However, fans awaiting news of star man Salah’s situation remained frustrated as it appears that talks about a new contract for the Egyptian king are no closer.

“We are still talking about Mo Salah and Liverpool are still in talks with him, let’s see when that is agreed and when everything is in place, but at the moment they are still in talks,” Romano said on his podcast.

“I wanted to add that the Liverpool board are also ready to meet Sadio Mane and his agents to discuss his new contract.

“This is an important update for Liverpool, as we are still talking about Salah out of contract in 2023, but also Sadio Mane out of contract in 2023.

“Liverpool are preparing the first approaches with Mane to enter this contract story.

“Let’s see if they are able to do it with Salah and also with Mane, but it is the plan for Liverpool to speak up and protect Mane as many clubs are keeping an eye on the situation.”

Mane has been in great shape for Liverpool this season, but Salah has been on another level.

Considering Salah’s electrical performances and the ever-growing importance of Klopp’s side, it would be a blow to the club if they couldn’t extend his contract.

It looks like the ball is in the club’s court, however, after Salah recently revealed he would like to stay at Anfield for the rest of his career.

“If you ask me, I would like to stay [at Liverpool] until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about it – it’s not in my hands, ”said the forward when asked about his future at Anfield.

“It depends on what the club wants, not on me.”
