Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah looks increasingly likely to leave the club at the end of this season, according to a worrying new update over his future.
The 31-year-old has enjoyed a stunning Reds career since joining from Roma back in the summer of 2017, becoming one of the greatest players in the club’s history.
Salah has scored 195 goals in 317 appearances for Liverpool, not to mention also registering 78 assists, and he is arguably one of the most relentless attacking players to have ever played in the Premier League.
The Egyptian has started this season in impressive form, netting nine times in all competitions, but there is always the looming threat that this could be his final year in a Reds shirt.
Salah’s current deal expires in the summer of 2025, but there was strong interest in him from Saudi Arabia during the summer transfer window, and that could easily return next year.
In fact, Football Insider claim that the legendary attacker is “increasingly likely to quit Liverpool’ at that point, with Saudi officials “working behind the scenes” to snap up both him and Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.
Salah’s move there is “expected to go through” next summer, which would bring an end to one of the most remarkable Liverpool careers in memory.
Our thoughts on Salah leaving Liverpool in 2024…
As the report alludes to, it does feel increasingly as though Salah’s time at Anfield is nearing its conclusion, in what represents a massive blow for the club.
Granted, he will be 32 next year and Liverpool would receive huge money for his services, but he is a once-in-a-generation type of attacking wide player, producing such staggering numbers of showing unbelievable levels of consistency at the same time, not to mention rarely getting injured.
Given the manner in which Salah looks after himself fitness-wise, he is more than capable of playing at the very top for another three or four years, and it would be a real waste to see him head to the Saudi Pro League in 2024.
The hope is that there is a twist in the saga and the Egyptian King decides to commit his future to Liverpool, but at this point, there does seem to be an inevitability about his exit happening.
