Mohamed Salah is Persistent about staying at Liverpool. The Egyptian Forward has assured that he will be staying at the Merseyside for some more time. There were rumours in the past suggesting that Salah will not renew his contract if his wages don’t get higher. But, Salah has reaffirmed that he wants to remain at Anfield despite tensions mounting up regarding his Contract with the Club.

The 29-year-old’s arrival at Liverpool from AS Roma has proved to be a very successful deal for both sides. Mohamed Salah previously represented Chelsea in the Premier League, but he did not have the best of times with the London outfit. Salah joined the Blues from FC Basel back in 2014 while Jose Mourinho was in charge at Stamford Bridge. However, a poor record and less game time forced the club to send the Egyptian on-loan to Fiorentina in 2015 and AS Roma the following year.

Roma signed Salah on a permanent deal in 2016-17 before Liverpool came calling. Mohamed Salah had a decent record with the Serie A Outfit where he scored 29 goals across 2 seasons. The Reds signed him from Roma before the 2017/18 season and since then Liverpool have become a Major Attacking force in England and all over Europe. Salah scored 32 goals during his first season at the Merseyside and he also helped the club win their first UEFA Champions League title since 2005.

FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly monitoring Salah’s situation at Liverpool

La Liga giants, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are continued to be credited with an interest in Salah. However, the Egyptian is keen to stay with Liverpool, if an agreement over fresh terms can be reached.

Mohamed Salah has been very crucial for Liverpool since his arrival. Many labelled him as a one-season wonder after the end of the 2017/18 season when he netted 32 goals in the English Top-flight. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old did wonders with the club after a Trophy-less first season. Under Head coach Jurgen Klopp, the Reds got to the UEFA Champions League Final for the first time since 2007.

The Merseyside lost to Real Madrid, who won their 3rd Consecutive European Title under Manager Zinedine Zidane. Salah was forcefully subbed off after Sergio Ramos fouled him and broke his hand. The whole complexion of the match changed after Salah was forced off the field as Liverpool lost by 3-1.

However, the Reds made a strong comeback the following season. They reached their Second UCL Final in a row and this time they were against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds won the Final in a commanding 2-0 Victory at the Wanda Metropolitano. It was their 6th UCL title and first since 2004/05 under the captaincy of club legend Steven Gerrard.

“I said it several times, if the decision is up to me, I want to stay in Liverpool. But the decision is in the hands of the management and they have to solve this issue. There is no problem but we have to reach an agreement for the contract. It’s up to them.

Your financial value shows how much the club appreciates you. And they are ready to do anything for you to stay, but the decision itself is not based on those financial matters only.

There are things like the ambition of the team and the coach and what he wants to do with the team and the players he wants. These are all important points when making the decision.”

The 29-year-old Egyptian also helped the Reds to win their First English Top-flight trophy after 30 years during the 2019/20 season.
