Mohamed Salah has been in incredible form this season, which has attracted the interest of Europe’s top clubs such as Real Madrid. However, the latest reports are suggesting that Liverpool currently have no interest in selling their star man, no matter how large any bids are that come in.
The Egypt international only arrived at Anfield last summer but has since been one of the best players in the Premier League. The player scored four goals in one game at the weekend, in a 5-0 success against Watford. This took his total to 28 goals in the league, which means he is the top scorer in Europe’s top five leagues.
As with any player, his fantastic form has led to plenty of speculation of a move away. The suggestion is that Real Madrid are the club that have shown the most interest in Salah, and he would fit perfectly into the style of play.
Club Record Bid?
Liverpool sold one of their top players in the January transfer window, as Philippe Coutinho left Anfield for Barcelona for a fee of around £142. In order to potentially lure Salah to the Santiago Bernabeu, it may take a club record bid.
However, UK publication the Telegraph has suggested that Liverpool will not consider selling their key man for any price. This is due to the fact that they are in a such a strong financial position after the sale of Coutinho and do not need to sell.
The Reds are expected to have a large transfer budget this summer and will be looking to add quality players to their squad, not sell them. What may change Liverpool’s mind is if the player himself demands a move, which he is showing no signs of doing at the moment.
At this point, Los Blancos may have to start looking at other potential targets.
