Mohamed Salah finally on brink of agreeing new Liverpool contract for rest of his career

The story surrounding Mohamed Salah's new Liverpool contract appears to be coming to an end, with the Egyptian set to sign a new contract to stay at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah is close to signing a new deal with Liverpool that will keep him at the club till the end of his career.

A change of heart from the 29-year-old Egypt international has boosted Anfield’s prospects of finally putting an end to the long-running dispute surrounding his new contract, giving Reds manager Jurgen Klopp a major boost.

Mohamed Salah finally on brink of agreeing new Liverpool contract for rest of his career

Salah’s owners were fearful that if he turned down new terms that would have paid him £400,000 per week, he would let his existing deal expire, leaving him a free agent in the summer of 2023.

This would have put him open to summer offers from big-name clubs like Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

Salah is now willing to compromise on his initial demands of matching Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo’s £500,000-a-week wage package. Salah appreciates the affection for him on Merseyside, which was once again displayed this week in Liverpool consoling him over Egypt’s failure to qualify for the World Cup finals.

That may mean an extra year on top of the three years previously planned, thereby allowing him to finish out the prime years of his career with the club he joined over five years ago.

Salah’s readiness to commit his future to Liverpool will be welcomed by the red half of the city and will provide a crucial boost to Liverpool’s quest for an unprecedented quadruple.

Salah has always maintained that he enjoys his life at Liverpool, but he wants his status as one of the best players in the world to be replicated with a pay to match. After a change of heart, he is now prepared to accept the offer that has been on the table for quite some time.

Liverpool are aiming for an unprecedented quadruple this season, with Klopp earlier stating that Salah’s contract negotiations would have “no chance” of impeding their pursuit for silverware, following an apparent veiled jab from the Egyptian’s agent on social media.

“This season, everyone is absolutely dedicated,” Klopp remarked last month. The squad has made a clear commitment for this season, and then we’ll talk about the rest – the future, the near future, and the future. Mo isn’t the kind of guy for that. If I don’t line him up, his mood will deteriorate. That is possible, but not against the team or in any other situation.

“It’s just that I believe it’s as it should be right now.” The key players are in contact, and the rest will be seen. Everyone has made a commitment. We could have certain players who don’t play enough or aren’t part of the squad enough, and they could create a negative vibe. They don’t have any. They are not going to do so. And Mo isn’t the kind for it.”
