Mohamed Salah has made it clear he wants to finish his career with Liverpool — but says the decision is out of his hands.
The Egyptian, who has started the season in blistering form, has 20 months left on his deal. Liverpool spent the summer securing the futures of senior players but have so far been unable to come to an agreement with Salah.
Since arriving from Roma in June 2017, Salah has made himself a Liverpool legend by helping the club win the Champions League and Premier League. But Salah has not been able to give any assurances about when or if the impasse about whether he stays will be resolved.
It is widely recognised Liverpool will need to make Salah the best-paid player in their history and talks will continue between his agent and the club.
He added: ‘I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard but let’s see what happens.’
Jurgen Klopp suggested this week Salah could win the Ballon d’Or and believes his forward can emulate Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring goals until his mid-thirties. ‘Mo is incredibly professional and still has a lot to give,’ said the Reds boss. ‘He is constantly interested in all the things he can do to improve. Why should we compare (him with Ronaldo)? Both are world-class.
‘I would say Mo’s left foot is better, Cristiano better in the air and right foot. Speed-wise, both quick and desperate to score goals.’
Salah has been in sparkling form for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, scoring his 11th and 12th goals in 11 appearances in all competitions in the midweek Champions League win against Atletico Madrid.
The Egypt international became the fastest player to score 100 goals for Liverpool in September and is the fifth-fastest to score 100 Premier League goals (162 matches).
He has scored in all of his last nine matches and his recent efforts against Manchester City and Watford are considered early contenders for goal of the season.
In an interview with Sky, Salah said: ‘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.’
