Egpyt FA president Abdo Rida claims that Real Madrid will approach Liverpool this summer to sign Mohamed Salah after his stunning form this season.
In just 31 games this season, former Roma winger Mo Salah has equaled Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge’s top-scoring seasons with Liverpool, scoring 24 goals. With five and half months of the current campaign to go, there will be plenty opportunities for him to go on and break more records.
This goalscoring form and the pace he offers in behind opposition defences have seen Salah linked with a move to Real Madrid.
According to Egypt FA president Abdo Rida, Salah will be the subject of a bid from Los Blancos in the summer as Zinedine Zidane looks to do something about the fact that his side is languishing in fourth, 19 points behind league leaders Barcelona.
Abdo Rida claimed: “Real Madrid will make an offer for Salah during the summer.
“Salah is now looking to improve his game. Obviously if an Egyptian plays for a club as popular around the world as Real Madrid, it’s going to be great for Egyptian football.”
Egypt national manager Hector Cuper also spoke about the possibility of a move for Salah to Real this summer, saying: “I’ve received news revealing Real’s interest but let’s not rush things.”
Liverpool fans will naturally be insecure about players leaving for big clubs in Spain even when they seem happy and are professing their contentedness with their lot on Merseyside. With Philippe Coutinho’s move to Barcelona, it makes it difficult to trust what players say but for now, I’m just going to enjoy all the goals that Salah is scoring.
Salah only joined Liverpool in June 2017 for a bargain fee of £37 million and with the Reds in the FA Cup and the Champions League knockouts there is still the opportunity for a trophy to be won.
If more silverware is added to the cabinet at Anfield, it will help Jurgen Klopp keep hold of his best players – a fact which is undeniable when looking into why Torrez, Suarez, Sterling and Coutinho left in recent years.
With Klopp clearly taking the club forward, it seems unlikely that players like Salah will be itching to leave months after signing on.
