Liverpool ace Mohammed Salah has confirmed he wants to stay at Liverpool, going to the lengths of declaring he wants to stay with the Reds “until my last day of football”.
There has been mild speculation on Salah’s future, especially after it emerged he was in contract talks with the Merseyside outfit.
While his current deal expires at the end of the 2022-23 season, Salah is keen on a new deal worth a staggering £500k-a-week.

"If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can't say much about that - it's not in my hands. It depends on what the club want, not on me.
"At the moment I can't see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It's hard, I don't want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad.
The former Chelsea star has had an outstanding season so far, scoring 12 goals in 11 games in all competitions.
He is the current top scorer in the Premier League after his latest superb showing against Watford on Saturday, October 16.
And only recently, he became the fastest Liverpool player to clock 100 goals for the club.
His performances in recent weeks will certainly merit a massive new contract, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently endorsed his talents by claiming the Egyptian was the best player in the world.
Why Liverpool fans attacked Mo Salah
The 28-year-old forward confidently converted the opportunity and restore parity for the hosts in the 63rd minute after Ilkay Gundogan had given City the lead earlier in the second half.
Although the Egyptian's goal was not enough to rescue the Reds from their third straight defeat after Gundogan grabbed another goal while Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling also scored.
