Mohamed Salah’s agent has once again silenced the rumors surrounding the Liverpool forward’s potential exit from Anfield this summer. Despite signing a contract extension until 2025 last year, Salah’s future has frequently been in question, with clubs from Saudi Arabia attempting to lure him away from the Premier League.
Reports on Monday suggested that Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad had made a tempting offer to sign Salah, but the player’s representative, Ramy Abbas Issa, took to social media to dismiss any possibility of an exit. He firmly stated that Salah remains committed to Liverpool and would not have renewed his contract last summer if a departure was on the cards.
Salah has been a crucial figure for Liverpool since his arrival from Roma in 2017, surpassing expectations and becoming an all-time great at Anfield. With an impressive record of 186 goals and 79 assists in 305 appearances for the Reds, Salah has solidified his position among the club’s top scorers.
Despite Liverpool’s underwhelming 2022-23 campaign, the Egyptian forward continued to shine, contributing 30 goals and 16 assists from 51 games. Along the way, he achieved personal milestones, becoming Liverpool’s all-time leading Premier League goalscorer and netting his 100th goal at Anfield.
As Liverpool prepares for the new season, Salah remains an integral part of the team’s attack. While competition for places is fierce, the Egyptian captain’s performances have consistently stood out.
With pre-season underway, Salah has already made an impact, scoring a goal in a friendly against Greuther Furth. Liverpool is gearing up for their final friendly against SV Darmstadt 98 before kicking off their Premier League campaign with a match against Chelsea on August 13.
