Liverpool set Salah price with Real Madrid, Barcelona interested

Liverpool set Salah price with Real Madrid, Barcelona interested

It wasn't unusual to see people call him the sort of player who would fit well in a J├╝rgen Klopp side and suggest that, given his time at Roma, he might well top the 20-goal mark.

Mohamed Salah has been a revelation at Liverpool this season, but it turns out things could have been very different for the Egyptian forward.

German worldwide Emre Can is out of contract this summer and looks set to leave Liverpool on a free transfer, having so far refused any attempts to tie him down to a new deal at Anfield.

The Times report that Klopp wanted fellow countryman Julian Brandt in the summer window, but Liverpool couldn't strike a deal and they had to look elsewhere.

"It has been the best ever debut season for an attacker and it is just astronomical what he is doing", said former Red Phil Thompson's when he appeared on Sky.

Salah led Liverpool in the Premier League match on Saturday to defeat Watford 5-0, scoring four goals and providing an assist to Roberto Firmino.

The Reds have devised a shortlist of players to take Can's place in the squad.

Some of that is down to his previous experience in England preparing him for the opposition he would face. "Also La Liga is very attractive, as well as Serie A, which has grown in recent years, or Ligue 1, which has become one of the most important leagues in Europe". If he was to have a fantastic World Cup, gets a couple of goals and plays well, and then continues again next season, why not go for the Ballon d'Or? The Premier League has the power to spend more money on players than the Bundesliga.

However, there is a feeling that an individual in Salah's camp would encourage him to take an offer if it came from Madrid while highly-influential figures back in Egypt could also apply pressure to consider such an opportunity if it presented itself as they believe it would be a great boost for their country.

Despite Salah's heroics, Liverpool is now third with 63 points, just two points ahead of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur who have a game in hand with 61 points.
