In his final year at Anfield, Liverpool manager Michael Edwards faces his toughest test yet.
Michael Edwards has a difficult final few months ahead of him at Liverpool.
According to sources, Liverpool transfer manager Michael Edwards is up against his toughest hurdle yet in securing a new contract for Mohamed Salah. The outgoing sporting director was unable to get a new contract for the star forward.
Liverpool spent the summer renewing contracts with the core of their squad in the absence of new signings, but Salah was not one of them.
Virgil van Dijk has signed a new contract after returning from injury. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, and Jordan Henderson also contributed ideas to the project.
Alisson Becker and Fabinho, both from Brazil, were both given new contracts.
Salah, who has been instrumental in Jurgen Klopp’s success, did not receive a new contract. In less than two years, the Egyptian’s current contract will end.
The failure to extend the player’s contract has irritated some supporters.
According to Goal, there has been no progress in negotiations, despite the fact that some Liverpool employees are secretly optimistic that an agreement will be struck.
Edwards is now facing one of his most difficult difficulties in his job, with less than a year till he supposedly steps down.
To make things even more difficult, none of Liverpool’s legendary front three have been offered new contracts. Their contracts are all set to end in 2023.
Despite the fact that the rest of the squad has signed new contracts, Salah and Sadio Mane, both 29, and Roberto Firmino, 30, have not extended their contracts beyond the next two years.
The triumvirate has been crucial to Jurgen Klopp’s success, with the club winning the Premier League and the Champions League in the last two and a half years.
Liverpool’s failure to give Salah a new deal has reportedly irritated him. He compares his situation to Kevin De Bruyne’s, who recently signed a new contract with Manchester City, according to The Athletic.
Despite the fact that Salah is more available to Liverpool than De Bruyne has been for City on numerous occasions. In the last two Premier League seasons, the former Roma star has only missed five games.
This season, he has scored eight goals in all competitions, giving him a total of 133 goals in 211 games for Liverpool.
Klopp, the Reds’ manager, has refused to comment on Salah’s future.
