Manchester City midfielder David Silva says his current contract, which runs until 2020, could be his last at the Premier League champions and has ruled out a future move to any rival club in England.
Salah needed only one minute to announce his return to the Liverpool team in the early hours of Thursday when equalising against Manchester City in the International Champions Cup game in New Jersey, which ended 2-1 to Liverpool.
Salah was introduced as a second-half substitute in Liverpool's International Champions Cup clash against City in the United States and the 26-year-old levelled the scores nearly immediately before forward Sadio Mane scored the victor.
However, the Reds managed to reach a first Champions League final in 11 seasons before a 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the European Cup showpiece in Kiev.
"We need players for the final but if they are not coming back we'll play with the guys who are here".

Although the first half passed without much fanfare, Leroy Sane gave City the lead to scare the living daylights out of Craig and the rest of the Liverpool faithful.
"I was not concerned about it (Salah's shoulder) otherwise he wouldn't have played. We can not only go for a 1-0 here, 1-0 there - I know if you win silverware in the end then people are probably happy, but the whole year was still rubbish".
Martin King explains how Liverpool must become more consistent in order to be genuine Premier League title contenders this season.
"It's so expensive and we spent a lot past year because we had an old squad". How can you be happy? "It is business. We pray before the game that there would be no injuries and that's what happened". That it was against Man City, we lost against Dortmund so what does that mean?
Diehard fans usually greet the major football clubs' pre-season tour of far-off countries with a distinct slice of cynicism, perceiving their run as pure money-makers for already wedged pockets, but often the matches conjure up moments of excellence for them to stand up and be counted.
