Another day, another Mohamed Salah whisper. This one comes from to Téléfoot (via Canal Supporters / PSG Talk). Paris Saint-German could be parting ways with star forward Kylian Mbappe, with whom a contract extension is yet to be agreed upon. Among the various possible replacements, PSG’s owners in Qatar are rumored to be very interested in Salah.

The report also suggests that a number of other players are on their radar in a similar capacity - coach Mauricio Pochettino is apparently keen to reunite with his former frontman Harry Kane. And Lionel Messi is reportedly coveted by the sporting director, since he will be available without a transfer fee.

PSG’s owners are said to have established contact with Salah’s representatives, according to the report.

Such rumors around Salah’s future are going to proliferate, as his contract renewal approaches. However, an immediate move is unlikely, given that Liverpool have indicated their commitment to arriving at an agreement with him. He is currently the joint top scorer in the Premier League with Harry Kane, and is on track to break new records at Liverpool. Exiting while he has the opportunity to lead the club to more success in the near future would be an unlikely and unusual outcome.
