Sky Sports News reporter warns Liverpool FC about new Mo Salah contract
Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims Mohamed Salah could still leave Liverpool FC despite new deal
Dharmesh Sheth has warned Liverpool FC that Mohamed Salah’s new five-year deal doesn’t mean the African forward won’t leave.
The Egypt international put pen to paper on a new long-term deal until 2023 to attempt to end speculation surrounding his future.
Salah was linked with a potential move to La Liga giants FC Barcelona and Real Madrid over the past few months.
Liverpool FC sold Philippe Coutinho in a £142m deal to La Liga champions Barca in January 2018 despite the Brazilian signing a new contract 12 months earlier.
Salah scored 32 times in 36 games in the Premier League in the current campaign to finish as the division’s leading goal-scorer.
The Egypt international won the PFA player of the year ahead of Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.
Salah scored 10 goals in Liverpool FC’s run to the Champions League final before he was forced off in the Kiev showpiece.
Sky Sports News reporter Sheth used Coutinho as an example why Liverpool FC fans should be cautious about Salah’s future.
“It is a real signal of intent from Liverpool,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“It should be noted he originally signed a five-year contract last summer. He has signed a new five-year contract. Significantly, we have been told there is no release clause.
“This is big news for Liverpool. One note of caution is Philippe Coutinho. He signed a five-year contract in January 2017 and in January 2018 he was no longer a Liverpool player.”
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a spot in the Champions League in successive seasons.
