  • Mohamed Salah’s contract with Liverpool ends next year and the Premier League club are desperate to offer contract extension
  • The Egyptian superstar is yet to sign a new deal as he reportedly wants a staggering £500k-a-week contract
  • Liverpool are said to be unprepared to offer the 28-year-old such an amount, meaning the exit door is open

With Mohamed Salah in the final 18 months of his current contract with Premier League club Liverpool, reports claim the Egyptian could see off his deal and exit the club.

UK outlet Mirror are reporting that the 29-year-old who earns well over £200,000-a-week is yet to renew his contract with the club as Liverpool continue to mount pressure.

The exit door is now left open for Salah as negotiations over a £500k-a-week contract demand is yet to be agreed upon.

No doubt, the Reds are desperate in keeping the in-form superstar, The Telegraph are reporting that consultations would continue for some time as Liverpool are not prepared to agree to the player’s demands.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted what is going on behind the scenes at the club as Liverpool are yet to publicly give an explanation of the situation.

There are concerns that the player could be moving away from the club, but Klopp stated that the player is asking for cr*zy stuff.

Salah said, in an interview with GQ as per SI:

"I want to stay, but it is not in my hands. It is in their hands. They know what I want. I am not asking for crazy stuff.
"The thing is when you ask for something and they show you they can give you something. I have been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well.
"I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have (been) told the situation. It is in their hands."

Reds boss Klopp offered a relaxed response in his press conference when asked about Salah's comments.

Salah builds private pitch in Italy

Meanwhile, Sports Brief earlier reported that Salah recently revealed he had a training pitch built just for him during his time at Italian club AS Roma.

The Liverpool forward spent two seasons in Rome with Roma, initially on loan from Chelsea before making the move permanent.

Salah struggled to nail down a place at the Stamford Bridge club and had never scored more than ten goals in a league season prior to his first season at the Stadio Olimpico in 2015/16.
