Former England player Noel Whelan believes that Egyptian star Mohamed Salah is worried about the levels of his Liverpool team, and does not rule out moving away from Anfield next summer if a suitable offer arrives.
Salah signed a contract with Liverpool last July to keep him until the summer of 2025, and that signature made him the highest-paid player in the red team.
After a volatile start to the season, Salah was able to return to the fore again after the historic “hat-trick” he scored against Rangers in the Champions League, and on Saturday he scored his 11th goal during the current season against Leeds in the match that Liverpool lost 2-1.
Whelan told Football Insider: “Certainly, the declining level presented by Liverpool worries Salah. Getting the league championship this season is almost impossible, and this may apply to other championships.
He continued: I do not rule out that Salah will start thinking again about his future. It is true that the contract he signed in July is profitable from a financial point of view, but in the end, when the current season reaches its conclusion, he will have only two years, and this period does not mean a long commitment between the two parties.
Whelan followed the former Middlesbrough and Coventry City player: Salah is a legend and whatever happens, his place in the club’s history is preserved, and he is one of the greatest players to have worn the shirt of all time, but today he will look at his teammates and the level of the team and be concerned, How will this situation continue?
He concluded: Salah can easily think: I can do better than this, I want a better challenge to get titles, and if a suitable offer comes for a player of his level, he will certainly think of leaving.
