Salah has stated that he would prefer to continue his career with Liverpool, but that his future is “not in my hands.” The Egypt international is in the final two years of his Liverpool contract, and despite the club recently extending the contracts of Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Andy Robertson, and Trent Alexander-Arnold, no new deal for their top scorer has been negotiated.
To ensure Salah’s long-term future, Liverpool’s owner, Fenway Sports Group, will have to sanction the most lucrative contract in the club’s history. The 29-year-old, who became the first player in club history to score in nine straight games this week, is currently on a £200,000-a-week incentivised deal. Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne makes £385,000 each week, while Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is said to earn a similar amount.
In an interview with Sky Sports in the buildup to Liverpool’s visit to United on Sunday, Salah has made his intentions clear to FSG. He said: “If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands. It depends on what the club want, not on me.
