Boss Jurgen Klopp states he is ‘very positive’ about the chance of Mohamed Salah lengthening his Liverpool contract beyond the end of next season.
Salah, states his future is in Liverpool’s hands and that he is not asking for “crazy things” amidst reports he wants £300,000-a-week pay.
“I know that Mo wants to stay. We want Mo to stay. That’s where we are. It takes time,” stated Klopp.
“I think it’s in a good place. The fans are not as nervous as [the media] are.”
Klopp appended: “I’m very positive about it. It’s nothing to worry about; it’s a normal process.”
Salah has scored 148 goals in 229 games for Liverpool since joining from Roma in summer 2017.
His streak of goal-scoring form aided Liverpool triumph a sixth European title in 2019 and conclude a 30-year wait for the domestic league title the coming season.
“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,” Salah voice.
Klopp proposed that Salah’s agent added another aspect to discussions.
“There are so many things in negotiations,” he appended. “It’s a third party too, with the agent.”
Salah’s representative Ramy Abbas Issa fetched attention on social media in August when he tweeted “I hope they are watching,” apparently in relation to Salah’s man-of-the-match performance in Liverpool’s opening weekend victory over Norwich.
