Now that the transfer window has closed, the biggest player related story with Liverpool is where or not Mo Salah is going to sign a new contract. The rumours are flying, of course, and everyone has an opinion. Go to Liverpool pundit Jamie Carragher was on Sky Sports giving his opinion on the matter”
“It’s not just about Jordan Henderson today,” Carragher said, “it’s about the group of players who have signed long-term contracts. I think Liverpool have some of the best players in the world, with Alisson signing a six-year deal and Virgil van Djik. I think Mohamed Salah will be the next one to sign.”
It’s likely that Salah will want to be the highest paid player at the club. Perhaps in previous, more “normal” seasons, Salah would have left the club.
“In years gone by, certainly when I was at the club, if we had players of that quality, they would be going to Real Madrid or Barcelona.” Carragher said. “We’ve lost so many players over the years, but the club this year hasn’t spent much in the transfer market. We’ve brought Konate in for £36m, and we’ve certainly recouped that through the sales.
“I think the money and expenditure this pre-season was going to go on new contracts, so that those players can stay at Liverpool for the rest of their careers.
“Jordan’s the next one and follows Andy Robertson, Fabinho also and I expect Salah to do so.”
