Mohamed Salah has once again left the door open for a potential move to Spain and opened up on his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.
The forward sparked speculation around his Liverpool future when he refused to rule out a move to La Liga title contenders Real Madrid or Barcelona back in December.
Salah, 28, has become a star at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp since joining from AS Roma in 2017, scoring 119 goals in 192 appearances on his way to claiming the Champions League and Premier League titles.

Asked if he could see himself at another club after four years on Merseyside, Salah told Marca:
“It is not up to me. We’ll see what happens but I prefer not to talk about this now.
Pressed specifically about moving to Spain, Salah was less coy and admitted that he was open to a move to La Liga.
“I hope I can play soccer for many, many years. Why not? said Salah.
“Nobody knows what will happen in the future, so … Maybe one day.”

Mo Salah has refused to be drawn on whether he will represent his country this summer but did admit whatever he does will be in agreement with his club.
Asked about his relationship with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, Salah added: “It’s a normal relationship between two professionals. That’s how I’d describe it.”
Liverpool are currently seventh in the table, a huge 25 points behind leaders Manchester City heading into the final few months of the season.
