Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has insisted that contract talks with the club are not just about money and he does not know where his long-term future lies.
Mohamed Salah still has a contract with Liverpool only until 2023, which has brought further speculation about his long-term future without the new terms agreement despite ongoing negotiations.
The 29-year-old, who has scored 155 goals in 245 games for the Reds, has said more than once that he wants to stay and depend on the team. However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently said the club could do very little.
90min revealed earlier this month that Salah and Liverpool remain ‘somewhat different’ by agreeing to a new contract. Anfield officials are set to make Salah the club’s highest-paid player, who will surpass Virgil van Dijk’s £ 250,000-a-week contract but is hesitant to double his current salary to become one of the highest-paid in the Premier League.
In short, Red is willing to donate £ 300,000 a week but is unlikely to reach £ 400,000.
In a new interview with FourFourTwo, Salah said the failure so far to agree on a deal, although he and the party were determined to do so, was not just about money.
“I don’t know, I have one year left,” he told the magazine when asked if he was convinced he would remain a Liverpool player for so long.
“I think the fans know what I want, but in a contract, it’s not all about money. So, I don’t know, I can’t tell you right. I have a year left and the fans know what I want. ”
Salah added, “This club means a lot to me – I enjoyed my football here more than anything, I gave the club everything and everyone saw that. I’ve had a lot of incredible moments here, winning lips, individual goals, individual lips. It’s like a family here. “
