Mohamed Salah has been the standout player in the Premier League this season and a former Tottenham star believes that he will leave for Real Madrid next summer.
The 25-year-old Egyptian star has been in incredible form this season, or rather ever since he departed Chelsea. But while Mohamed Salah did flourish at AS Roma scoring 34 goals and assists a further 24 in 83 games, there were questions asked when Liverpool shelled out 42 million to bring the former Chelsea flop back to the Premier League. But 30 goals and 10 assists in just the Premier league later, the world, Real Madrid and Liverpool fans praise Jurgen Klopp for his ingenuity and craftiness.
However, that kind of form leads to the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich and even Manchester City shortlisting the Egyptian international as their next target. However, with Real Madrid desperate to bring in new blood into the Santiago Bernabeu, the Los Blancos are reportedly desperate to make a move for the 25-year-old. The PFA player of the year nominee for the 2017/18 season (with many expecting him to win it), would be a brilliant replacement for the struggling Gareth Bale.
The Welshman, for whom Real Madrid broke the world record transfer fee, has struggled with his fair share of injury issues. But this season has been his worst with the 28-year-old missing 20 games this season and benched for, even more, thanks to his issues in front of goal. However, while many believe the 25-year-old Egyptian won’t leave Anfield next summer, a former Tottenham and Egypt star believe that he will.
In an interview, Mido who made nearly 100 appearances in the Premier League went to say “Real Madrid want him, and we have all seen the poor performances of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema with the 4-4-2,” he said. “I was afraid that Salah might fail at Liverpool, but I think he is ready to jump to the next level. ‘Real Madrid would be able to use his strengths.”
Bringing in Mohamed Salah for just €42 million will go down as one of Jurgen Klopp most shrewdest deals, especially given how prolific the 25-year-old has been. But while no one could have predicted this, Liverpool will have a tough time next season especially with the likes of Real Madrid and even Barcelona very interested in the Egyptian’s services.
