Mohamed Salah would like to spend the rest of his career at Liverpool, but says his future “depends on the club”.
The club have agreed a raft of new deals with senior players this year but Salah, who has under two years left on his contract, is one whose longer-term future is yet to be tied down.
Negotiations have not affected the 29-year-old’s performances, with Salah scoring 12 goals in 11 club appearances this season, helping propel Liverpool to second in the Premier League ahead of this weekend’s Super Sunday clash with Manchester United.
Salah told Sky Sports: “If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands.
“It depends on what the club want, not on me.
“At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad.
“At the moment I don’t see myself playing against Liverpool but let’s see what will happen in the future.”
