Former Liverpool defender has spoken about the Egyptian’s potential interest in playing for LaLiga giants.

Mohamed Salah

has previously ruled out nothing regarding his future as he has left the door open for La Liga giants to make their bids in future transfer windows. The player has reached everything with

the Reds

and might be interested in playing in a different league for the remainder of his peak form. In addition to Champions League, Club World Cup, and Premier League trophies, the 28-year-old has won individual awards too. The Egyptian forward has won Golden Boots and a Player of the Year award in the Premier League as he remains an option for the leading clubs across Europe. Jaimie Carragher admits that Salah might be interested in a move to La Liga if the Spanish giants would be eager to sign him.

“Mo Salah is definitely one of those players who would look at his career and maybe want Barcelona or Real Madrid on his CV.”

He told

The Mirror.

“Some players look at their career like that. I think Eden Hazard always wanted to go to Real Madrid at some stage.

“I wouldn't be surprised if a few years ago, when Mo Salah was mapping his career out, that is something he would like to have done, but I think the situation now - financially and his age - means clubs don't have that kind of money for him.

“You are talking in excess of £100m and I think Real Madrid and Barcelona would be looking at Mbappe or Haaland or even Mane ahead of Salah now because of his age.

“Those two clubs are not flush with money and his contract still has some time to run at Liverpool. So I'm not fearful as a Liverpool fan that he is going to leave any time soon.”

Asked about Salah’s recent performances, Carragher responded:

“Salah has not been in great form of late - but that can be said of the whole team. Then you look at it and he is still the top scorer in the Premier League, so you think he is due a performance and a goal. He doesn't normally go this long without a goal.”
