Liverpool legend, John Barnes, isn’t expecting Mohamed Salah to leave by the end of the season and said the club can’t afford losing him or any other players.

Salah has been recently linked with a move away from Anfield, despite his contract lasting until 2023.

It was believed that his upcoming destination would be Spain, especially following his interview with Spanish news outlet AS, two months ago.

Now that the club are going through a rough patch, rumors regarding the Egyptian’s departure have increased despite him being in top form for the past weeks.


Liverpool currently sit sixth on the Premier League table and might still drop positions if Everton and Aston Villa win their games in hand.

Despite that, Barnes still believes that Salah will remain at Anfield regardless of the club’s position in the Premier League.

“No matter where a team finishes in the league, it will never stop a player’s head from turning against them. In the last year, despite Liverpool being Premier League champions, there has been talk of Mohamed Salah leaving the club,” Barnes told

“I believe the players currently at Liverpool are players that want to be playing for Liverpool, but if they don’t, winning the league or finishing in the top four, it won’t make them stay – that’s just the nature of modern football.

“There’s talk of Kylian Mbappe leaving PSG, players leaving Real Madrid and players leaving other top teams; Kevin de Bruyne hasn’t signed his contract extension with Manchester City yet, despite the likelihood of him winning the Premier League with them.

“So, finishing in the top four won’t make Salah want to stay and if they don’t finish in the top four, it won’t make him want to leave.”

“Liverpool wouldn’t want to lose any of their players in the transfer window, they are all important. Mohamed Salah has been excellent this season, but Sadio Mane has been fantastic also.

“He (Salah) has been scoring plenty of goals, but Mane has been equally as good in terms of his hard work, both defensively and in creating chances going forward. There isn’t a single player Liverpool can afford to lose.


“They don’t want to lose any of their best players, but I wouldn’t say that Mohamed Salah is the one player they can’t afford to lose,” he concluded.

Mohamed Salah has been in top form, scoring with alarming regularity as he has 24 goals in 34 games for the Reds across all competitions.

He is also leading the Premier League top scoring charts with 17 goals, three ahead of second-placed Bruno Fernandes.
