Mohamed Salah signs new long-term Liverpool contract, reacts to new deal

Mohamed Salah has finally extended his contract with Liverpool, putting an end to speculation over his future.

The Egyptian winger has penned a three-year contract for the Anfield club.

With only 12 months remaining on his existing deal, the Egyptian King has finally put an end to mounting speculation about his future by putting pen to paper on a fresh deal that will see him continue to lead Liverpool’s forward line.

His new terms, in excess of £350,000 a week, makes him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

The deal still fits into the club’s sustainable wage structure and is incentivised with scoring bonuses.

“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone,” Salah said.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”
