However, Salah is yet to sign a new deal with Liverpool. The 29-year-old's contract expires at the conclusion of the 2022-23 campaign.
Pires believes that if the 29-year-old does want to leave Anfield, he should look to sign for either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
The 48-year-old told King Fut the following: “The current world’s best in my eyes is PSG’s Kylian Mbappe but two Premier League stars come right after; Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
“Mohamed Salah’s future depends on what he wants, whether he continues with Liverpool or goes for a new experience. It’s up to him.”
Pires added: “Between Barcelona and Real Madrid, and considering the player’s qualities, I think Salah would perform better with Barca.
“His communication with Xavi would be easy.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
Salah is a world-class footballer. The winger has scored 148 goals and registered 56 assists in 229 appearances for Liverpool's first-team.
Salah has also been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.80 during the 2021-22 club campaign.
Therefore, we do hope that the Egyptian international does sign a new deal with Liverpool sooner rather than later.
The Reds can't afford to lose Salah anytime soon. The winger would almost be impossible to replace.
