Salah’s current terms on Merseyside are due to expire in the summer of 2023, opening the door to a potential departure down the line.
Recent reports, meanwhile, have pointed towards mammoth £400,000-per-week wage demands on the part of the Egyptian, casting a renewal into doubt.
In turn, speaking in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of his side’s showdown with Manchester United this weekend, Salah was inevitably drawn on his stance when it comes to committing to Liverpool for the long-term.
And, though the former Chelsea man was keen to assure that he would be more than happy to see out the remainder of his playing days on Merseyside, significantly, Salah went on to add that the situation, as things stand, is ‘not in my hands’:
‘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.’
‘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.’
