Mohamed Salah confirms he will remain at Liverpool next season
Huge news for Liverpool fans.
Mohamed Salah has confirmed that he will remain at Liverpool next season, amid speculation about his future at the club.
Salah's contract runs out in 2023 and talks between the two parties had stagnated as they both sought to find an agreement suitable for everyone.
As a result some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, have been keeping a keen eye on developments and appeared ready to pounce if it became apparent that the Egpyt international wouldn't be staying.
Salah says he won't be leaving Liverpool this summer.
But despite no official confirmation of a new contract being signed from the club, Salah confirmed that no matter what, he will be playing for Liverpool next season.
"I am staying next season for sure, that’s clear," he said when speaking ahead of the Reds' Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday.
"I'm just focused on the team really, I don't want to talk about the contract at the moment now. We have a long time [to discuss it]."
"I don't want to talk about that (his future). I just want to see Hendo [Jordan Henderson] with the trophy!"

Salah and Liverpool are aiming to secure a treble by winning the Champions League final.
Liverpool and Salah are gearing up for their final game of the 2021/22 campaign which has seen them compete on all four fronts for major trophies.
At one stage it looked as if they were well and truly capable of securing a historic quadruple, but after winning the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, they fell just short in their quest for the Premier League as Manchester City staged an incredible comeback to beat them to it by one point.
Nonetheless, it's still been an incredible season for Salah and the club both personally and as a team. Salah shared the Premier League golden boot with Tottenham winger Heung-min Son, scoring 23 goals.
There were some initial scares that Salah may not be fit for Saturday's final in Paris, but having come off the bench and scoring in Liverpool's Premier League final day victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers, he will almost certainly be one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp's team sheet.
