According to Paul Joyce of the Times, there is no release clause in Salah’s new deal:
“I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season,” said manager Jurgen Klopp, per the club’s official website. “It demonstrates two things very clearly also—his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.”
The Egypt international enjoyed a breathtaking first season at Anfield, scoring 44 goals in 52 appearances and helping the team to the UEFA Champions League final.
