According to The Mirror, Real Madrid is keeping a close eye on Liverpool’s winger.
The 29-year-old is said to be wanting a new contract for £500,000 per week.
Amidst the developing situation, Madrid have shown an interest in the services of Salah, as per the report. It is no secret that the La Liga giants have had their eye on the Liverpool star for some time now, having been linked with a move for the 29-year-old in the past. And should he enter the final year of his contract next summer, they will have an incentive to push to sign the attacker from Liverpool.
Real Madrid have been looking for attacking reinforcements for some time, and they even failed to get Kylian Mbappe during the summer transfer window.
However, with the Frenchman in the final year of his contract at PSG, Los Blancos want to strike a pre-contract agreement with him before he becomes a free agent in the summer of 2022. contract issue.
In addition to Mbappe, Real Madrid wants to recruit Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund to form a ‘Galactico’ strikeforce. A move for the Norwegian, however, might be difficult considering the large number of teams interested in signing him.
This may lead the Spanish capital club to consider alternative possibilities, with Salah perhaps appearing as one of them.
As of yet, there has been no sign that Salah wishes to leave Liverpool. However, considering Liverpool’s compensation structure, salary demands may be an issue.
It remains to be seen whether this opens the door for Real Madrid to jump in and grab the 29-year-old, or whether the Reds and their star man can reach an agreement on a new contract before then.
Officials at the club are optimistic about striking an arrangement with the player shortly.
The winger is expected to play against Leeds United in Liverpool’s next Premier League encounter on September 12.
The team’s Champions League campaign will begin on September 15th, when they play AC Milan at Anfield.
