Mohamed Salah may make a move to Spain

Tue 30 March 2021 | 10:26

When the Egypt international was quizzed about his future at Anfield, he admitted that it is not up to him.

Mohamed Salah

hinted that he may be interested in making a move to

La Liga

.

Real Madrid

have long been keen on acquiring the

Liverpool

star’s services.

With the

Premier League

reigning champions struggling this season, the speculations regarding his departure will not go away.

The Liverpool star had an interview with

Marca

before the Reds’ Champions League battle against Real Madrid.

"

It's not up to me [whether I stay],"

Salah said. 

"We'll see what happens but I prefer not to talk about that now.

"[My relationship with Klopp] is a normal relationship between two professionals. That's how I'd describe it."

When asked if he would like to feature in La Liga, since he played in England and Italy, Salah added:

"I hope to be able to play for many more years.

"Why not? No one knows what's going to happen in the future, so... maybe one day [I will play in in Spain], yes."

The 28-year-old also spoke of

Zinedine Zidane

, saying:

"He's a great coach. He's won three Champions Leagues. He's doing a very good job with the team. He left and he came back to help the team win trophies again. He was one of my idols when I was little. He's doing great as a coach."

Neil Jones

, Liverpool correspondent for

Goal

, said:

"Another interview, another Spanish publication. 

"After AS in December, we have Marca in March, with Mohamed Salah providing another exclusive to a newspaper with strong links to Real Madrid. 

"Understandable, in this instance, given the forthcoming Champions League meeting between Real and Liverpool. Salah's quotes on that tie were relatively tame. He resisted the urge to fan the flames when it came to Sergio Ramos, and spoke respectfully about Zinedine Zidane and his team. 

"He was, of course, asked about his future once more, giving another rather vague answer. "We will see," was the basic thrust of it.

"That, undoubtedly, will spark fresh rumours about a possible summer move, as will the rather curt answer he gave about his relationship with Jurgen Klopp. "Two professionals," was how he described that.

"The truth is, however, that a Salah exit from Anfield is not at all likely this summer. Liverpool are planning for next season with their top scorer, and their plans to offer him a new contract extension remain. Salah's current deal expires in 2023.

"Who, if anyone, could afford him now? Certainly not Barcelona, whose financial woes are there for all to see, and probably not Real, who are expected to target younger players that can carry the club over the next decade. Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, for example.

"Would Ligue 1 and PSG appeal to a player for whom legacy and worldwide recognition is so important? Probably not. Salah knows, despite the problems of this season, that Liverpool are a club set up to challenge for major honours in the coming seasons.

"And Liverpool expect him to be leading that charge."
