According to Canal+’s Philippe Carayon (via the Sun), Real Madrid are eager to secure the services of Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah during the summer transfer window. The Sun claims that Carayon made an appearance on a TV Show and made a huge revelation when he said (via AS), “There have been some initial contacts between Real Madrid and Mohamed Salah.”

This recent development will worry a lot of Liverpool fans as Salah has been in the form of his life at Anfield over the past couple of seasons since arriving from AS Roma in the summer of 2017. The Egyptian winger has won back to back golden boots in the Premier League and will have a chance to etch his name in the Anfield history books if he can help his team win their 6th European Cup by beating Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid on June 1st.

Salah’s Incredible Spell At Merseyside

The 26-year-old has enjoyed another prolific campaign thus far after putting in some mesmerising displays for the Reds during this season. Salah has registered 26 goals while creating 13 assists in 51 matches for Liverpool this term across all competitions.

He is also vastly experienced at the international level, having secured 62 caps and 39 goals for Egypt so far. The Basyoun born talent also managed to help his nation qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where they were eventually knocked out in the group stages of the competition.

What Does The Egyptian Prospect Add To Klopp’s Side?

Salah boasts blistering pace and is one of the best dribblers with the ball down the wide areas. He has great positional awareness and knows how to find the back of the net consistently for his side. The Egyptian sensation can also create chances for his teammates in the final third, which makes him a complete package in the opposition half.

Why The Reds Cannot Let Salah Leave

The Egyptian’s potential departure could leave Jurgen Klopp with a huge hole to fill in his squad. Salah has been at the heart of everything positive that the Reds have done over the past couple of years. He is also an integral member of Klopp’s senior team so the Merseyside giants cannot afford to let him leave at any costs.

Now that Liverpool are qualifying for the UEFA Champions League every season while also challenging for major silverware, it seems like Klopp should have enough pull to keep Salah happy at Anfield for the immediate future. However, things change quickly in football, so if a big-money offer comes in from the Galacticos, then anything can happen.
