Mo Salah and Real Madrid

Speculation around Mo Salah’s future has been intensifying this season.

The Egyptian winger has given two interviews to the Spanish press during the campaign which have fuelled rumours of a switch to La Liga.

When asked recently by Marca whether he’d move to Spain he responded, ‘why not?’

In December the forward told AS that Barcelona and Real Madrid are two great clubs and he doesn’t know what the future may hold.

Liverpool to offer Mo Salah new contract

The Reds are set to lose Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer this summer.

The club won’t want to be caught out in the same manner again.

According to The Times, Liverpool will offer Mo Salah a new contract soon.

The Reds are reportedly working on new deals for the Egyptian along with Fabinho, Alisson and Virgil van Dijk.

Advantage Liverpool

Should Liverpool give Mo Salah a new deal then they will surely have the upper hand if Real Madrid come knocking for the winger.

His current deal runs until 2023 but an extension would only serve to strengthen the Reds’ position in any negotiations with the Spanish giants.

Liverpool will squeeze any potential buyer for every penny, a new deal could be key to that.
