Mohamed Salah insists he will be at Liverpool (4/7 – Champions League Outright) next season but refused to reveal whether he will be signing a new contract and is instead focusing his immediate efforts on Saturday’s Champions League final.
Egypt international Salah has been a revelation since arriving at Anfield from Roma in 2017 and he will be hoping to land his second Champions League title with the Reds this weekend, having lifted the trophy in 2019.
However, the 29-year-old’s contract with Liverpool (2/1 – Premier League 2022/23 Outright) expires in the summer of 2023 and there is said to be plenty of interest in his services ahead of the upcoming transfer window, with Paris Saint-Germain believed to be heading the queue.
Talks between Salah’s representatives and the Reds are ongoing, with both parties hoping a resolution can be found sooner rather than later, but the forward has eased fears of a potential exit this summer.
Speaking at a press conference, Salah said: “I’m just focused on the team and winning the Champions League again. I want to see Hendo (Jordan Henderson) with the trophy in the hands and hopefully he gives it to me.
“I don’t want to talk about the contract now, I’m staying next season for sure, that’s clear.”
While Salah has confirmed he will be playing for the club next season, Sadio Mane, whose contract also expires next summer, has revealed he will be giving an update on his future after Saturday’s final.
He told Sky Sports News: “This question [about my future] I will answer after Champions League. If I’m staying or not, I’m going to answer after Champions League.”
The Senegal international, who has scored 120 goals in 268 games for Liverpool, is believed to be a target for Europe’s other top clubs, most notably Bayern Munich, and there are claims he could be tempted into a move away from Merseyside.
