Reliable journalist James Pearce is hopeful that Mohamed Salah will have signed a new Liverpool contract before next summer.
The Lowdown: Salah continues incredible form
The Reds thumped Watford 5-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, with the Egyptian again showing why he is arguably the best player in the world on current form.
He produced a wonderful assist for Sadio Mane’s opener before scoring a solo effort every bit as special as the one against Manchester City before the international break.
The Latest: Pearce provides contract update
Speaking in a Q&A for The Athletic after the Watford game, Pearce claimed he thinks a new deal will be sorted by the summer – if not, FSG could find themselves in a tricky situation. He wrote:
“Hopefully the contract situation will be resolved long before next summer. If not then FSG will have a big decision to make then. Too soon to say which way that would go.”
The Verdict: No excuses, FSG
Frankly, there is no excuse not to extend Salah’s stay at Liverpool – FSG simply must offer him exactly what he wants, given his importance to the team.
The 29-year-old is looking like one of the greatest players in Reds history on current form and the thought of losing him doesn’t bear consideration.
FSG still have plenty of supporters, as well as detractors, but allowing Salah to leave could well be the final straw for many fans considering how immense he has been not only this season, but ever since coming to the club in 2017.
In other news, some Liverpool fans are fuming after a key update emerged in recent days. Read more here.
