Mohamed Salah's agent speaks out on Liverpool exit claims with blunt response

Mohamed Salah's agent speaks out on Liverpool exit claims with blunt response

Mohamed Salah's agent has hit back at claims his client is open to leaving Liverpool.

The agent of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has rubbished claims that the Egyptian is 'open' to leaving the club this summer.

Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna claimed earlier on Saturday that Salah was considering his options after the Reds' struggles this season, and that he has been 'asking questions about his future'.

Furthermore, it was alleged that he preferred a move to Spain if he was to depart the club.

The 30-year-old has been Liverpool's top goalscorer this season, with 22 goals in 39 games in all competitions. He has scored 178 goals in 293 appearances since joining the club in 2017, and has won a total of seven trophies as a part of Jurgen Klopp's side.

He signed a new three-year contract last summer, and Goal reported that the deal made him one of the Premier League's top earners.

Now, the player's agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, has hit back at claims that Salah may look to leave at the end of the season.

Taking to Twitter to respond directly to the rumours, Abbas stated that he had not discussed Salah's future with the player himself - and sent a blunt message.

He wrote: "Where did you get this from if not even Mohamed and I discussed this? Please tell us."

As per 90min, Abbas was introduced to Salah when the Egyptian was at Chelsea, shortly before his departure to Serie A side Fiorentina in 2015.

Soon after, the player appointed Abbas as his agent, and he has represented the Liverpool star since then.

Speaking to Arabic outlet Al Arabiya Sport in November about the 30-year-old's new contract, Abbas said (quotes via Liverpool Echo): "It's good to know where he's going to be for the next two-and-a-half years, but when someone has been playing football for so many years at the highest level - I don't think you need much motivation.

"Even when he's stepped on the pitch he doesn't think about contracts or these things, he just lives the moment and tries to do his best for whichever team, regardless of where he is playing."
