James on selling Salah

Mon 23 November 2020 | 11:59

Former Reds keeper believes letting go of a player would not be a difficult decision considering the offer they receive for the striker.

According to, ex-


goalkeeper, David James, the Reds are open to negotiations on their Egyptian star

Mohamed Salah

if the price is high enough. The 28-year-old who has scored 104 goals in 165 appearances for Liverpool so far has been honored to win both UCL and Premier League titles with his team.

Still the player continues to be linked to LaLiga giants

Real Madrid

and based on James were the price high enough the player would definitely move to another destination.

“If the price is right, any player is going to be sold,” former-Liverpool keeper told

Stadium Astro

. “It depends what that price is.”

“It’s a difficult argument because you have got a player who consistently scores goals, and that’s what every team wants.”

“If you look at

Man City


Sergio Aguero

, it is like the dependency is on one player.”

“If Salah went to Man City, I don’t think that would be good business for Liverpool. If he went to a different league and a different country, it would make more sense.”

“I don’t think Liverpool are dependent on Salah and that’s a good thing for Jurgen Klopp. However, he would still need replacing.”

“Who do you replace him with? [Diogo] Jota, Mane and Firmino aren’t going to play in every game, [Divock] Origi has been left by the wayside and isn’t going to fit that gap for Salah.”

“I don’t think he’s indispensable.”

James believes the team has proved their strength without Salah and therefore his presence is not a necessity for the squad to win games.

“I’ve said this before and it’s not that Mo Salah isn’t a great player, it’s just that Liverpool seem to look better without him on the field because there is more fluidity,” James said.

“When players can pop it around, it causes problems to defend.”

“Players who pick the ball up and run with it, essentially you only have to stop them. That is what happens with Salah, even though he has scored eight goals [this season].”
