According to Canal+, as cited by TalkSport, Real Madrid are mulling a move for Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah this summer. The Galacticos endured a devastating season in the domestic competitions as well as the Champions League and are eyeing reinforcements to fill the void of their former talisman Cristiano Ronaldo who left last summer.

Real Madrid’s Attacking Woes

The likes of Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz and Isco have failed to step up to the responsibility of filling the massive void the Portuguese superstar left for them this season. Karim Benzema was the only saving grace for the former European champions.

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly unhappy with the performance of the Welsh superstar Gareth Bale this season, who has been able to score only eight goals in the La Liga. He is expected to let the former Tottenham Hotspur star leave in the summer transfer window and might look to bring in the Egyptian sharpshooter to end the attacking woes that haunted them throughout the season.

Where Can Salah Fit In?

On the other hand, Salah finished the season as the top goalscorer in the Premier League with 22 goals despite having a tough time in the initial part of the 2018/19 campaign. His darting runs combined with the immense accuracy on his shots makes him one of the prime threats for Liverpool’s oppositions. There cannot be any doubt that the Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane would love to have him as a part of his front three in the next term.

Apart from the fact that Bale has not been able to justify his massive price tag at Santiago Bernabeu, his struggle to retain his fitness throughout the season has also raised questions regarding his future at the club. The 29-year-old has been too prone to injuries, which has seen him miss out on several crucial matches and has affected his overall performance this season.

Conclusion

After going through this disastrous season, the Galacticos look determined to bring in players who are considered talismans for their respective sides in the 2018/19 season.

Reportedly, Los Blancos have already signed Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt and are also on the verge of bringing Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu once the Europa League final is over. The potential addition of Salah would not only strengthen their attack, but it will also help them have enough match-winners at their disposal as they look forward to having a better season in the domestic as well as European circuits.
