Mohamed Salah & Liverpool
Liverpool fans look like they’ll have to wait a little longer before Mohamed Salah is finally revealed as a Reds player.
Monday morning has kicked off with an update from the 25-year-old on social media.
While rumours circled on Sunday that Salah has decided to postpone a trip back to his homeland in order to speed up a move to Anfield, it now appears that those claims were wrong.

That’s because the AS Roma winger has posted three pictures on social media which reveal he’s in Egypt.
Salah posted pictures by the iconic pyramids, which confirmed he’s not arriving at Melwood on Monday.
Is the deal close?
It’s surely 99.9% certain that Liverpool will sign Mohamed Salah from Roma this summer.
Salah’s move to Liverpool has been protracted as the Giallorossi haggle with the Reds, and it’s likely that Roma could eventually agree a 40 million euro deal for the Egyptian winger.
Crucially, Sky Sports revealed on Sunday that “Liverpool are understood to have set a £35m ceiling – including add-ons – for the Egypt international, but that falls short of Roma’s valuation of the player.”
Sky Sports added that personal terms have been agreed between Salah and Liverpool.
