‘Mo is fine, I’m fine. What we all want is clear and things like this take time. That’s it.’

Jürgen Klopp has revealed that he remains relaxed about Mohamed Salah’s contract negotiations, insisting that “what we all want is clear”.

The Egyptian has 18 months left on his current deal and the forward is still in discussions with Liverpool over extending his stay at Anfield.

Salah recently spoke on Egyptian TV channel MBC Masr where he made it clear that he wants to remain on Merseyside, but that it was down to the club to resolve his situation.

“I said it several times, if the decision is up to me, I want to stay in Liverpool,” he said.

“But the decision is in the hands of the management and they have to solve this issue.

“There is no problem but we have to reach an agreement for the contract. It’s up to them.

“Your financial value shows how much the club appreciates you and that they are ready to do anything for you to stay, but the decision itself is not based on those financial matters only.

“There are things like the ambition of the team and the coach and what he wants to do with the team and the players he wants. These are all important points when making the decision.”
