Liverpool’s star forward Mohamed Salah wouldn’t mind if he spent the remainder of his professional carrier at Anfield. But he also knows that this isn’t just his decision to make.
Salah and Liverpool have been engaged in contract negotiations for a while but have yet to find some common ground.
“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 said in a recent chat with Sky Sports.
Salah, who has two years left on his deal, explained that it would make him “sad” if he ever had to play against Liverpool.
“It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad… but let’s see what will happen in the future,” he added.
In case that Salah and Liverpool can’t agree, several clubs are waiting to make a run for the 29-year-old Egyptian. One of them is Real Madrid, who would be reportedly interested in sending Eden Hazard alongside an additional fee to Liverpool for Salah.
Salah has played 214 games and scored 137 goals with 51 assists since arriving in Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017. He helped the club win multiple trophies during that time, including the Premier League title and UEFA Champions League trophy.
