Rumours have been rife about the Liverpool player wanting a move away from the club
All throughout the season, news of Mohamed Salah aspiring to leave Liverpool have been doing the rounds. Ever since the player spoke about his desire to play for Barcelona or Real Madrid previously this season, reports have persistently linked the Liverpool top scorer to a move away from the Premier League side.
Salah Talks Up Move To Spain
And Salah’s recent comments on the topic have only added fire to the ever flickering embers. Quizzed about a potential transfer to Spain after his showing with Egypt on Monday, Salah yet again refused to shut down the links.
“It’s not up to me,” Salah said after his recent outing with Egypt.
“We’ll see what happens but I prefer not to talk about that now.”
Salah added: “I hope to be able to play for many more years. Why not? “No one knows what’s going to happen in the future, so… maybe one day, yes.”
Salah’s constant comments paired with his irked reactions on the pitch have seen many contemplate his future at Liverpool. The player has been spotted being miffed on a couple of occasions after being substituted midway during matches by Jurgen Klopp.
“It’s a normal relationship between two professionals,” Salah replied after being asked about his relationship with Klopp. “That’s how I’d describe it.”
Despite him clearly not being his best this term, Salah has still managed to once again emerge as Liverpool’s top scorer. The player has gone onto net on 17 occasions, performances which are bound to make Liverpool pull out all stops to hang onto his services.
Salah will now be returning to Liverpool after featuring for Egypt during the international break. The player will be veering up to take on Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, a match Salah has added incentive to perform well in.
“That game is in the past, so I don’t think about it,” Salah said. “I’m thinking about the team. Everyone is focused on their team and everyone wants to win… that’s it,” Salah had said after Liverpool drew Real Madrid in the showpiece tournament.
