Report: Bayern Munich place Mohamed Salah on their transfer radar

Bayern Munich have been mooted as a potential destination for Mohamed Salah after club chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said it would be an ‘honour’ for the reigning champions of Europe to land the Liverpool forward.

Salah, 28, continues to set records alight for Liverpool following his move from AS Roma in 2017. In 184 appearances for the club, the Egypt international has a whopping 115 goals, as well as 45 assists.

He is currently on course, too, to claim his third Premier League Golden Boot, with Salah leading the way in terms of goals this term with a respectable total of 15.

Bayern have Salah on their radar

The Liverpool No.11 currently has two years remaining on his current Anfield contract, while he has also been linked to the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

And now Bayern appear to be plotting a future swoop for the former Chelsea man.

The club’s CEO, Rummenigge revealed that Salah is certainly on the club’s radar, having compared the Liverpool talisman to modern day greats such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

At the moment we don’t plan on signing Salah, but certainly, it would be an honour to have him,’ Rummenigge told On Time Sports

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

‘In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he has the skills to play for the best teams in the world.

‘What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.’

What RTK has to say

The prospect of Liverpool selling Salah this summer very-much still remains an elusive case.

For one, the clock is ticking in terms of the club securing optimum value for a player who has previously been valued at surpassing £100m, per The Mirror.

He is arguably Liverpool’s most valuable player, too, in regards to Michael Edwards commanding a high-price for the Egyptian superstar.

Roberto Firmino isn’t the player he once was, while the idea of selling Sadio Mane is unthinkable. With that said, speaking from a financial perspective, Salah is the most likely player of Klopp’s pedigreed front-three to be sold.

Indeed, we and Klopp would prefer for Liverpool to keep Salah, but if the Reds do have ambitions of commanding an eye-watering fee for the forward, time is certainly running out.
