The former Chelsea player would like to play with the Spaniards and wants to end his career with a new challenge. Liverpool have been in disappointing form this season; they are eighth in the Premier League and suffered a humiliating 5-2 defeat by Real Madrid at Anfield on 21 February. Barça are also interested in the player, but only as a ‘Plan B’ option. Xavi still wants to sign Lionel Messi in the summer and will do everything possible to bring the Argentine back to the Camp Nou. However, they are planning alternatives and will move to Salah if the deal fails for Messi. Mohamed Salah has been asked to turn down Barcelona and stay at Liverpool

Mohamed Salah had the option of a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona as his contract with Liverpool expired at the end of the 2022-23 season. However, the Egyptian was persuaded to stay at Anfield and signed a new contract last summer.
Darren Bent was one of those who pushed the Liverpool star to stay, as he told TalkSPORT:

“Do you know what else she has on his side? There aren’t many places he can go. You look at Barcelona or Real Madrid; None of them are in a financial situation. I know they come up with something crazy for Kylian Mbappe but it looks like who they want to have. They are being renovated.”

He added:

“Not now they aren’t, Liverpool are huge. Where would you rather go now? Now when you’re talking about the biggest clubs in the world when it comes to who could go on and win the Champions League, Liverpool comes to mind.”, Chelsea, City, PSG, Bayern. If Barca or Real came for me now and I was at Liverpool, I would stay where I am.”

Salah signed a long-term deal with Liverpool and the club eventually sold Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.
