Mo Salah ‘tells Barcelona he wants transfer in summer’ as Prem top scorer’s Liverpool contract stand off goes on
MO SALAH is open to moving to Barcelona with the Spanish giants eyeing a deal this summer, according to reports.
The Liverpool forward's future is uncertain with his current contract up in 2023.
Barcelona are trying to take advantage of that situation and view Salah as a cheaper alternative to another transfer target – Erling Haaland.
And the Blaugrana would be prepared to spend £58million to land the Egyptian, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
Liverpool would likely want more than that but with Salah's contract expiring in 2023 they may have to reduce their asking price.
The report outlines that the Reds could place an £83m valuation on Salah.
And Liverpool could even put Salah on the transfer list this summer if he fails to agree new terms by then.
There has been speculation surrounding Salah's new contract with the player determined to receive a salary that is fitting of his talents.
He spoke on the issue, saying: "I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands.
"They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff."
