Liverpool transfer news: Club warned that Mohamed Salah could leave for Real Madrid

By FourFourTwo Staff

Liverpool have been warned that Mohamed Salah could leave the club if he receives a better offer from elsewhere.

The Egypt international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona throughout this season, and the player himself admitted that he would consider a new challenge.

Salah is under contract until 2023 and Liverpool have hitherto been frustrated in their attempts to tie him down to a longer deal.

The forward will turn 29 this summer and is thought to be keeping his options open for now.

Hamdi Nooh worked with Salah during his time at El-Mokawloon, and the coach believes his former player will consider any offers that come his way.

“Yes, he may think about leaving Liverpool if a better offer comes in, but that’s just my own opinion. He’s unique and his family means everything to him,” he said.

Madrid and Barcelona have been spoken of as potential destinations for some time now, while Bayern Munich are also said to be keeping tabs on the situation.

And Mooh thinks the La Liga giants could have an edge in the race for Salah’s signature, should the former Roma man decide to leave Anfield.

“I can’t guess at that

[where he might go]

,” he added. “I enjoy watching Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich but my heart is always wherever Salah is. 

“In any case, I’ll be very happy if he goes to a Spanish club. Spanish football is my favourite.”

It is unclear whether either club has the funds to sign a player of Salah’s calibre amid the coronavirus pandemic, but Mooh believes Salah would thrive alongside talented players such as Lionel Messi or Eden Hazard.

“Absolutely! Hazard is one of the best players in the world along with Messi,” Nooh said. 

“If Salah joined Madrid or Barcelona he would bring a lot to either team because he will be playing with players who were born to be on the ball.”

Meanwhile, Salah scored his first goal of his career against Real Madridon Tuesday night.

The Liverpool talisman had not scored in his career against Los Blancos but finally broke his duck on Tuesday night.

Although it took him four games, Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah has finally broken through against Real Madrid.

The Egypt international scored his first career goal against Los Blancos in a crucial moment, finding the net in the 51st minute although Jurgen Klopp’s men bowed 3-1 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.

Salah played against Real Madrid twice during his time at AS Roma, however, he failed to find the net on those occasions.

His third attempt was during the 2018 Champions League final in Kyiv where he was replaced in the 30th minute by Adam Lallana – after he was fouled by Sergio Ramos.

That effort means Salah has now scored in four successive matches in the competition for the first time.
