Attacking star Mohamed Salah has commented on his future and contract poker at Liverpool FC.
“I don’t know how things will continue. I still have a year on my contract,” the Egyptian explained in an interview FourFourTwo.
Negotiations to extend his contract, which expires in 2023, have recently been difficult. In early April, the Daily Mail however, that there are many indications of an extension. Accordingly, Salah is said to have cut back on his salary demands and instead of the original 30 million demand “only” an annual salary of 25 million euros. Liverpool are said to offer the 29-year-old a four-year contract.
“I think the fans know what I want, but this contract isn’t just about the money,” Salah said. “This club means a lot to me and I enjoyed football here more than anywhere else.”
