Liverpool could reportedly have a real chance at signing Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Junior as a replacement for Mohamed Salah.

According to Sport, the Brazilian international could become an option for the Reds if the winger fails to sign a new contract with the Spanish giants.

Vinicius is regarded by many as the best young winger on the planet and a player who will become Madrid’s new poster boy alongside summer signing Jude Bellingham.

However, Liverpool could now make a move for Vinicius if Salah is to leave in January for a world-record transfer, though whether Madrid will want to sell is another question entirely.

Vinicius has been something of a demon for Liverpool in recent years after scoring the winner in the 2022 UEFA Champions League final as well as starring for Madrid last year in their round of 16 clash.

Indeed, Vinicius is on course to become a modern-day legend for Madrid. And whilst Liverpool might have the funds to sign the winger, actually luring the Brazilian to Anfield will be another battle entirely.

Vinicius, on paper, is a dream replacement for Salah at Liverpool. Yet given the attacker’s importance for Madrid, the odds of the winger actually leaving likely sit at zero.

Whilst the funds could be there for Liverpool to meet any sort of demand Madrid might make, whether or not the Brazilian actually wants to go remains uncertain, though a departure remains unlikely.

In a dream world, Vinicius is signed as Salah’s heir at Anfield, yet with the winger a hero at Madrid, swapping Spain for England is likely far from the attacker’s plans.
