Liverpool 'to offer Salah improved deal on £200k-a-week wages' as Aldridge questions why he'd want to join Real Madrid

LIVERPOOL will offer Mo Salah an improved deal in a bid to keep hold of him, according to reports.

The Egypt star, 28, has three years left on his £200,000-a-week contract at Anfield.

But there have been claims Salah is unhappy on Merseyside amid interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Now Goal report that the Premier League champions will offer him a new and improved contract.

SunSport revealed this week that the Reds have no plans to sell their star forward.

One of Salah’s closest pals, former Egypt team- mate Mohamed Aboutrika, insisted the superstar had told him he was 'upset' and 'angry' with the club.

Aboutrika also made the claim that 'Liverpool are considering selling Salah for economic purposes'.

But Salah, 28, posted a picture of himself with a beaming smile on Monday.

And SunSport understands manager Jurgen Klopp and the Kop hierarchy are completely happy with the free-scoring forward and have no thoughts of offloading him.

And, in a beIN Sport interview, ex-Al Ahly star Aboutrika declared: “I called Salah about his situation at Liverpool and he is upset, but that would never affect his performance on the field.

“I know Salah is not happy in Liverpool, he told me the reasons why he is not happy but they are secrets and I cannot talk about it in public.

“One of the reasons that made Salah angry was that he was not the captain against Midtjylland.”

In that Champions League game in Denmark earlier this month, Klopp handed the armband to Trent Alexander-Arnold instead of Salah.

Salah said: "Honestly, I was very disappointed. I was hoping to be the captain, but it's a coach's decision. I accept it."

In an interview with AS, Salah admitted: "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."

Liverpool legend John Aldridge told the Echo: “If you’re a player of Salah’s quality, you’re always going to be linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona and other such deals. That’s just the way it is.

“Sadio Mane is talked about too. We’re talking about one of the very best forwards in the world. Mane, Salah – they’re always going to be linked with Real Madrid.

“Personally, I think after the experience of the Champions League final and the way Ramos treated him, I’d have had a hatred for Real Madrid if it was me, after that incident. It wouldn’t appeal to me but I wouldn’t want to leave Liverpool anyway.

“It’s up to Jurgen Klopp and what he wants. You have to trust the manager to deal with such situations when they arise in the right way. Players are so strong now, if they want to go then they’ll go. End of story."
