Club physio Ruben Pons has estimated Salah would normally need "three to four weeks" to recover from the left shoulder injury he sustained during Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Salah, 25, met the national team doctor and Egyptian FA president Hany Abu Rida in Spain on Wednesday.
