Mohamed Salah transfer: Spanish giants eye Egyptian
FootyOn look at the future of Liverpool’s star, amid Salah transfer rumours swirling as the forward lights up the Premier League.
Though the former Chelsea man’s first spell in England failed to see him flourish, Salah now sits top of the Premier League’s scoring table with his typical tireless efforts reaping rich rewards.
Despite arriving at Anfield this summer, rumours are already emerging linking the Egyptian with a Spanish switch.
Only last week both Barcelona and Real Madrid were said to be monitoring the diminutive attacker’s performances.
Now, fuel has been added to the fire thanks to an insider within the player’s circle pointing towards a Salah transfer.
Salah proving to be Real deal
Becoming the first PL player to reach 10 goals this campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s red hot winger is reportedly receiving admiring glances from Spain – and it appears Salah may reciprocate.
Former Zamalek owner and Salah insider Mamdouh Abbas claims the player’s agent has confirmed the former Roma man plans to use his time at Liverpool as a springboard to move to La Liga.
Salah reportedly invited Abbas to Anfield on Saturday to watch his performance against Chelsea.
Reds likely to hold firm
Premier League clubs now possess the sort of riches many major teams across Europe can only dream of, with Huddersfield Town and Brighton and Hove Albion among the top 10 net spending clubs this summer.
Seen with Liverpool’s firm stance on Barca’s pursuit of Philippe Coutinho, the Reds are unlikely to be bullied into a quick sale of their prize asset.

A contract spanning until 2022 ties Salah to Anfield, but player power is still a terrifically strong factor when it comes to transfers – though Virgil van Dijk would attest otherwise.
Real Madrid and Catalan club Barca are the only La Liga clubs capable of prising Salah away from Merseyside, not just financially, but in terms of prestige and worldwide draw.
Luis Suarez is struggling to reach the level he has over his last few campaigns with Ernesto Valverde’s men, so could the division’s title favourites look to replace the Uruguayan?
