Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, who is heading into the final year of his contract, says he will be staying with the club next season regardless of how future talks over his deal progress.
Salah, joint top scorer in the Premier League with 23 goals this season, would be available on a free transfer at the end of next season if he does not sign a contract extension.
At a news conference before Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris, the Egyptian said it was not the right moment to deal with contract negotiations.
“In my mind, I don’t focus on the contract. I don’t want to be selfish at all. I said two months ago it’s about the team,” he said. “I’m staying next season for sure.”
