted many potential suitors.
Potential Club already selected?
According to reports, Salah has already thought of where he could end up if he does not extend his stay at Liverpool. Although Salah is a popular figure among Liverpool fans, he would have no problems joining another Premier League club.
Salah wants to remain in England and thus move to another rival club in England and not move abroad. Although it remains to be seen which Premier League club could afford Mohamed Salah if a new contract is not agreed.
Premier League Clubs that are in the race
The first name that comes to everyone’s mind in such situations is Manchester City as they certainly have the financial and Pep factor to pull off such a transfer. The signing of Salah would continue their domination of the domestic game. Salah’s former club Chelsea who have been through a takeover recently and Manchester United will watch the situation closely.
The bitter relations between Liverpool and United and further United cannot offer Champions League football as it stands. Another long-shot potential club is Newcastle United which is the richest club in the world with financial backing from Saudi company PIF.
The latest reports might worry Liverpool fans about Salah’s future at the club. The recent comments by Salah himself has already confirmed he won’t leave the club this summer. Speaking ahead of the Champions League final showdown, he said: “In my mind, I don’t focus on the contract at the moment. He further added “I don’t want to be selfish at all, I even said that two months ago. It’s about the team now. It’s a big, important week for us and I’m just focused on the team. I want to win the Champions again and see Hendo with the trophy in his hands again, then hopefully he can give it to me after.”
