Mohamed Salah speaks out on Liverpool future amid Real Madrid rumours

Barcelona’s swoop for Coutinho has led to speculation that Real Madrid will push for his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah.


Spanish newspaper Sport reported this week that Real have made Salah their top target for the summer.

Salah is the reigning African Footballer of the Year and is set to star for Egypt at the upcoming World Cup.

The Premier League sensation has responded to the speculation and insists he is not concerned with such talk.

Quoted by Marca, Salah said: “I have heard so many rumours that it doesn’t bother me anymore. They have treated me very well in Liverpool and at this moment, I belong to Liverpool and I am happy at Anfield.”


Salah is the Premier League’s second highest goalscorer behind Harry Kane after a blistering start to the season.

The £36 million Liverpool paid to sign Salah in the summer from Roma is already looking like a bargain, but the Reds are unlikely to be willing to entertain any approach from Real Madrid, especially just months into his spell at Anfield.

Liverpool need to make a stand after letting Coutinho leave this January, and a major sale in the summer would ask major questions about the club’s direction, no matter how much money is on offer.
