Barcelona ‘hold Mohamed Salah talks’ as Liverpool transfer rumours continue
Barcelona are reportedly ‘not giving up hope’ in signing Mohamed Salah after the forward admitted he did not know what the future will hold for him with his contract expiring in the summer of 2023. Liverpool and Salah are still locked in contract negotiations.
Reportedly, Barcelona have spoken to Salah ‘s entourage and have made it clear they are keen on bringing the Egyptian star to the Nou Camp as they look to rebuild the club.
With 22 goals in the Premier League this season and 12 assists, Salah has expressed his desire to stay at Anfield beyond his current contract expiring, but, first, his demands must be met by the Liverpool owners.
Salah returned to goalscoring ways on Tuesday night with a double in the 4-0 win over Manchester United at Anfield. With Liverpool in pursuit of a historic quadruple, the Egyptian is one of the key cogs in this pursuit of glory.
In an interview with FourFourTwo, Salah said: “I think the fans know what I want. A contract is not just about money, so I don’t know exactly what I can say about my future. I have one year left on my contract and the fans do know what I want.
“In the last year we will see what can happen. Now the most important thing is to finish the season in the best possible way because there are many things at stake. The option of entering his last year of contract without renewing is not even considered by Liverpool that I could see how the Egyptian would come out with the freedom card under hand and would not be able to compete with offers from other teams.”
