At the end of his contract with Liverpool in a year and a half, Mohamed Salah is in negotiations with the Reds to extend.
Author of a tremendous start to the season with 23 goals in all competitions, including 16 in the Premier League, Mohamed Salah confirms if he needed it that he is one of the best players in the Premier League.

But according to the English press, fairly unanimous on this subject, “Mo” Salah is claiming more than 500,000 euros per week for extend to Liverpool, an amount between 28 and 29 million euros per year. An amount however “Not crazy” according to the main interested party, who spoke about his future on the sidelines of the African Cup of Nations that he is playing in January with Egypt.

“I want to stay, but it’s up to them (editor’s note: the leaders of Liverpool) to decide. They know what I’m asking for and it’s not a crazy amount. I know the club where I have been for five years well. I love the fans, they love me. But the management knows what I’m expecting “ Mohamed Salah launched in the columns of GQ magazine, putting pressure on the leaders of Liverpool. At the microphone of Egyptian television two days ago, the Liverpool striker had made similar comments. “I have said several times that if the decision is up to me, I want to stay at Liverpool. But this decision is in the hands of management, and they must resolve this issue. I am happy in Liverpool ” he had explained. It now remains to be seen whether the Reds leadership will be on the same page as their striker, who estimates that an estimated annual salary of nearly € 28m is nothing short of ” crazy “.
