After holding talks this week regarding January transfers, Zinadine Zidane seems to have focussed his intentions on Mohammed Salah.
Struggling to gain any real form in la Liga, it seems Real Madrid are lacking real fire power in front of goal this season. 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 Mohammed Salah is top goal scorer in the premier league with 13 goals and 3 assists, hot on the lips of many in European football.
Having a blistering season in Switzerland with Basel, Mohammed Salah moved to Chelsea in 2014. Failing to impress in his time there, Mohammed Salah made a name for himself in Seria A. In his three seasons he made 81 appearances, scoring 35 goals before his big money move to Liverpool this summer.
Mohammed Salah would definitely be a huge signing for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane, with the pace, goals and work ethic he brings to any team. But how likely is this move ?
Well, Egypt national coach Hector Cuper has been quoted this week saying “I have received confirmed news that Real Madrid are interested in signing Salah”.
Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp May not be to impressed by these courting tactics, but if this offer comes to light in January it will be very difficult to turn down.
