Real Madrid lining up summer move for Salah

Posted January 24, 2018

Real's president Florentino Perez is on a quest, looking for high-quality forwards, and he has identified Harry Kane and Salah as his top priorities for the summer transfer market.

Spanish powerhouses Real Madrid will soon submit an official proposal for Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, according to the chairman of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA).

This goalscoring form and the pace he offers in behind opposition defences have seen Salah linked with a move to Real Madrid. "Obviously if an Egyptian plays for a club as popular around the world as Real Madrid, it's going to be great for Egyptian football".

Hany Abo Rida, the Egptian FA's president, has now suggested that Madrid are ready to bid for Salah and that such a move would be "great" for the country's game.

Salah has scored 25 goals in 32 games on the season (for Liverpool and Egypt) as he has been on fire for Klopp's team.

National coach Hector Cuper claimed last month that it had been "confirmed" to him that the reigning European champions are interested in signing Salah.

Salah has always been a tremendous athlete with superb long speed and short-area quickness, but he became a far more intelligent player in Italy and now boasts a versatile skill set.

Liverpool fans will naturally be insecure about players leaving for big clubs in Spain even when they seem happy and are professing their contentedness with their lot on Merseyside. "I don't talk too much about other players, but he is a player I rate a lot".
