If there’s one thing that Jurgen Klopp appears to insist upon at Liverpool, it’s dressing room harmony, so the news that one major star isn’t showing too much willingness to renew his contract will be a concern.
Respected journalist, Kevin Palmer, has noted that key figures, which as of this moment are unnamed, believe that Mohammed Salah may have to be sold in the current transfer window if there’s a continued reluctance on his part to stall on signing an extension to his contract.
At present, the Egyptian King is contracted to the Reds until June 2023, and it’s clear that the club don’t want to allow him to wind down his contract for another year.

By getting him to commit now, it rules out the possibility of Salah leaving anytime soon, though his insouciance won’t do him any favours.
Particularly as this isn’t the first time that there have been perceived issues.
