Reliable journalist Paul Joyce of The Times gave an update on Mohamed Salah’s contract situation at Liverpool in a recent interview.
The Egyptian is out of contract in the summer of 2023 and so far no deal has been reached to extend his stay at a club where he is adored by fans.
Joyce told YouTube channel KENN7 OFFICIAL that the current standoff is clearly the result of an inability to reach an agreement over money, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
“It’s obviously a question of money, because Salah has said it many times all season, he’s happy at Liverpool.
“Liverpool want him to stay but at the moment the two sides are split on that assessment.
“There doesn’t appear to be any imminent resolution but like all of these things it can change with a phone call.

Salah is not the only player without a contract in the near future with Divock Origi who is reportedly wanted by AC Milan on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Joyce also mentioned the other players who are nearing the end of their current deals.
“You also have above his, Firmino, Mane, Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain, all with 14, 15 months remaining and James Milner at the end of the season.”
