Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah says he will be at Anfield next season "for sure" but would not be drawn over whether he will sign a new contract.

Salah's deal ends in June 2023, leading to speculation he could be sold if did not sign a new one as Liverpool would lose him for nothing in a year's time.

When asked about his future before Saturday's Champions League final, he said: "I don't want to talk about that.

"I just want to see Hendo [Jordan Henderson] with the trophy."

The Egypt striker, 29, added: "I am staying next season for sure."

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in 2017 and has since scored 156 goals in 253 games.

He has helped the club win the Premier League in 2019-20, the Champions League in 2019, the FA Cup and League Cup this season plus the Fifa Club World Cup and Uefa Super Cup in his time at Anfield.

In March manager Jurgen Klopp said it was up to Salah whether he signed a new contract.

The former Chelsea forward previously said he wants to stay but that his future is in Liverpool's hands and he is not asking for "crazy stuff".

On Sunday Liverpool were beaten to the English league title by a point by Manchester City, ending their hopes of an unprecedented quadruple.

Saturday's match against Real Madrid in Paris will be a repeat of the 2018 Champions League final, which the Spanish side won 3-1 with Salah going off injured in the first half after an incident with Sergio Ramos.

"I'm very motivated, motivated through the roof, after what happened last time [the 2018 final] and Sunday, everyone is motivated for this," Salah said.

"We fight for this and everyone is excited."
