Jamie Carragher believes Mohamed Salah is pushing for a lucrative new deal at Liverpool. Last Saturday, Spanish publication AS shared their exclusive interview with Salah where he refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Egyptian revealed he was upset at not being handed the captain’s armband for Liverpool’s Champions League clash against Midtjylland.

Liverpool legend Carragher does not believe Real or Barcelona could afford to prise Salah away from Anfield and instead reckons the Egypt star was pushing for a new contract at Liverpool.

In Carragher’s Telegraph column on Friday, he wrote: “Salah’s recent interview feeds that idea his career comes first. His comments about being upset not to be made captain in a dead rubber against Midtjylland underlined it. They were odd.

“The timing of the player initiating transfer stories is also strange. My view is it was a message to Liverpool’s owners to offer him a lucrative new deal.

“Seeing their players being courted by the La Liga clubs would have concerned Liverpool five years ago. Not now. I am not convinced Madrid and Barca can afford Salah. Investing well in excess of £125million on a player who will turn 29 this summer is not good business.”

Salah’s current Liverpool contract runs until the summer of 2023.
