The Egyptian star still has two years left on his contract with the Reds, but he has been urged to leave the club this summer
Former Super Eagles captain Austin Jay-Jay Okocha has advised Mohamed Salah to dumb Liverpool for Barcelona this summer.
Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017 and has gone on to achieve legendary status at the club. The 28-year-old broke the record for the most goals scored in a Premier League 38-game season in his first year at the club with 32 goals.
He also helped Liverpool reached the Champions League finals that season- although he was taken off after just 15 minutes due to a shoulder injury as Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.
The former Chelsea forward has been vital to Liverpool’s recent success with 118 goals and 45 assists in 187 games for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
He was a key player in the Liverpool squad that won the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League last season.
Although Liverpool’s title defence has not gone according to plan, Salah has been one of the team’s best performers this season with 17 goals and three assists in 24 games.
And with the Reds season at an all-time low, Okocha believes it’s time Salah seeks a new adventure by moving to Barcelona.
“If there is a chance to join Barcelona, I advise Salah to go there. His energy has run out with Liverpool,” Okocha told ONTime Sports, as per Kingfut.
“The situation is now regressing in Liverpool, and Salah must leave the Premier League. If there is any chance to join Barcelona, I advise him to go there.”
Nonetheless, despite Okocha’s advice, it’s unlikely Salah leaves Liverpool for Barcelona this summer as the Spanish clubs are currently cash strapped.
