EPL: Mo Salah gives update on future with Liverpool
Egyptian forward, Mohamed Salah, has provided the latest update on his future with Liverpool.
Salah said his future with Liverpool is ‘in the hands of the club’s board, insisting that he wants to stay at Anfield.
The former Chelsea star currently has 18 months left on his current contract with Liverpool.
The 29-year-old is said to be demanding wages of around £350,000-a-week, which would smash the Reds’ wage structure and make him Liverpool’s highest-paid player of all time.
But Liverpool is afraid that handing the winger record wages will prompt salary increases across the board, which would help to push the club into a difficult financial situation.
“I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands,” Salah told GQ.
“They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff. The thing is when you ask for something and they show you they can give you something… because they appreciate what you did for the club.
“I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well. I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands.”
