The Egyptian stunned supporters last month when he admitted he was open to the idea of a continuing his career in Spain with one of LaLiga’s biggest clubs.

Asked where his future lies by Norwegian channel TV2, Salah said: ‘I do not know.
‘If you ask, I say I want to stay here as long as I can, but as I have said before, it is in the hands of the club.
‘I will always give 100 per cent to the last minute I am in this club and I want to win as many trophies as I can.
‘And I want to give 100 per cent to the people, who show me love all the time.’
Salah’s latest comments come just a month after he sent shockwaves around Anfield after giving an interview to Spanish publication AS.

Asked about a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona, the 28-year-old said: ‘I think Madrid and Barcelona are two top clubs.
‘Who knows what will happen in the future, but right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again.’
When pressed on his future, Salah insisted everything was in Liverpool’s hands, adding: ‘That’s a tough question, but right now I can say that everything is in the hands of the club.
‘Of course I want to break records here and, I repeat, all the club records, but everything is in the hands of the club.’

At the time, Klopp insisted he was not concerned about losing Salah and claimed there was no reason for him to go in search of a fresh challenge.
‘We could all look for something else if we want,’ Klopp said.
‘But I think the only reason to leave Liverpool at the moment is the weather. What other reason could be there?
‘This is one of the biggest clubs in the world, we pay good money. Maybe not the most in the world, but we pay good and we have a sensational stadium with outstanding supporters and we have a fan base all around the world.’
