Liverpool ‘confident of Mo Salah agreement soon’ despite £500k-a-week demands

Liverpool are 'confident' to signing Mohamed Salah to a new contract until 2025 despite the Egyptian demanding £500,000-per-week to stay on Merseyside.

Salah is already one of Liverpool highest earners, but Jurgen Klopp sees tying down Salah to a new contract as a top priority.

The 29-year-old only has two years left on his existing deal at Liverpool.

And Klopp is keen to land Salah a new contract to keep him away from the clutches of Real Madrid and PSG, who could swoop in for his signature if he doesn't sign.

But, according to journalist Nicolo Schira, Liverpool are confident he will re-sign.

He tweeted: "#Liverpool are in talks to extend Momo #Salah’s contract until 2025. For coach #Klopp is a priority and #Reds are confident to reach an agreement soon."

If Salah puts pen-to-paper on a new deal, he will become the latest in a spate of stars to sign new deals.

Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Allison, and Trent Alexander-Arnold have all recently extended their stays.

Klopp looked to secure his current stars over the summer rather than bolster his squad with new additions.

The Mirror are reporting that Liverpool are prepared to give Salah a hefty pay rise, but they won't break their wage structure with a £500,000-per week wage.

However, both sides are keen to extend his stay at Liverpool.
