Mohamed Salah rejects Liverpool contract offer as his preferences become clear

Mohamed Salah has rejected Liverpool’s latest contract offer and is awaiting a better deal in order to commit his future to the club.

The Egyptian’s current contract runs until the summer of 2023 but the Reds are desperate to tie him down to a new long-term contract as soon as possible to fend off interest from European suitors.

But, The Guardian claims Liverpool’s latest offer in December was knocked back by Salah and his team and discussions have since broken down.

Salah’s intention remains to stay at Anfield but he feels he deserves better terms than what he’s currently being offered by the club.

Jurgen Klopp recently downplayed any suggestions of problems surrounding his future but Salah’s agent seems to have another view.

On Friday, Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa posted seven laughing emojis on Twitter in response to Klopp’s press conference comments.

‘I think Mo definitely expects this club to be ambitious and we are. It’s Mo’s decision,’ Klopp said.

‘The club did what it can do. It is all fine. All fine from my point of view. Nothing has happened further, no signing, no rejection, we just have to wait. Completely fine, no rush.’

Salah has previously gone public with his desire to stay at Liverpool, the club he’s helped to win the UEFA Champions League and Premier League since joining from Serie A giants Roma in 2017.

However, The Guardian claim that should he fail to agree a new deal he would be open to joining a rival in England. And speaking this month, Jamie Carragher urged Liverpool and the player to reach an agreement in the interest of both parties.

‘You’d say every club would love to have Mo Salah but paying someone or taking someone at the age of 32 and giving them a massive contract… when a lot of these teams have maybe got (Kylian) Mbappe, they’ve got (Erling) Haaland), they’ve got the younger generation coming through,’ he said.

‘I think it’d be mad for Liverpool to let him go but I think it would be mad for Mo Salah to leave Liverpool because I think this club and Jurgen Klopp have been great for him as well.’
