Mohamed Salah has put doubt on his prospects at Liverpool by admitting he will be interested in a move to Spain. The Egyptian forward shocked Liverpool when he revealed in December that he would be open to joining LaLiga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Salah, 28, has been a sensation at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp since joining Roma in 2017, scoring 119 goals in 192 appearances and winning the Champions League and Premier League.
Salah’s deal expires in the summer of 2023, and in an interview with Marca, he admitted that he might depart Anfield for a move to Spain in the future.
When asked if he wants to play in Spain, Salah, who is currently on international duty with Egypt, responded, ‘I want to be able to play for several more years. What’s the harm? Nobody knows what will happen in the future. So… maybe one day. It’s not my decision. We’ll see what happens, so I’d rather not do it right now. Who knows what the future holds, but for now I’m concentrating on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again.’
When pressed more on his future, Salah maintained that everything was in the hands of Liverpool, adding: ‘That’s a difficult issue, but right now I can guarantee that everything is in the hands of the club. Of course, I want to break records here and, again, all the club records,’ he says, ‘but this is in the hands of the club.’
Salah has been ice cold in front of a goal for the defending Premier League champions, scoring 25 goals in 40 games and leading the chase for the Premier League’s Golden Boot.
