Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is now in the final year of his contract with Liverpool.

The 30-year-old has refused to sign a new deal with the Reds. However, he has also insisted that he won’t be leaving Liverpool this summer.

According to reports, Barcelona have promised Mohamed Salah a place in the club’s new-look team if he refrains from signing a contract extension with Liverpool.

According to the Mirror, Barcelona are in pole position to sign the prolific winger as they seek to sign the Liverpool star on a free transfer.

The report adds that Barcelona head coach Xavi would be keen on the winger, as he has begun to turn the fortunes of the Catalan giants around after his appointment midway through last season.
