Jamie Carragher has warned Mohamed Salah against moving away from Liverpool amid the uncertainty surrounding his future.

The Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer has 12 months remaining on his current deal at Anfield but whether he stays in Merseyside remains unclear as the Reds continue their efforts to tie the Egyptian down to a new deal. But one player who Carragher believes will surely extend is Sadio Mane.

He told the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast: “I’m convinced Sadio Mane will sign, I really believe Mo Salah should sign – I think it’ll be a really big mistake if he doesn’t.

“I’ll tell you why, Michael Owen went to Real Madrid, he wasn’t at a stage of his career where Mo’s at now or at his prime, Michael got about 20 goals and was a bit-part player. People over there had no time for him, he scored in El Clasico, all he did was score.

“Mo gets lots of assists but his game’s built on goals, being direct, runs in behind. Diaz you’re always confident he’ll keep the ball, you’re not with Salah or Mane because they’re so direct, they’re almost trying to run through brick walls and even when they’re dribbling you’re never quite sure.

“I don’t think he’s their type of silky, on the eye, slow the game, I think he suits the Premier League and the way we play, it’d be a big mistake for him to leave. If it’s a money issue, Liverpool will still offer…
