Liverpool and Mohamed Salah’s camp are confident soon reaching an agreement over a new contract.
The Sunday World says Liverpool have been hoping to tie Salah down to a new contract in lengthy contract talks in recent months and now speculation is mounting that a deal could be close.
Salah’s current Liverpool contract expires in the summer of 2023, with reports suggesting the Egyptian is pushing for a lavish deal worth £500,000-a-week are wide of the mark.
Instead, a structured deal has been under negotiation that will see Salah receive a big signing on fee and a contract that will include loyalty bonuses and performance related payments.
That would allow Liverpool’s owners to keep the wage bill under control, while also rewarding their star man with a contract that justifies his status as one of the club’s all-time great forwards.
Today, Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas teased Liverpool fans after posting to social media a photo of the pair amid speculation over the forward’s new proposed contract.
Both Abbas and Salah can be seen in the photo shared on social media this morning, with the Liverpool forward laughing away while his representative appears to be using his phone just behind him.
