Dominic King has claimed that contract talks between Liverpool and Mo Salah are ‘proving problematic’, with the renowned journalist referencing speculation suggesting that the Egyptian would be prepared to move to another Premier League club, if necessary.
It’s most likely a scare tactic being put forward by the No.11’s entourage, with the player unlikely to be willing to ruin his relationship with the Reds’ fanbase in a potential move to a direct rival.
With space in the wage bill set to be freed up with Sadio Mane’s likely departure to Bayern Munich, of course, one might imagine that such an exit might help facilitate an agreement should we wish to offer an improved deal.

Mo must go now, a free transfer would be the worst business we had ever done. Things change we must move on YNWA
