Liverpool Star Mohamed Salah Would Reportedly Cost Real Madrid 'At Least' £80M

Liverpool would reportedly demand "at least £80 million" if they were to consider selling emerging superstar Mohamed Salah, who is described as a "key figure" in Real Madrid's remodelling plans. Transfermarketweb reported the fee at which the Reds may start to weigh up a sale, although the Egypt international's departure looks unlikely (h/t Marc Williams of the Daily Star). A winter move for the player is almost certainly out of the question after Liverpool recently sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in a deal that could rise to £142 million. The Guardian's Sid Lowe laid out the payment plan making up Coutinho's sale, with £106 million of that fee arriving up front. But while his departure was a major loss, Fox Sports presenter Daniel Garb hailed Salah's rise as a softener: Real's interest in Salah appears to be genuine after several sources recently appeared to corroborate the notion Los Blancos are tracking his progress at Anfield. Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said Real will target Salah as their next Galactico recruit (h/t Manuel Salinero of Spanish daily AS). The Reds already stand to make huge profit on the man they signed from AS Roma this past summer for £37 million. It's almost impossible to believe Salah would follow Coutinho out of the Anfield exit door in the winter transfer window, and Real boss Zinedine Zidane effectively confirmed the 25-year-old wouldn't be joining Real before this season is over. When asked recently whether he would be signing new players in January, he replied, per Salinero: "We don't need anyone. I don't want anyone." Salah has netted 23 times in 29 appearances for the Reds this season, and statistician Simon Gleave recently nodded to the Egyptian's Premier League ratio as that of a player taking his chances and then some: It's no surprise talk of a move for the winger is intensifying just as Real poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be on a downward slope at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Despite struggling during an 18-month spell at Chelsea earlier in his career, Salah has gone from strength to strength under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, and he was recently named 2017 African Footballer of the Year, per ESPN FC: Liverpool look to have unearthed their next unique talent, but as Coutinho's recent sale showed, money tends to talk in football. Having lost another of their headline stars to Barcelona, with Coutinho following Luis Suarez's path to the Camp Nou, it seems Real will be the next Spanish giant to tempt a Reds talisman.Read more World Football news on
