Mohamed Salah has told Sky Sports it is not the right time to talk about his contract situation at Liverpool with the club looking to secure a historic quadruple.
Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool future has been a talking points for months with the Egypt international due to enter the final 12 months of his existing deal this summer.
According to Daily Mail earlier this week, it’s reported that Salah is ready prepared to compromise on his initial demands of earning more than £400,000 a week and commit his future at Anfield in a contract which will keep him at Liverpool until the end of his career.
However, the Egypt International has played down his contract talks ahead of Manchester City’s clash as he believes it would be “selfish” to think about himself and his position now, with the club in the midst of an unprecedented pursuit of honours.
When asked about what he could say about his contract situation at Liverpool, he said: “Well not much but honestly, but what I can say is there many things people don’t know about it.
“I can’t be selfish and talk about my situation. We are in the most important period for the team so I have to just talk about the team, focus on what is coming with the team and that is the most important thing.
“That is all I can say. Hopefully we are going to be more optimistic and see what is going to happen.”
When asked if he was confident a new contract would be sorted out at Liverpool, he added: “I can’t say yes, I can’t say no but I have said many times before about what I want. But again, I can’t go deep into my contract now because it is a really sensitive situation.”
“The team need to win and I can’t be just going into the news and just talking about my contract. I just focus with the team, and that is it.”
Liverpool have tied down a number of senior players to new deals this season, but fans are still waiting for Salah to sign a new contract.
