Dominik Szobloszlai has said Mohamed Salah has told him and his teammates that he won’t be leaving Liverpool for Saudi Arabia.
The Egyptian international was subject to a £150m offer from the Saudi Arabian side on deadline day, a mammoth bid that Liverpool rejected.
And now it seems like Salah will stay with Liverpool despite rumours that the winger is open on a move to the Middle East, with Szobloszlai speaking out about what the attacker has said.
The 22-year-old Liverpool star said about Salah’s future: “You know it is football, everyone is talking. We are really happy that he has stayed.

“We are of course speaking between each other but he wants to stay, he wants to be here and be with us, and he will stay. We are really happy – we need people in the team like him.”
Salah staying at Liverpool until 2024 is massive
There was genuine fear on deadline day that Salah might leave Liverpool for good as Al-Ittihad ramped up their interest for the 31-year-old in a big way.
However, with the dust now settled, the winger staying at Anfield until 2024 at the earliest is nothing short of massive for Liverpool and the entire club.
Salah is easily Jurgen Klopp’s best-attacking player and will be key in the coming weeks in Liverpool gaining more momentum in their bid to challenge for a UEFA Champions League spot.
