Mo Salah has confirmed he wants to extend his stay at Liverpool and sign a new deal.
The Egyptian has been in sensational form for the Reds this season by netting 12 goals in 11 matches in all competitions.
While he’s let the football do the talking on the pitch, away from it there appears to be a standoff between himself and the club over his contract situation.
The 29-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the 2022-23 season and despite not putting pen to paper on a new deal as of yet, Salah has now gone public with his desire to remain on Merseyside.
‘If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands,’ Salah told Sky Sports.
‘It depends on what the club want, not on me. At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad.
Salah has regularly been linked with a move to the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in recent seasons but news of Salah’s intentions to stay at Anfield will come as a relief to Liverpool fans.
