Egypt legend Ahmed Hossam Mido has insisted Mohamed Salah is 'most likely' to leave Liverpool this summer.

Salah's contract runs out in 2023, and has previously said he would want to stay on with the Reds, but insisted the decision lies with the club.

The Egyptian has previously been linked to Real Madrid and Barcelona, and former Ajax and Tottenham player, Mido, claimed that most clubs would like to sign Salah.

"I believe Salah will most likely leave Liverpool. He’s a great player and many clubs want his services," Mido told the media according to KingFut. "He can play at the top level for at least five more years."

Earlier this week, former Liverpool man Michael Owen said Salah's only two options would be either going to Manchester City or "down anywhere else".

"I'd be very surprised if Mo Salah didn't sign with Liverpool. What are the options at the moment?" Owen told BBC Sport.

"You are only going either sideways to Manchester City or down anywhere else because there is no-one else as good as these two teams in the world at the moment.

"Let's give everyone time because these things don't happen overnight. You are talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world and one of the biggest players in the world and that player is about to sign the biggest contract of his life.

"I think it's entirely normal that negotiations can drag on a little bit."

Salah has scored 153 goals in 239 appearances, and has helped the club win the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup during his time at Anfield.
