Mohamed Salah’s career path has been ‘disrupted’ due to a contract dispute between Liverpool and him.
Mohamed Salah has yet to sign a new deal with Liverpool.
According to sources, Mohamed Salah did not intend to be a Liverpool player at this stage of his career due to the ongoing standoff over a new deal. In the summer, the Reds signed several first-team players to new contracts, but Salah is yet to prolong his stay at Anfield.
In the lack of many new players during the transfer season, Liverpool focused on re-signing the nucleus of their squad.
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, on the other hand, did not receive a new contract, despite his importance to the team’s success under Jurgen Klopp. In less than two years, the Egyptian’s current contract will end.
Salah has until January 2023 to determine his future with Liverpool before he can speak to international clubs about a free move in the summer of that year.
Salah had expected to leave Liverpool by now, but his plans have now been ‘disrupted,’ according to reports.
According to the Independent, the 29-year-old planned to join Real Madrid as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The LaLiga giants’ move for Eden Hazard, who signed with Los Blancos in the summer of 2019, scuppered that move.
Salah’s problem is that Hazard’s departure – as well as Antoine Griezmann’s move to Barcelona in the same summer – has made Europe’s top clubs wary of signing players in their late 20s to lucrative contracts.
Since joining Real Madrid from Chelsea, Hazard has struggled to impress. In 51 games for Real, the Belgian has only five goals.
Griezmann was also unable to replicate his Atletico Madrid form at Barcelona. In 102 games, he scored 35 goals and has now returned to Atletico on a long-term loan.
Salah’s greatest years are now likely to be spent with Liverpool.
Despite the fact that it is widely assumed that the Reds have not yet given the Egyptian a new contract, this is the case. Salah has grown irritated with the delay in negotiating terms, according to The Athletic last week.
