Real Madrid are to make Mo Salah their top transfer target of 2020, according to reports originating from Spain today.
The Spanish giants will make the Liverpool ace their primary target as they feel potential moves for Kylian Mbappé and Harry Kane could prove too complicated.
Club president Florentino Pérez wants to deliver a new galáctico to boss Zinedine Zidane and is willing to break the bank to do so. It is claimed that Pérez will authorise a bid of up to around €210million to make it happen.
Liverpool, of course, will insist that the player is not for sale and there’s no way in the world that Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp would be happy if club owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) entertained offers.
The Reds are expected to spend big themselves next summer and internally there have been discussions in relation to possibly losing someone like Salah or Sadio Mane. The club has developed a bit of a reputation of selling big before investing big but if that was to happen next year after spending nothing this time around while banking £50million+, there’d be hell on.
So what are the Reds planning? Are today’s reports credible? Could Salah jump ship? Let’s take a look at what we do know and what club insiders are reporting.
