Jose Enrique says Mohamed Salah will leave Liverpool at the end of the season

The future of Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah has been the subject of intense speculation, with growing interest from Saudi Arabian clubs reportedly tempting the Egyptian away from Anfield. Amidst rumours of a potential exit, former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has weighed in on the situation, suggesting that Salah may be inclined to leave this summer given the right offer.

Salah, who has been a cornerstone of Liverpool’s success in recent years, has just one year remaining on his current contract. With the clock ticking on the Reds’ ability to secure a substantial transfer fee for the 31-year-old, the club finds itself at a crossroads regarding Salah’s future.

Enrique believes that the departure of Jurgen Klopp, who announced his decision to step down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season, presents an opportune moment for Salah to seek a new challenge.

Liverpool should keep Mohamed Salah at any cost.

Speaking to Grosvenor Sport via The Mirror, Enrique expressed his belief that a significant offer from Saudi Arabia could pave the way for Salah’s departure.

“If the right offer comes then I think Salah will leave because I think he was actually trying to leave last summer. They were offered something like £200 million for him last summer and that was a real offer!”

“When you get an offer like that, usually it means there is already an agreement between the player and the club. I think Salah had already agreed to go and I believe that he will finally go to Saudi Arabia this summer.”

“Jurgen Klopp is leaving so it is the perfect time for Salah to go. There is a new cycle happening at Liverpool and lots of changes, so it is perfect for him. This will likely be the final big contract of his career, so I think he’ll leave for Saudi Arabia.”

What next for Mo Salah?

The prospect of Salah departing Anfield would undoubtedly leave a significant void in Liverpool’s attack. Salah has consistently delivered exceptional performances, certainly establishing himself as one of the world’s best.

However, the allure of a lucrative contract and the opportunity for a new challenge may prove too tempting for Salah to resist. With Liverpool undergoing a period of transition, the departure of key figures like Klopp could surely influence players’ decisions regarding their futures at the club.

While Liverpool would undoubtedly prefer to retain Salah’s services, the financial implications of allowing him to enter the final year of his contract without securing a new deal could force the club’s hand. The challenge for Liverpool will be balancing their desire to keep hold of Salah with the need to plan for the future and potentially cash in on Mo.
