Mo Salah is about to enter the final 18 months of his contract.
The Egyptian forward will enter the final 18 months of his Liverpool contract when the January transfer window opens.
Given his performances this season, it’s hard to imagine why he would leave Anfield and play for either Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future.
James Pearce claims that the Reds are pushing to sign a new contract with Salah and believes he could stay longer at the club.
Pearce said: “I just think there’s nothing about Salah in terms of his body language, or the way he’s playing which suggests anything else other than he is incredibly happy. And, I just think it’s a process that they’re obviously going through at the moment, we’ll all be happier when it’s finished.
“But, you look at the way that he leads his life, there’s a lot of talk about whether you should give long extensions to players who are approaching or just gone past their 30th birthdays, we had that discussion with Gini Wijnaldum didn’t we?
“But this is such a different situation. I mean, Salah for a start is in a whole different category to Wijnaldum, there’s no parallels there in terms of its importance to the team and what he’s doing. And I still think he’ll still be doing it 33,34, 35. So giving him another four years to me, it’s just an absolute no-brainer, there’s no risk.”
