Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah, is ready to let his contract with the Reds run down, before signing for a Premier League rival on a free transfer.
The Egyptian superstar has a year left on his deal at Anfield and talks over an extension have been at a standstill.
Salah wants to double his weekly wages to around £400,000-a-week and believes that his performances warrant such an increase.
However, Liverpool fear breaking their wage structure will lead to bigger problems down the line and they are willing to let Sadio Mane leave this summer, despite their preference to keeping the Senegal forward.
Salah remains open to staying at Liverpool but unless he receives a significant increase in offer, then he will leave the club on a free transfer in 2023.
The Athletic report that, in the scenario Salah leaves next summer, his preference is to remain in England and he’s open to joining a Premier League rival.
