Mohamed Salah has said he is “not asking for crazy stuff” in contract talks, as he reiterated that it is up to Liverpool to decide his future.
Salah, whose deal at Anfield runs out in the summer of 2023, has publicly stated on multiple occasions that he wants to stay at Liverpool.
But the two parties are yet to come to an agreement over new terms for the Premier League’s top scorer, who is currently representing Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations.
“I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands,” Salah told GQ. “They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports last month that the club are having “really good conversations” with Salah over a new deal.
But Salah gives the impression that there is still a hurdle to overcome in negotiations as he seeks reward for playing a leading role in Liverpool’s Champions League and Premier League-winning campaigns.
He added: “The thing is, when you ask for something, and they show you they can give you something [they should] because they appreciate what you did for the club.
“I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well. I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands.” —Sky Sports
