"I love the fans there and they love me too", Salah told CNN in an interview ahead of the draw.
Salah tops the Premier League's scoring charts with 29, although he is being hunted down by Tottenham's Harry Kane - the victor of the Golden Boot in each of the last two seasons - who has 25.
"It's not a situation I would even think about", said the German on Friday.
Salah in particular could be left out after only completing one full training session on his return from a muscle injury before playing 89 minutes at the Etihad.
"If we now always start talking after a year and is it will he leave or whatever, then I don't think about".
"I think they've had a good season after a hard transfer window for them previous year, where they lost not only Mo [Salah] but Emerson [Palmieri] and a few key players for them". "I don't think about it. We have a chance to create something here for the future".
"Who we got in the draw mattered little: all the sides at this point are great", he said.
"It's stuff we have to deal with. They should have probably won four or five-nil - I was really impressed".

"He is very good, unbelievable", says Salah. I know he will be. "There's at least a little bit of hope".
The former Chelsea forward scored 34 goals during his two-year reign in Rome, impressing on loan from Chelsea before making a permanent £12 million move in 2016.
"They play number nine, I play as a winger more".
"All season I thought De Bruyne would win it".
"[Kane is] a fantastic player".
"I feel the love in the city, in the club and at training."In this case, it was not obvious.
