Mohamed Salah gives insight into Liverpool contract talks through Harvard study

Mohamed Salah gives insight into Liverpool contract talks through Harvard study

Mohamed Salah has given fans an insight into his Liverpool contract negotiation

Mohamed Salah has given a rare insight into his Liverpool contract talks through a Harvard Business School study.

Last year, there were doubts over Salah’s Liverpool future after reports that both parties were struggling to reach an agreement on a new contract.

However, those doubts were banished when it was confirmed that Salah had signed a new to extend his stay at Anfield until 2025.

After scoring against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon, the Egyptian took to social media to share a Harvard study which focused on his contract talks.

According to the study, Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa told him on the phone: “I am starting to fear that we may not be able to come to an agreement on a new contract, Mohamed - their latest offer is still very far from what we want.”

Salah was quoted saying: “I want to stay with Liverpool but the club needs to show that they want me to stay as well.”

The document then highlighted topics such as whether it was right or wrong to push for a transfer away and the relationship between Salah and Issa in the past.

On Issa, Salah said: “We are partners. I know he’ll always do what is best for me.”

After eventually signing his new deal in July 2022, Salah told the club’s official website: “I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.”

He added: “I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”


This summer, Salah’s future was thrown up into the air again after strong interest from Saudi Professional League side Al Ittihad.

However, Liverpool were adamant from day one that Salah was not for sale and rejected Al Ittihad’s bid worth a reported £200 million.
