Jurgen Klopp answers question if Mohamed Salah is leaving in the summer

Jurgen Klopp has given verdict on Mohamed Salah long-term transfer link to Real Madrid and Barcelona as January transfer window closes

Salah is currently Liverpool leading goalscorer in the Premier League with 12 goals in 21 games so far.

The Egyptian has spent two-and-a-half seasons at Liverpool since completing a £37million move from Roma, managing 87 goals and 38 assists in 136 appearances across all competitions.

Speaking back in October, Liverpool legend John Aldridge warned Salah and his team-mate Sadio Mane - also linked with a move to Spain’s two heavyweight clubs - that there is no reason to depart.

But there have been suggestions that the 27-year-old will end his stay on Merseyside at the end of the current campaign, despite being under contract at Liverpool until 2023 as the club’s highest-paid player on £200,000-a-week.

Jurgen Klopp, when asked whether he thought Salah would still be at Liverpool next season, said: "I would think so, did you hear something different?

"How can you see the hunger to stay at Liverpool? It looks to me like he is really settled to be honest.

"I have no idea, actually, but you could ask me the same question for all the others and I have no idea. I didn't think about it until [the press] asked me.

"As long as I don't hear anything and I don't ask the players what they think of next season or in two years, for me, it looks like [he will stay].

"How long is his contract? Long? I would [think so] yes, but I have no idea."

Salah has won the Golden Boot in each of his past two seasons at Liverpool and broke the Premier  League record for most goals in a season when he bagged 32 two years ago.
