Real Madrid are ready to submit an offer for Mohamed Salah, according to Canal+, but Los Blancos don’t stand a chance of signing the Egyptian.
The forward joined Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017 for a bargain fee of £36million and he has been unbelievably clinical for the Reds ever since.
Salah has been involved in 92 goals in 98 appearances since he signed for Liverpool and is easily one of the most important players to the way Jurgen Klopp has his side playing.
Even if Klopp was open to selling Salah, it would take a huge fee to get the Reds to part with him and given that Luka Jovic, Eder Militao and potentially Eden Hazard are on their way to the Bernabeu, it’s unlikely that they could afford to splurge on the Egyptian.
Salah would likely cost more than the £142million that Barcelona had to pay to sign Philippe Coutinho in January last year.
Under Klopp, Liverpool have made the crucial transition from being a selling club to a side that keeps its best players year after year.
This switch means that the German is able to continuously build on the previous year’s success and ensure that the Reds remain a force to be reckoned with in both Europe and England.
For Real Madrid, this means they will need to go another summer without being able to pinch Salah from Liverpool.
After winning his second successive Premier League Golden Boot, Salah has shown that he is not a one-season wonder and even though he didn’t quite score 44 goals as he did last year, he is still the best forward in the league.
All things considered, Salah ended the Premier League campaign with the second most direct goal involvements (30), with Eden Hazard (31) the only one to get more.
