Mohamed Salah has signed a new five-year deal with Liverpool, and fans have lauded the Egyptian King for pledging his commitment to Merseyside.
The future of the Reds’ attacking talisman came into question with Real Madrid rumoured to be interested in a move, but Salah has now quashed speculation.
Putting pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at Anfield until at least 2023, the 26-year-old has ensured he will remain one of the key cogs of Jurgen Klopp‘s side for the long term.
Coming on the day Liverpool began pre-season ahead of their third full campaign under the German, this serves as a major statement of intent from both player and club.
And after his blistering 44-goal debut season, supporters could not be happier with the news.
There was overwhelming positivity on Monday morning…
Salah signing a new 5 year deal with no release clause is bigger than any signing the club could make this summer. Absolutely incredible news. #LFC

Honestly the best news I could’ve woken up to. Love you @MoSalah

The Salah news is brilliant, it's worth noting the role of Jurgen Klopp. We've seen some of our best players leave over recent years, Jurgen has the power to not only attract some of the best players, but to retain the ones we have.
Bobby is staying, now Salah.

“That’s some good news. Especially the non existent buy-out clause.
“How much would he cost?”
“Two trillion dollars.”
“But that‘s more than Spains GDP! D’oh!”
– RaoulDuke on the forums.
Mo Salah signing a new 5 year contract, with no release clause is absolutely brilliant news.
Keeping hold of our key performers is integral to this project taking the next step.

And focus quickly turned to Mane’s future…
Firnino and Salah both rewarded for their fine form with new, clause-free contracts. Mane next, surely? #LFC
