Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah says he will remain at Anfield next season “for sure” but would not be drawn over whether he will sign a new contract. Salah’s deal ends in June 2023, leading to speculation he could be sold if he did not sign a new one as he would leave on a free in a year. When asked about his future before Saturday’s Champions League final, he said: “I don’t want to talk about that. “I just want to see Hendo [Jordan Henderson] with the trophy.”
Mohamed Salah said he will be at Liverpool Next Season
The 29-year-old Egypt striker also said: “I don’t focus on the contract at the moment. I don’t want to be selfish.” “I am staying next season for sure.” Salah’s team-mate Sadio Mane said he would announce his decision on his future after the final against Real Madrid in Paris. The Senegal international, who has scored 120 goals in 268 games for the Reds, will also enter the last 12 months of his contract from June.
He said: “This question [about my future] I will answer after Champions League. If I’m staying or not, I’m going to answer after [the] Champions League.” Some months back Klopp said it was up to Mohamed Salah whether he signed a new contract or not. The former Chelsea forward has previously said he wants to stay but his future is in Liverpool’s hands and he is not asking for “crazy stuff”.
Speaking ahead of the Champions League final which comes up on Saturday, the striker said: “I’m very motivated, motivated through the roof, after what happened last time [2018 final] and Sunday – everyone is motivated for this,” he added. “We fight for this and everyone is excited.”
