After months of reported impasse in the negotiations, Mohamed Salah has moved closer to signing a new contract with Liverpool, according to the Mirror.
With the current deal set to expire in 2023 and talks over a new one going on for a long time, numerous reports have claimed there was a seriously wide gap between the Egyptian’s wage demands and what the club were willing to offer. Salah was said to be holding out for a figure which would reflect his status as one of the best players in the world, while Liverpool sought to keep their perfectly-working wage structure intact and kept in mind the fact that Salah will be turning 30 this summer. No reliable journalist mentioned concrete figures, however.
But this latest story suggests Salah is now willing to reconsider his stance after the recent disappointments at international level. His Egypt were beaten in African Cup of Nations final on penalties by Sadio Mane’s Senegal, and again by the same opponent in the same manner in the World Cup qualifications play-offs.
Salah did openly say a while back that he would love to remain at Anfield for the rest of his career and that playing against Liverpool would make him sad.
