Barcelona chief Laporta hints Salah would fancy La Liga switch in cryptic message: ‘Top players want to join Barca’

Joan Laporta was decidedly cryptic when addressing reports linking Barcelona with Liverpool’s Mo Salah.

The comments come courtesy of RAC1, as relayed in a tweet by Fabrizio Romano, in a time where both attackers are attracting the wandering eyes of Europe’s elite.

With the Egyptian international’s current terms set to expire in the summer of 2023, that’s certainly more than understandable.

We’ll be facing a rather challenging scenario come the end of the campaign if talks have still yet to progress since the latter end of 2021: capitalise on our No.11’s remaining value or hold on and get another season out of the world’s leading star.

Salah has enjoyed an exceptional campaign with Liverpool, registering 38 goal contributions in 36 games.

Our feeling is that the latter will be a far more palatable option for Jurgen Klopp and the club’s executives should the worst come to pass, though it’s certainly no comfort to fans desperate to see the wide man put pen to paper.

Ultimately, of course, the bounds of our wage structure must be respected to a certain degree lest we wish to follow the dangerous spiral to financial collapse that took hold of Barcelona during the height of the pandemic.
