Liverpool attacker, Mohamed Salah
would allegedly be tempted at the
prospect of taking on a new challenge in
Spain or with Paris Saint-Germain this
summer.

Despite a lengthy period of
negotiations, the ex-Roma and Chelsea
man is yet to reach an agreement to
extend his stay at Afield beyond the
end of next season.

Jurgen Klopp’s new contract until 2026
led to renewed optimism of a possible
extension for Salah, who has hinted that
he wants to stay with the quadruple-
chasing Reds, so long as his demands
are met.

However, the Egypt international will
become a free agent in under 18
months’ time as things stand, leaving
Liverpool in a tricky situation ahead of
the summer transfer window.

Salah memorably refused to rule out a
move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona
back in 2020, but it now seems unlikely
that either club will make a move for the
29-year-old.

Los Blancos are still working on a deal to
bring Kylian Mbappe to the club from
PSG, while Barcelona’s long-running
financial problems could scupper a
move for Salah.

Should Real Madrid pull off a deal for
Mbappe, the Ligue 1 champions will be
eyeing a replacement for the 23-year-
old, as well as soon-to-be free agent
Angel Di Maria.

Now, The Telegraph reports that
Liverpool will consider selling Salah in
the upcoming market if he fails to
commit his future to the club, and he
could be tempted by a move to PSG.

The prospect of linking up with Lionel
Messi and Neymar in a star-studded
frontline could appeal to the 29-year-
old, although PSG are thought to be
prioritising a move for Barcelona’s
Ousmane Dembele.

Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are
also out of contract in 2023 alongside
Salah, but Liverpool is understood to be
planning extensions for the Brazilian and
Senegalese attackers.

When asked by reporters at a recent
press conference what his new deal
could mean for Salah and Mane’s stays
at Anfield, Klopp responded: “I think
that’s a question for the boys.

“My relationship with both players is
great. If it’s a positive sign for the boys
then great, but I don’t think this will be a
decisive factor. But the players who
want to be here now know what they
can expect.”

Salah has enjoyed a remarkable
campaign with Liverpool, who is still
fighting for success on four fronts this
season, and he was recently crowned
the Football Writers’ Association
Footballer of the Year for 2021-22.

A total of 45 appearances in all
tournaments have seen Salah register
30 goals and 14 assists, with 22 of
those goals and 13 of those assists
coming in Premier League action.
