Mohamed Salah’s agent debunks reports that Liverpool star met European club president in Morocco

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa has dismissed claims that the Egyptian recently met with Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Earlier this week, Sports Zone reported that Salah and Al-Khelaifi had recently met in Morocco. The pair have reportedly been in contact often since the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, leading to speculation that a move could eventually ensue.

However, Salah’s agent has downplayed those reports by replying to a tweet from GetFootballNewsFrance:
“No, he did not. That’s the short story.”

The Liverpool forward only signed a new contract with the Reds last July. He has been the protagonist for Jurgen Klopp’s side since arriving at Anfield in 2017.The 31-year-old registered 30 goals and 16 assists in 51 games across competitions in the just concluded 2022-23 season.

However, he couldn’t help the Anfield giants finish in the top-four and return to the UEFA Champions League. Salah reacted disappointingly on Twitter when Klopp’s men finished fifth to drop to the Europa League. Apologising to fans, he said:

“I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this. We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League, and we failed.”

PSG will be playing in the Champions League next season after winning the Ligue 1 title. However, they may be without star duo Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. Messi is leaving the Parc des Princes at the expiration of his contract in June.

The Argentine icon is joining MLS side Inter Miami. Meanwhile, Mbappe’s future with the Parisians is still uncertain after he sent a letter confirming his intentions to leave the club in 2024. He has reportedly been placed on the transfer list.

Hence, many have concluded that Salah’s meeting with Al-Khelaifi was in view of the Liverpool attacker coming in as a replacement for the Frenchman. However, his agent has called the conclusion a hoax.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy reckons the Reds have no chance of signing PSG striker Mbappe. The Frenchman is creeping towards the Parc des Princes exit door following his letter to the club.

Murphy thinks it’s more realistic that the 24-year-old heads to their arch-rivals Manchester United this summer instead, telling talkSPORT:

“He won’t go to Liverpool. United’s a more realistic one, but I don’t think he’d go there. I don’t think he wants to go to England. He would help them; of course, his talent is undoubted; he’s just an amazing footballer.”

Mbappe has been one of Europe’s in-form frontmen this season, scoring 41 goals in 43 games across competitions. Reports claim that the forward held talks with Klopp before he had joined PSG in 2017.
