The Premier League’s top scorer has only 16 months left on his contract and talks look to have hit an impasse in recent months.
Equally, there have been suggestions the Egyptian forward is close to extending his stay at Anfield for a number of years but, for as long as nothing is signed, the worry that a player to have propelled Liverpool back to the top of English football could leave will only increase.
In 241 games for the club since moving from AS Roma in 2017, Salah has scored 153 goals and remains one of the game’s leading marksmen.
But ahead of Sunday’s clash with rivals Manchester City which could go a long way to deciding this season’s champions, Salah sought to play down the potential distraction.
Salah told Sky Sports News: “There are many things that people don’t know about it – I can’t be selfish and talk about my situation (because) we are in the most important situation that is coming for the team.
“I’ve said many times what I want but I can’t really go deep into the contract now because it is a sensitive situation.
“I can’t go in the news and talk about the contract now, I am just focused on the team. That is the most important thing for me, (being) focused to win trophies and I’m just giving everything for the club.”
