Salah set for shock move?

English Premier League

With Real Madrid and FC Barcelona said to be lurking, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has now been linked with a surprise move to another major European side.

The 29-year-old has been widely linked with a move away from the Reds throughout the 2021/22 campaign as his contract is set to expire at the end of next season, and any extension is yet to be agreed.

Despite the speculation surrounding the forward's future, manager Jurgen Klopp has remained positive that the Egypt talisman and the club's decision-makers will reach an agreement to extend his stay at Anfield.

Early in April, a member of the Egyptian parliament hinted that the superstar will go against his advice about leaving the Reds and sign a new deal with the Merseyside club, but talks over a renewal are yet to yield any result.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Salah is now tempted by the idea of taking up a new challenge with Paris Saint-Germain in France, while Real and Barca remain possible destinations for the player too.

With Kylian Mbappe's future remaining uncertain, the reigning Ligue 1 champions would be keen to find a replacement in case he makes an exit from the Parc des Princes.

Rather than potentially find themselves in a situation where they could lose Salah as a free agent in the 13 months' time, Liverpool could be willing to part ways with him ahead of the 2022/23 season in order to cash in on the attacker while they still can if they fail to persuade him to prolong his stay on Merseyside.
