Mohamed Salah has a fan, Barça’s new manager, but the Egyptian footballer would rather stay in the Premier League than head to Camp Nou.


What did Mohamed Salah say?

The 29-year-old says he’s glad to hear Barcelona want to sign him but insists he would rather stay in Liverpool. Recent reports in Spain claim that the new boss, Xavi, is determined to bring the Egyptian footballer to the Camp Nou as his side looks to intensify their attack. Egyptian International is in talks to sign a contract extension with Anfield, but its current deal is due to expire in summer 2023.

Though flattered by the interest from the Catalan team, Mohamed is determined to devote his future to Liverpool. Mohamed Salah said he read what was said about Xavi’s interest in signing it. According to Mohamed Salah this is what makes him happy that a team like Barcelona is interested, but Salah is happy at Liverpool and they will see what the future holds. At the moment, Mohamed Salah prefers to stay in the Premier League, as it is the strongest league in the world.


Salah wants to stay in Liverpool

Although Mohamed would have preferred to stay in England, he acknowledged that the decision could spiral out of his control, as he waits for the club and his agent to come to an agreement. Mohamed Salah added that he said this several times, if the decision is for him, he wants to stay in Liverpool. But the decision is in the hands of the leadership and they must resolve this issue. There is no problem, but they have to reach an agreement on the contract. It depends on them.

“Your financial value shows how much the club appreciates you and that they are ready to do everything to keep you, but the decision itself is not based only on those financial issues,” he said. According to Mohamed Salah, there are things like the ambitions of the team and the coach and what the coach wants to do with the team and the players he wants. These are all important points when making a decision.
