Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool future may very well be a significant speaking level in 2024, and journalist Fabrizio Romano has dropped a key replace over one other participant, too.
Will Mohamed Salah keep at Liverpool?
The 31-year-old has spent six legendary years at Anfield, however his present deal expires in the summertime of 2025, and he has been strongly linked with a transfer to Saudi Arabia.
In actual fact, Liverpool turned down a £150m bid for Salah from Saudi Professional League aspect Al-Ittihad late within the switch window, with the Reds by no means entertaining the concept of promoting arguably their most prized asset.
Subsequent yr appears like there’s way more likelihood of the Egyptian transferring on, nevertheless, at which level he can have solely a yr left on his contract, and Liverpool will conscious that they may lose him on a free switch 12 months later. The hope is that he indicators an extension, after all, however that’s removed from a assure.
Away from Salah, one other participant’s future might additionally turn out to be an enormous speaking level within the coming months, and a key replace has emerged relating to what’s subsequent for him in his profession.
Will Thiago depart Liverpool in 2024?
Chatting with Caught Offside [via Empire of the Kop], Romano mentioned that Thiago is blissful at Liverpool in the intervening time, however will decide about his future subsequent summer time:
“Thiago Alcantara has attracted curiosity from a number of golf equipment this summer time however the state of affairs may be very easy: in the mean time there are not any negotiations ongoing over a brand new deal at Liverpool.
“Thiago needed to remain at Liverpool and made that very clear. The participant is now absolutely centered on this season after which in 2024, Thiago and the board will resolve collectively whether or not to signal a brand new contract because the participant can be a free agent subsequent summer time, however that’s not one thing being mentioned proper now.”
Thiago threatened to be such a particular signing when he arrived at Liverpool from Bayern Munich in 2020, however there was at all times the danger that accidents would show to be a difficulty. That is precisely what has occurred, with the Spaniard solely making 71 begins in three years, and a complete of 97 appearances.
Whereas the 32-year-old is clearly an exquisite footballer who can dictate matches when he’s match and firing – Jurgen Klopp has described him as a “sensational” participant – it’s reaching the stage the place it’s maybe not definitely worth the Reds having him round, such is his stage of unavailability.
Very similar to Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, having a participant who is consistently out isn’t any good to anyone, and contemplating he can be 33 years of age by the point subsequent summer time rolls round, it is smart Liverpool to let him depart without spending a dime when his contract runs out.
If Thiago can show his health within the coming months, Klopp could contemplate the choice of him extending his keep past 2024, however because it stands, it is smart to maneuver him on, getting him off the wage invoice and permitting the Reds to usher in a youthful, extra accessible possibility who can additional help the midfield rebuild.
