Liverpool prepare for Salah exit after next season as Man Utd says Ronaldo not available for transfer

Mohamed Salah is expected to leave Liverpool in 2023, according to a report by the Mirror.

The 30-year-old winger will enter the final year of his contract on Thursday, but despite the club’s efforts in recent weeks to secure a new deal with Salah, the latest indicates that the Reds are now preparing themselves for his exit.

As reported in May by ESPN, Salah confirmed that he would definitely stay at Liverpool next season, though that would now see him become available on a pre-contract agreement in January if his representatives cannot change their expectations in any contract talks before then.

The Egypt international contributed to 36 goals in 36 Premier League games last season, and recent speculation has suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s side have placed a £60 million price tag for his transfer, should any clubs look to test the waters during the current window.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have told Cristiano Ronaldo he is not available for transfer this summer despite Portugal forward’s representatives assessing interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, sources have told ESPN.

Ronaldo has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, but sources close to United insist they “want and expect” the 37-year-old to remain at the club next season.

He has a year left on his contract at Old Trafford with the option of another season. Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions last season but could not prevent United from missing out on qualification for the Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League.

Sources have told ESPN that Ronaldo is keen to spend the remaining years of his career playing in the Champions League and has doubts about United’s ambitions after failing to make a signing so far this summer.

However, new manager Erik ten Hag, who is set to lead his first day of preseason training at Carrington on Monday, is banking on having Ronaldo in his squad next season.
