Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano delivers latest on Mohamed Salah's contract at Liverpool

Fabrizio Romano has said that Liverpool attacker Mo Salah wants to remain with the Reds and that the club wants to keep him, with his new contract just a matter of getting negotiations right.

Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with Anfield Watch, the Sky journalist revealed that both sides of the negotiating table want to get a deal done, and it's just a matter of the two parties meeting over the financial aspect of the deal.

Read on to see in full what Fabrizio had to say on the Egyptian's situation...

"The situation is clear. They are negotiating right now, the feeling around both parties is the same because Mo Salah has said in public he would be happy to stay in Liverpool," Romano told Anfield Watch.

"He is happy with Liverpool life, with the club, with Jurgen Klopp and with his teammates, so he is prepared to stay at Liverpool. Liverpool want to keep Mo Salah too as he is a key player.

"We are talking about the key contract for Mo Salah as it's maybe going to be his last top contract in European football and so we can understand that he wants a super contract, the biggest contract in all his life.

"So I think it's something that has to be respected and it's an economical negotiation right now. Timing will be super important because Liverpool know that getting to the end of May or the beginning of June without it sorted could spell danger.

"PSG, before signing Leo Messi last summer, were thinking of Mo Salah as a potential player for them. We know that many times he said about Spanish football. So of course we're talking about the top player and many top clubs will be prepared to jump into it if he's not extending this contract at Liverpool.

"So the only thing to do is to wait to see if Liverpool will be able to pay what Salah wants. But I am confident, to be honest, because when two sides are both on the same page, they want to stay together.

"I think they will be able to find a way but now it's a negotiation and so we just need to wait and see if they will be able to do it."
