Liverpool agree a new Mohamed Salah deal

Incredible news for Liverpool fans on Monday morning.

Coming completely out of the blue, Liverpool have confirmed that Mohamed Salah has agreed a new five year deal with the club.

Put another way, Salah has now under contract at Liverpool until 2023.

Now, just 12 months after moving to Anfield from AS Roma, Salah has agreed a new five year deal to stay at the club.

What Jurgen Klopp said

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has celebrated the news on the club’s website:

I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season.

It demonstrates two things very clearly also – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.

When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.

‘Anti Real Madrid’ clause

The Times journalist Paul Joyce have dropped a significant piece of news regarding the Salah contract renewal.

In what many will see as an ‘anti Real Madrid’ clause, Salah has no release clause in his new Liverpool deal.

Is that a better tactic than setting Salah’s transfer clause at, for example, one billion pounds?

Rumours linking Salah with a switch to Real Madrid have been swirling around for months. Liverpool fans will hope that those stories now disappear into the darkness.
