Liverpool have been chasing the Egyptian star all summer but Roma have stood firm and refused to let him move on until the Reds have matched their valuation.
Reports over the weekend suggested that the two clubs had settled on a £35million that would see Salah complete a move to Anfield sometime this week.
Some photos posted on twitter also added fuel to the fire, but Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa has now poured cold water on it all by suggesting it fake news.
Issa too to twitter to clear up the rumours: “It’s amazing what one fan picture, along with a stab-in-the-dark caption, will lead many to believe.” #fakenews
