According to Egypt sports minister Ashraf Sobhi, Mohamed Salah intends to sign a new deal with Liverpool.
Sobhi said he advised Salah to leave Anfield for the forward to say he was likely to extend a contract that runs until June of 2023.
“I have advised him to continue his journey at a club other than Liverpool, but his direction now is to renew his contract,” Sobhi said.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said he was “happy” with progress on a new deal with Salah, now 29-years-old.
A few days ago, The Mirror reported that Salah could reach an agreement with the club worth £400,000 per week.
The Egyptian product scored 153 goals in 240 appearances for Liverpool since arriving from Roma in a £34m deal in 2017.
He’s been a huge part of Liverpool winning the Champions League in 2019 and Premier League in 2020.
