Liverpool Know What Mohamed Salah Wants To Sign New Contract

Mohamed Salah has claimed his future is in Liverpool's hands, after telling the club exactly what he wants to sign a new deal.

Salah's contract at Anfield is set to expire in June 2023, which means in just a year's time the Liverpool forward can start negotiating with other clubs and sign a pre contract agreement outside of England.

Despite the forward turning 30 at the end of this season, the club would like to keep hold of a player considered by many as the best in the world right now, even if Garth Crooks couldn't find space in his team of the year for the forward.

There has been talk of Salah wanting up to £500,000-a-week in his new deal and now the former Roma forward has put the ball in Liverpool's court, saying they know exactly what he wants.

"I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands, it’s in their hands," Salah told GQ magazine.

"They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff."

Whatever the 29-year-old's exact demands, a new deal is likely to make him the club's highest ever earner which, combined with his age, might be why the club are stalling.

However, he has scored 148 goals in 229 games since joining the club and already has 16 in 20 in the Premier League this season, making him the league's top scorer.

Salah, who is away at the Africa Cup of Nations at the moment, suggested he just wants to be paid what his achievements in the north west deserve.

"The thing is, when you ask for something and they show you they can give you something, they should, because they appreciate what you did for the club," he added.

"I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club well. I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands."

Whilst Salah may not have made it into the FIFpro XI of the year either, Salah is at least up for FIFA's The Best Men's Player of the Year.

The Egyptian will compete with Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi, who won this year's Ballon d'Or, for the honour of being the best in the world.
