Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah has been in negotiations with Liverpool over a new deal, with his current contract set to expire as soon as the end of next season

Mohamed Salah has revealed that he wants to sign a lifelong contract at Liverpool.

The Egyptian forward joined the Reds from Roma in 2017 and has gone on to win the Champions League and the Premier League in his four years at the club.

With his contract set to expire at the end of next season, it has been rumoured that the 29-year-old is in negotiations with the club over a new deal.

He has now revealed in an interview that he wants to secure a long-term future with the club by signing a lifelong contract with the six-time European champions.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Salah said: “It does not depend with me, but if you ask me I would love to stay until last day of my football (career).

“But I cannot say much about it, nothing is in my hands.

“It depends on what the club want, it does not depend on me.

“At the moment, I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard. I don’t want to talk about it but it would make me really sad if I did. At the moment I don’t see myself playing against Liverpool but let’s see what will happen in the future.”

Salah signed his current contract in the summer of 2018, following an impressive debut season at Anfield that saw him score 44 goals as Liverpool reached the Champions League final.

Those goals included 32 in the Premier League as the former Chelsea man scooped the first of his two Premier League Golden Boots.

He has continued in similar form since and has already found the back of the net 12 times in just 11 appearances in all competitions.

This stunning form has seen some fans and pundits hail the winger as the ‘best in the world’ thanks to his goalscoring exploits this season.

A number of other key players at Anfield have also signed new deals recently, with Jordan Henderson, Andrew Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold all tied down to long term contracts this summer.

Salah looks set to be the next to renew his contract, but it is unclear whether he will. Brinkwire presents summary news.
