The Egypt international has an admirer in new Barca boss Xavi but he would rather remain in the Premier League than head to Camp Nou.
Mohamed Salah says he is “happy” to hear that Barcelona want to sign him but insists he would rather stay at Liverpool.
Recent reports in Spain claim that new coach Xavi is determined to bring the 29-year-old to Camp Nou as his side look to strengthen their attack.
The Egypt international is in talks to sign a contract extension at Anfield, however, with his current deal set to expire in the summer of 2023.
What has been said?
Although he is flattered by the interest from the Catalan team, Salah is determined to commit his future to Liverpool.
“I read what was said about Xavi’s interest to sign me,” he said to Egyptian broadcaster MBC.
"This is something that makes me happy that a team like Barcelona is interested in me, but I’m happy in Liverpool and we will see what happens in the future.
“At the moment, I prefer to stay in the Premier League as it’s the strongest league in the world."
