Mohamed Salah says money isn’t everything over extending his stay at Anfield
Mohamed Salah has dropped more hints about his Liverpool contract and strongly implied he wants to stay at Anfield – adding money is not everything when it comes to extending his stay on Merseyside.
The Premier League’s top scorer has been in negotiations with Liverpool for some time over a new contract, but an agreement has not yet been finalised with his existing deal due to expire next summer.
However, Salah, who turns 30 in June, has stressed the negotiations are not just about money. Speaking to FourFourTwo about whether he was confident his future would lie at Liverpool, he said: “I don’t know, I have one year left. I think the fans know what I want, but in the contract it’s not everything about the money at all. So I don’t know, I can’t tell you exactly. I have one year left and the fans know what I want.
“This club means a lot to me – I’ve enjoyed my football here more than anywhere, I gave the club everything and everybody saw that. I’ve had a lot of unbelievable moments here, winning trophies, individual goals, individual trophies. It’s like a family here.”
Salah seems confident he would still be at Liverpool next season regardless of whether a new contract was signed – not envisaging a move away from the club this summer.
“Yeah. Er, I think so?” he said, “but if they want me to go, that’s something different!”
Salah also insisted he’s not concerned about going into the last 12 months of his current deal without a resolution.
“I’m not worried, I don’t let myself worry about something,” he said. “The season didn’t finish yet, so let’s finish it in the best possible way – that’s the most important thing. Then in the last year, we’re going to see what’s going to happen.”
