Jurgen Klopp has vehemently denied claims Mohamed Salah is unhappy and itching to leave Liverpool and says the forward has been ‘laughing a lot’ in training ahead of the side’s clash with West Brom.

Speaking to Spanish publication AS last week, Salah refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona – despite being tied into a deal on Merseyside until 2023 – and the 28-year-old was named among the substitutes as Liverpool thumped Crystal Palace.

But Salah scored Liverpool’s sixth and seventh goals after coming off the bench at Selhurst Park and Klopp played down talk of his star forward leaving after the final whistle.

However, Salah’s future continues to be the subject of intense speculation ahead of the January transfer window and the Liverpool head coach was once again pressed on the Egyptian’s current situation at his Christmas Eve press conference.

Asked whether it was time to discuss a new contract offer for Salah, Klopp replied: ‘We never speak, why should we start now? Not with you!

‘Mo is in a good mood, he’s in a good moment.

‘He’s in really good shape so that’s the most important thing for me.

‘Today there were no cameras involved in training but you would have seen him laughing a lot, he enjoyed the session.

‘So that’s good as well and all the rest is, for sure, nice for all of you to write about but internally it’s nothing really.’

Jamie Carragher played down the significance of Salah’s recent comments and claimed the decline of Real Madrid and Barcelona made them less of a ‘problem’ when it comes to poaching the Premier League’s top players.

‘I don’t think it’s really a debate as much now as it was a few years ago,’ the ex-Liverpool and England told Sky Sports.

‘I think even when Manchester United were top dogs and Cristiano Ronaldo went to Real Madrid it still felt like a step up in some ways because Real Madrid were Real Madrid. But I really do feel the two Spanish giants have fallen so far.

‘Salah has two-and-a-half years to go. I’m not really looking at it as too much of a problem.

‘Real Madrid spent a lot of money on Eden Hazard when he was at that age. Salah is getting to that age now.

‘I just think that when you’re wanting to spend that kind of money you want them to be 25, 26 to get that real value for them.

‘If he did go – I don’t see it – then it would be massive money for Liverpool, but I just think the time now has sort of gone.’
