Mohamed Salah’s agent speaks out on reports Liverpool star wants transfer exit amid PSG links
MOHAMED SALAH’S agent has spoken out on sensational reports that the Liverpool star wants to leave.
The Reds were this week dumped out of the Champions League with a 6-2 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid.A report in France had claimed that Mo Salah was considering his Liverpool future[/caption]
They are also out of the FA Cup, which they won last season, and failed to retain the League Cup.
And now they face a fight for a top four finish with their dismal campaign leaving them seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
Boss Jurgen Klopp is set for a major rebuild of his ageing squad this summer and, despite becoming Liverpool’s highest-ever paid player when recently penning a new long-term deal, rumours have mounted that Salah could be set to depart.
With Liverpool set for a transitional summer, there have been plenty of rumours suggesting Salah could be offloaded. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have both been touted as potential suitors.
French publication Foot Mercato claims that the Egyptian forward, 30, is “increasingly considering” a move away.
Both Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have been linked while this sensational report says that an unnamed Spanish club is his preferred move.
However, after the story was shared by worried Liverpool fans on Twitter, Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa quickly moved to squash the speculation.
He tweeted: “Where did you get this from if not even Mohamed and I discussed this? Please tell us.”

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of ransacking the footballer’s luxury Egyptian villa on March 2.
Salah’s silver Africa Cup of Nations medal has been recovered alongside a multitude of other items stolen.
The luxury home is worth £350,000 per week, according to Egyptian daily newspaper Al-Ahram.
One of the alleged thieves worked as a security guard in Salah’s residential complex, according to the Egyptian Interior Ministry.
