But he might also be considering his future at Anfield. Salah will enter the final year of his contract in the summer and is yet to agree an extension.
Liverpool are desperate to tie down their star player to fresh terms but are unlikely to hand an astronomical deal to someone who will be 30 next season. Salah is widely reported to want around £400,000 per week.
But in an interview a fortnight ago, Salah insisted that it would be ‘selfish’ of him to talk about his future while Liverpool are competing for an unprecedented quadruple of titles. Their win over United elevated them above Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola’s side can leapfrog the Reds if they beat Brighton on Wednesday.
Salah helped his side win the EFL Cup in February and they can still win the FA Cup and Champions League.
