“If you ask me, I would love to stay (at Liverpool) until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that — it’s not in my hands.”
Why Mohamed Salah is so important for Liverpool
Salah is having a phenomenal start to the season with 14 goals and four assists from 11 appearances in all competitions. He is also leading the Golden Boot race in the Premier League with 7 goals matched with Leicester‘s Jamie Vardy.
The Egypt international is surely one of the best players in the world. Ever since he joined the Reds in 2017, Mo has been been their talisman. The 29-yrs-old forward led Liverpool to their Premier League title in 2020 – ending their 30-years drought.
With 104 goals, Salah is one of three players to score 100+goals in the PL, including his forward companion, Sadio Mane and ex-Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba. Mo has 30 UCL goals for Liverpool, 6 goals behind Drogba and Sergio Aguero for most goals for English clubs.
Liverpool are aware they would have to make Mo Salah the best paid player in the club’s history but talks over his new deal have reached a stalemate. It is believed Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas, is asking for more than £400,000-a-week.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has never fallen short in complimenting his right winger. Even though he refuses to share details about the Pharaoh’s contract renewal, it is a no brainer that he wants him to stay and play for his side.
With doubts on his foreseeable future, Salah seems to be ready to add another goal to his tally on Sunday at Old Trafford.
