Jamie Carragher offers a firm prediction on Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool.
Jamie Carragher is aware of Liverpool’s transfer priorities for the summer.
Mohamed Salah is expected to sign a new long-term contract at Liverpool, according to former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher. The Reds made it a priority to re-sign their finest players during the summer transfer window, and Salah might be the next to do so.
In the transfer window, Jurgen Klopp only recruited one player to his team, RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate, who cost £36 million.
Some fans have been left disgruntled after Premier League title rivals Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United all completed sensational moves.
However, Liverpool has spent a significant portion of its cash on contract extensions for key players, most recently extending Jordan Henderson’s contract until 2024.
In recent months, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, and Fabinho have all signed new contracts at Anfield.
Salah is expected to be the next Liverpool player to commit his future to the club, according to Carragher.
He told Sky Sports, “It’s not only about Jordan Henderson today, it’s about the group of players who have signed long-term contracts.”
“I believe Liverpool has some of the top players in the world, with Alisson and Virgil van Djik getting six-year contracts. Mohamed Salah, I believe, will be the next to sign.
“If we had players of that level in the past, definitely when I was at the club, they would have gone to Real Madrid or Barcelona.
“We’ve lost a lot of players throughout the years, but the club hasn’t spent much money on transfers this year.
“We brought Konate in for £36 million, and the sales have more than covered that.
“I believe the money spent this pre-season on new contracts will allow those players to remain at Liverpool for the rest of their lives.
“Jordan is up next, and he will be followed by Andy Robertson, Fabinho, then Salah.”
Carragher understands Liverpool fans’ dissatisfaction with the club’s lack of transfer activity, but feels that next summer will be different.
“I know there’s irritation among Liverpool fans that they’re not getting involved in the transfer market, especially when you see what Manchester City and Chelsea are doing with £100 million players,” he remarked.
“Manchester United is also bringing in Ronaldo, but I believe the majority of the money spent by Liverpool is on wages, which some people cannot comprehend.
