“I’m Very Positive!” Jurgen Klopp addresses Mo Salah’s new contract situation.

Jurgen Klopp has voiced out his opinion regarding the contract for Mohamed Salah, with the Liverpool manager “very positive” about the situation.

Rumours continue over Salah’s long-term future at Anfield, with the star forward yet to agree on an extension to his deal, which expires in 2023.

Both the player and his manager has stressed their desire to prolong their relationship, but with the No. 11 seeking wages of anywhere between £300,000 and £400,000 a week, it is a long process.

When asked about the situation in his pre-Arsenal press conference, the manager said he is “very positive” and that there have been “good conversations.”

“We know, I know, Mo wants to stay, we want Mo to stay. That’s the point where we are,” he told reporters.

“These things take time, I cannot change that, sorry. But I think it’s all in a good place, nothing else to say.

“I’m very positive about it, but I don’t think it makes sense you speak on behalf of the fans because I’m pretty sure the fans are not as nervous as you are.

“They know the club pretty long and know the people here have been dealing with things for pretty long, so I think there are enough reasons to be positive.

“But as long as it’s not done, I cannot say anything about it. But [there are] good conversations. That’s all I can say.”

Jurgen Klopp was pressed further on the contract situation with a follow-up question, asked about the rumours and why an agreement has not been reached yet given all parties want the same resolution.

“Things take time. There are so many things you have to do in these negotiations,” he replied.

“And there is, by the way, a third party. The agent is there as well.

“There’s nothing to worry about, it’s a normal process. Mo has a contract here, this season, and the next season, and just because we make up stories here we’ve always got to talk about it.

“There’s nothing to say, nobody has to worry, it’s just the situation we are in. It’s all fine. It’s not done, but we are in talks.

“He’s a world-class player, unbelievable player, great boy, did a lot of great stuff for Liverpool and of course, we want to keep him. Now let’s see if it will work out, that’s all.”
