Real Madrid could be lining up a bid for Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah before the European transfer window closes in two weeks time.
Mohamed Salah’s debut season at Anfield last year was nothing short of sensational as he managed to score 44 goals in all competitions for The Red’s in just 50 appearances. His 32 goal tally in the Premier League broke the record for goals scored in a regular 38 game season and his performances in Europe helped lead Jurgen Klopp’s side to the Champions League final.
Unfortunately, the man dubbed fondly as the ‘Egyptian King’ by supporters endured a miserable evening in the showpiece event in Kiev back in May, after being forced to come off midway through the first half following a serious shoulder injury. He could then only watch on from the dugout as Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners on the night, which meant Liverpool ultimately ended the season without a trophy.
Salah has already put that disappointment behind him and picked up from where he left off last year on the domestic front at the start of the latest Premier League season, scoring in The Red’s 4-0 win against West Ham United at the weekend.
However, he hit the headlines for the wrong reasons at the start of the week after being caught out for using a mobile phone at the wheel of a car, as The Daily Star reports.
According to Don Balon, this latest news has left Salah angered and bemused, which has alerted Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who could now be ready to pounce on the situation by launching an audacious bid for the 26-year-old star.
The Spanish giants would surely have to put in a mega bid to even get close to stealing Liverpool’s talisman away in the next two weeks before the transfer window shuts, given that he is in the prime of his career and being touted as a potential Balon Dor winner after his exploits last year.
