Salah set to sign a two year extension taking him to 2025, he will be the highest paid player in club history.

Agree30 Disagree0

He definitely deserves it. He is a legend.

21 Aug 2021 16:54:59
Amazing considering every single summer transfer window I read on here that he's off to Real Madrid for sure.
Some folks never learn.

21 Aug 2021 17:18:16
hell only be 33 when that ends, easily he has another 3 seasons in him after that barring any bad injuries.

21 Aug 2021 17:42:00
Fantastic news. Bonafide legend.

21 Aug 2021 21:59:49
Deserves it! (. don’t agree any person on the planet does unless it’s a cure for cancer) but ye know what I mean unreal player didn’t score today but he will be rampant! His stats don’t lie end of! Oh as me pals once said he’s a lil Chelsea reject! Yuppp he sure is our mo!

Flash - ed told us that. Are you saying he's a liar? Also from my perspective, I think there have been some key changes to current superstars in world football that aligns with it making more sense Salah stay with us.

{Ed077's Note - what you've been told is that Salah and his team have been trying to get a move to RM or another "big" European team to be the "poster boy". I don't think any Ed's have actually said he is leaving LFC outright.

22 Aug 2021 03:45:10
Faith, Ed02 has refereed a few times at the back end of last season and the off season, that Salah is now past the high point of his sale value (and hence mega contract) . Whilst his agent will be talking him up when bargaining it has always been possible that he’d look to stay - although nothing has been signed as yet.

22 Aug 2021 03:43:51
77 - yes, and that is the premise that posters suggest that he is off every summer.

{Ed077's Note - ok

22 Aug 2021 08:15:04
Both Suarez and Coutinho left within six months of signing new contracts. Just a reminder. Of how things really work. Hold the champagne, lower the music volume.

22 Aug 2021 11:42:32
Suarez and Coutinho were a fair bit younger than Salah - he have missed the boat on the mega bucks deal - particularly with Barcelona who make us look extremely wealthy at the moment.

{Ed002's Note - Both could yet be available - a nice little surprise perhaps?}

22 Aug 2021 12:18:17
Can’t see Barcelona getting Salah of us anytime soon lol.

22 Aug 2021 12:31:03
Couts is incoming.

22 Aug 2021 13:19:54
West Derby - good points and I think that too is a factor in Salah staying longer.

22 Aug 2021 13:00:41
Thanks but no thanks Ed. Suarez and Coutinho can stay as far away from us as possible. I’d rather keep Salah here.

{Ed0666's Note - if Couts was too come it would be a season long loan I’m sure we would finagle a way for Barca to pay half his wages and I don’t hate the idea. He’d play his little heart out to get a permanent deal. I know I’d be in the minority for a Couts comeback but you can’t please all the people all of the time

22 Aug 2021 14:00:11
I'd take Coutinho on loan for a year in a heartbeat, absolute win-win situation. No downside, we would have 5 absolute top class attacking options, and the kids.

22 Aug 2021 14:18:13
Why on earth would we want Coutinho back on loan or otherwise? He lied about injury and downed tools to get his dream move because he thought the grass was greener on the otherside. Now he wants back now we're challenging? I'd only take him back if Barcelona paid his wages and we spent zero money whatsoever. Hopefully the prospect of him re-joining is just the eds on a wind up.

22 Aug 2021 14:56:45
Because if your broke and the chance came to take a player of Coutinho's calibre on loan you don't cut your nose off to spite your face. He could be on his way after a year but in the meantime we'd get a top player, a player who can make a difference for mimimum outlay.

22 Aug 2021 15:25:10
Do we actually hold any interest in Coutinho though ed?

{Ed002's Note - Klopp thinks Pipco is a little sweetie.}

22 Aug 2021 16:16:01
Faith - you ask if I'm calling the eds liars. Not sure why you take that approach, why on earth would I do something like that? I've got nothing but respect for all the eds and wouldn't dream of even suggesting something like that.
As Ed077 has already answered, none of the eds said Salah was leaving. So maybe you're getting the hump with me because of your own poor interpretation of what the eds say?

22 Aug 2021 17:00:56
I know he downed tools for us, but it was his dream move and things haven’t worked out. Grass isn’t always greener that’s for sure, and I’m sure he has realised, and we came out of it a lot better off. I wouldn’t be opposed to having him back because of the way he left, if he was truly in it for us. However, he hasn’t shown any form for ages, is injured a lot… for me that’s a bigger reason as to why not.

{Ed077's Note - he has failed miserably at Barcelona, surely you aren't serious about wanting/taking Coutinho back

22 Aug 2021 18:00:18
Coutinho was failing at Inter Milan (and loaned out to Espanyol) before Liverpool pulled him out of future obscurity by buying him and giving him a shot. With all credit due to him he progressed from a player who couldn't play beyond a half, to one who was called world-class. He then took his next shot by knifing the club in the back and pursuing his dreams with Barcelona. That's fine too, I guess. But it has turned out to be a bridge too far. And I think his skills have eroded, his confidence must be shot (even if he is the third most expensive player ever, transfer fee wise) .

I don't see how he would fit in with what the club is trying to build; the next group to keep the club at the highest level. Even on loan he wouldn't come cheap (forget a purchase) and it would mess with the heads of Mane, Jota, Jones and Elliott. I can't imagine the club now with a forward or attacking mid who doesn't track back, who isn't fast and isn't mentally tough. But above all I do not think he is good enough anymore. That's basically it.

22 Aug 2021 17:30:55
Madness to bring him back he’d just stop the progression of the like of Elliot.

23 Aug 2021 08:37:58
Ed666 I'm really disappointed in you, nah only joking, every man has his kriptonite that makes him weak at the knees, but for me Coutinho is not that lol. I would be happy for him to collect his millions elsewhere.

{Ed0666's Note - I just don’t see why all the hate for him mate. I don’t think playing Couts off the bench or in the FA cup, dead rubbers in champions league, caraboa cup etc would be a problem? I know he wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I loved him and wouldn’t mind seeing him back for a season. Under klopp he’d work hard this time round.

23 Aug 2021 09:00:07
Aside from any considerations regarding his previous behaviour in his last months I just think we'd be better off saving the money and keep regularly playing with what we've got . When Coutinho left we didn't miss him really, and now he'd almost certainly block other players developments .
