Liverpool’s in-form Salah plays down talk of MadridFebruary 8, 2018
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has played down reports linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid.
After holding talks in recent weeks with club president Florentino Perez regarding transfers, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane seems to have focused his intentions on one of the Premier League’s top performers, Salah.
Struggling to gain any real form in La Liga, it seems Madrid are lacking real fire power in front of goal this season and the Egyptian forward is high on Madrid’s list of potential summer arrivals.
Five time Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have failed to reach the highs of seasons previous in goals and Gareth Bale has spent most of this half of the season injured.
Liverpool ace Salah has 28 goals in all competitions and is now one of the hottest properties in European football at present.
Whilst reports are changing on a daily basis in English and Spanish press regarding proposed interest from the Santiago Bernabeu, Salah has issued a response.
“I have nothing to say on those links, but I can confirm I am happy at Liverpool,” Salah told an interview with Marca.
“Right now I am a Liverpool player, I want to focus on that and end the season well, I love the English league and the type of football played.
“I am scoring a lot of goals right now, which is good for helping the team to win trophies and boost our league position, while I am excited for the World Cup with my nation (Egypt).
“Those are my aims and thoughts for the minute, but for the future we will see.
“Spanish football? I watch some games, especially when it does not collide with a Liverpool game of course, but the matches are of top quality with attractive football.”
Having had a blistering season in Switzerland with Basel, Salah moved to Chelsea in 2014 but failed to impress during his time at Stamford Bridge.
The tricky winger would then move to Serie A with Roma, where he scored 35 goals in 81 games for the Italian side, before making a move to Anfield.
