Liverpool could suffer 'huge' loss after reliable journalist update on Salah talks - pundit

Liverpool “cannot afford” to let Mohamed Salah get into the final two years of his contract, according to Paul Robinson.

The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said the 29-year-old “is the heartbeat” of the team and would leave a “huge” hole if he left the club.

Salah‘s current contract at Anfield runs until the summer of 2023.

According to The Mirror’s David Maddock (October 4th), talks over an extension are complicated and not yet close to a resolution.

talkSPORT host Adrian Durham suggested there’s a possibility of Salah moving to Man City if Liverpool cannot agree a deal.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the situation, Robinson said: “Liverpool need to get it sorted quickly.

“They have been wise with their contract renewals this year but the most important one is still to be done.

“You cannot afford to let a player like Salah get into the final 18 months of his contract.

“He is one of, if not the best player in the world right now on current form. They cannot afford to lose him.

“Salah is the heartbeat of that team at the moment. To lose him would be huge.”

Speaking on talkSPORT, Durham said: “If Man City come in and say we’ll give you £75m or even £100m for Salah right now, that’s a massive business decision that Liverpool have to make.

“I don’t think it’s delusional that that could happen.”
