Mo way! Liverpool ‘have no intention of selling Mohamed Salah to Bayern Munich’ after German giants claim it would be an ‘honour’ to sign the Egyptian forward
- Bayern Munich chief admitted Mohamed Salah could play for the world’s best
- The Liverpool forward has previously flirted with the idea of leaving Anfield
- Salah has only two years left on his current deal at the club from this summer
- Liverpool though are already looking at trying to extend his Merseyside stay
Liverpool have handed a hands off warning to Bayern Munich over star forward Mohamed Salah.
The German champions’ chief executive Karl Heinz Rummenigge this week admitted that Salah could play for any club in the world, hinting at a potential future move from his side to land the forward from Anfield.
But according to the Sun, Liverpool are already keen to block any planned transfer and that ‘they have no intention of letting go of their prized asset.’
Liverpool have effectively told Bayern Munich that star forward Mohamed Salah is not for sale
From this summer, Salah will have two years left to run on his contract at Anfield and Rummenigge appeared to set the wheels in motion for a swoop further down the line by comparing the Egyptian star with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
‘At the moment we don’t plan on signing Salah, but certainly it would be an honour to have him,’ Rummenigge told On Time Sports.
‘In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he has the skills to play for the best teams in the world.

‘What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.’
Salah has previously flirted with the idea of leaving the Reds with an eye on joining either Barcelona or Real Madrid after revealing he was open to a transfer to Spain.
Stunned by his revelation, the Reds have since reportedly put plans in place to offer the player, who was key to their Champions League title and Premier League success in the last two years, an improved deal on his current £200,000 weekly wage.
Jurgen Klopp recently claimed he had no concerns over Salah’s future at Anfield in light of his thoughts on leaving the club, stating that he was only responding to a question rather than trying to force a transfer.

‘It is a normal thing in the world of football,’ the Liverpool boss said.
‘Mo didn’t make a speech, it’s not that we go out and talk about things that we think are important. It’s pretty rare that happens.
‘We get asked questions and we answer – that is the end of the story. But it always sounds like we started the conversation.
‘In Mo’s case it is not like that. I don’t think it will distract this season.’
