Report: Xavi desperate to sign Mo Salah with contract yet to signed

According to El Nacional, via Sports Mole, new Barcelona manager Xavi is desperate to sign Mohamed Salah and with his Liverpool future still yet to be decided, it’s a worrying story.

No disrespect to Barcelona but they simply don’t have the same pull as they used to and with the club buried in debt, it’s difficult to see how they emerge from this mess anytime soon.

That said, appointing Xavi with a commitment to giving him time is a good step in the right direction and the midfield legend reportedly wants to take Salah to Camp Nou.

His contract situation leaves Liverpool vulnerable and every week that goes by without Salah’s demands being met is another opportunity for the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid to steal in and tempt him into moving to La Liga.

Sports Mole cites El Nacional, who reports that Salah has been identified as an option for Barcelona ahead of next summer as Xavi wants a high profile forward.

Lionel Messi left the club this summer and the only player close to him in terms of style and ability is Salah.

It goes without saying that Liverpool must do everything they can to hold onto Salah but FSG are taking their time over his contract extension and until we get news that he’s signed a new deal, there is a chance for Salah to be lured away.

With 15 goals and 6 assists this season, the Egyptian is in the form of his life and is well aware of how good he is, his value to Liverpool and how badly other clubs want him.

If the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid believe they can sign him, I don’t imagine Liverpool will stand any chance of keeping him.
