Fresh insight provided into Mo Salah's contract demands amid Liverpool negotiations


 

A fresh insight into the ongoing contract negotiations between Premier League heavyweights Liverpool and star man Mohamed Salah has been provided on Sunday afternoon.

The subject of Salah's future has of course taken its position centre stage in the media of late.

This comes amid Liverpool's efforts to tie their star man down for the long-term.

The season to date has seen Salah establish himself as not only largely the Premier League's standout performer but, in the eyes of many, the most in-form player in world football.

All told, across the 2021/22 campaign to date, the Egyptian has racked up an eye-watering twenty eight goals and ten assists in just thirty six appearances.

'Not a crazy salary'

As such, it should come as little surprise to hear that those in a position of power at Anfield have begun stepping up their efforts to tie the gifted wide-man down for the foreseeable future.

Salah's current terms on Merseyside are due to expire in the summer of 2023, opening the door to a potential departure down the line.

Those of a Liverpool persuasion will therefore no doubt be intrigued to hear of a fresh insight into the situation being provided this weekend.

The info comes courtesy of transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who, during an appearance on the Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE podcast, confirmed that the hierarchy on the red half of Merseyside have every intention of making Salah the best-paid member of Jurgen Klopp's ranks.

This, however, does not mean that the club are prepared to blow up their wage structure for the former Chelsea man, culminating in, as things stand, something of an impasse in negotiations:

''They want to make him the best-paid player in the team but not with a crazy salary,'' Romano explained. ''Mo is not accepting that because if you look at other clubs in other countries too, and not just in the Premier League, not just at Manchester City, in other countries, players have crazy salaries and they are normal players.''

''Mo is always playing, always delivering, playing all the top games in the season and never has serious injuries, and he wants an important contract. It’s the final top contract of his career, he is 30 [years old] now.''
