Real Madrid are prepared to break their transfer record and sign Liverpool’s in-form star Mohamed Salah in the next summer’s transfer window, reports Di Marzio.
News has been covered by the reputed Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, who thinks Real Madrid are ready to level with rival Barcelona, who recently captured Philippe Coutinho.
Barcelona are already leading Real Madrid by 16 points already. And having signed Coutinho for an insane transfer fee, they are now the favorites to win the La Liga title. The move has now forced Real Madrid to hold their hands out to sign new players in next few months.
Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez, has made Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah his two prime transfer targets for next summer. He is, however, more confident of signing Salah at the moment.
Mohamed Salah is slipping away from Liverpool
Despite starting brilliantly this season, Liverpool are still fourth in the league table and have very little chances of winning a major trophy this season. With Coutinho’s departure, Salah is already feeling concerned by Liverpool’s lack of ambition in coming seasons.
Furthermore, Egypt’s national team head coach Hector Cuper has also confirmed Salah’s rumours to Real Madrid. He claims that the attacker will be a brilliant signing for the Los Blancos.
Hector Cuper said,
“I’ve received confirmed news revealing Real Madrid’s interest in Salah, but we won’t accelerate these developments. For me, he finds himself in an incredible situation at the moment.”
Salah has managed 24 goals and 6 assists from 27 games this season and is on course to break all sorts of goal-scoring records for Premier League and Liverpool.
Although DI Marzio has not quoted the transfer amount for Salah’s reported move to The Bernabeu but having seen the recent trend, Real Madrid may need to cough up beyond £150 million if they are realistic about signing Salah next summer.
Liverpool get a taste of their own medicine
These are testing times for Liverpool as they face an uphill task of keeping hold of their star players during a time where trophies are hard to come by. Perhaps Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool will finally understand the pain Southampton have felt in recent seasons as ‘The Reds’ have constantly poached players away from St. Mary’s stadium.
