Mohamed Salah likely won’t get even his second-choice future, according to reports. The Egyptian is a little outspoken about things.
Mohamed Salah has, once again, spoken about his future with a Spanish newspaper. This time it’s Marca.
When asked if he would like to play in La Liga, Salah answered ‘why not?’ and that he didn’t know where his future was. In other words, he didn’t say ‘no, I’m a Liverpool player right now’.
According to the Daily Mail, Salah almost certainly isn’t getting sold. Teams would have to stump up £100m+ and no one in Spain is able to do that right now.
The report then states that if Salah stayed, he’d want a new contract. Well, apparently, that’s unlikely, too.

Liverpool aren’t in any rush to offer him a new deal, with his current one ending in 2023. They’re playing things safe after an financially-hit season or two.
So Salah may talk to papers and kick up rumours about his future but it seems the reality is very simple – nothing will change. No move, no contract.
What RTK has to say
This stuff is all really strange. As we’ve said before, Liverpool hold all the cards here.
They have no need to sell and it’s unlikely anyone can afford him, even if Liverpool put him on the market. So we’re not sure why Salah is so open about potentially moving.
But perhaps that’s why – there’s no real harm in it. He probably would like to sample La Liga at some point and it just being honest.
He’s thrived in the Premier League and succeeded in Serie A. Maybe La Liga is next.
But he either waits two years and leaves when he’s 31 or Liverpool decide to cash in either this summer or the next. Those are the options, so the Reds don’t have much to worry about.
