Liverpool didn’t do much business on the incoming front over the summer. The Reds only signed the one player. Thereafter is was all about sales, loans and renewals. One key star didn’t pen a new deal. Simon Hughes has claimed Liverpool and Mo Salah aren’t negotiating a new contract at the minute.
Liverpool contract spree
Over the summer Kopites were begging for a midfielder and a forward following the signing of Ibrahima Konate.
Instead the club focused on tying the current crop down to extended contracts.
Alisson Becker committed to the longest deal, extending until 2027.
Meanwhile, Andy Robertson and Fabinho will stay with the club until at least 2026.
In addition we saw Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nat Phillips, Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk agree deals until 2025.
Mo Salah contract
Plenty of Kopites were left wondering why the Egyptian King hasn’t penned a new deal.
Simon Hughes has delivered an update on the Mo Salah contract situation.
The journalist had worrying news for the Red Agenda Podcast:
“As I understand, there isn’t any negotiation going on at the moment. I think there should be, I think he’s Liverpool’s best attacking player, I think he could play for a very long time.”
What RTK has to say
Liverpool have to get this sorted.
Mo Salah needs a new contract immediately. His consistency is staggering, he’s not slowing down at all.
He always comes up with the goods when we need him, we can’t risk losing him on a free transfer.
The only way this makes sense is if we’re swapping him for an absolute superstar and that seems unlikely.
Hopefully things change in the near future but until they do we’re going to be biting our fingernails.
