Mohamed Salah’s agent has fanned the fire surrounding the Liverpool superstar’s contract saga with a cryptic message on social media.
The Egyptian, whose current deal with the Reds expires at the end of next season, is yet to sign a new contract at Anfield.
He has been in superb form this season, with many saying he is currently the best player in the world, having scored 19 goals and provided ten assists in the Premier League.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reassured fans that “all is well” when asked about the situation at his press conference on Friday, adding that he was “in no rush ” for him to put pen to paper.
“We can’t do much more, that’s how it is,” he said.
“I don’t think it’s about that. It’s Mo’s decision. The club can only do what the club can do. It’s like that.
“I have nothing negative to say about it, everything is fine from my point of view. It’s exactly how it should be right now.
” Everything is in order. Nothing more happened, so no signing, no rejection, or anything.

But Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa posted a timely tweet after Klopp’s comments.
A series of laughing emojis were all that was tweeted from Issa’s account, without any context, leaving many guessing what they were referring to.
Reds fans won’t be thrilled if the tweet was aimed at Klopp after his update on Salah’s contract negotiations, with many desperate for the 29-year-old to secure his long-term future at the club.
