After the exits of Sadio Mane and Divock Origi, Liverpool are weighing up the option of selling Mo Salah. Salah’s contract runs down in the summer of 2023 and renewal has not been agreed upon by the two parties.
The Reds and the forward have been in talks for months over a new contract only to find no solution. However, Salah made his stance clear on a potential exit from the club this summer before the UCL finals.
“I am staying next season for sure.”
Why is Liverpool considering a sale for Salah?
In an interesting turn of events, Liverpool wants to let go of their top scorer in the English top-flight. However, it so happens that the Reds no longer want to comply with Salah’s new demands in wages.
The Liverpool forward wants to earn £160,000 per-week more than Virgil van Dijk, the highest earner in the squad. Not so interesting now, is it?
However, the club has changed its motive regarding the player and could very well facilitate a transfer for the forward. As it stands, Salah could leave the club on a free next summer and Liverpool does not want to let him leave for no fee.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has made some impact signings this summer with the arrivals of Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho. What came as a surprise for fans to see their top scorer leave, now seems like a real possibility.
Klopp could turn to the new signings and the likes of Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, and Roberto Firmino up front next season. The gaffer has groomed many players including Mane and Salah as they have both flourished into becoming attacking beasts.
Therefore, it would not be a great deal to groom the newcomers joining the camp next season. Liverpool fans could be ready for another heartbreak in Salah’s exit after the departure of Mane to Bayern.
However, it could be the dawn of a new squad with Nunez taking charge of the attack for Liverpool next season.
