Liverpool is relaxed about Mohamed Salah’s contract negotiations according to head coach Jurgen Klopp.
Salah has only 18 months left on his contract at Anfield and negotiations over a new deal are still ongoing with Klopp insisting ‘what they want is clear.’ In a recent interview with Egyptian TV channel MBC Masr, he made it clear he did not want to leave the Premier League but said it was up to the club to resolve his situation.
Klopp said last week there had been no update on talks and Barcelona head coach Xavi has reportedly expressed his interest in the forward.
“We are talking. Extending a contract with a player like Mo is not a thing you do over a cup of tea in the afternoon and find an agreement,” said Klopp.
“This is completely normal. There’s really nothing else to say. Mo speaks about it when he gets asked about it. I can say only a few things because the rest is not for the public.”
Salah is expected to lead Liverpool’s attack on Tuesday when they take on AC Milan in the final game of Champions League group stages.
