Liverpool transfer news: Mohamed Salah 'to force Real Madrid move' after Champions League
Liverpool and Real Madrid face off with Champions League glory at stake on Saturday night.
The Reds go into the match as underdogs despite having Salah, arguably the best player in world football, at their disposal.
The Liverpool star is on Real’s radar with the La Liga giants reportedly willing to pay whatever it takes to lure the player to the Bernabeu.
Jurgen Klopp has always insisted the Egypt international will not be going anywhere.
But that has not stopped Spanish outlet Don Balon from saying Salah wants out of Liverpool this summer.
Any move is likely to be one of the biggest in football history.
Liverpool coaxed £142million out of Barcelona when they were pursuing Philippe Coutinho in January.
And it is not unfeasible to think the Merseyside giants will demand more for Salah, who has struck 44 times this season.
Don Balon say Salah is keen to join Real as he sees it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
However, a major stumbling block is Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.
Real are willing to pay £131m to get a deal done – but Liverpool are demanding nearer £175m to let their talisman go.
Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane has admitted he would not swap Salah for Cristiano Ronaldo despite the Liverpool star’s terrific form.
“No, I have Cristiano and I talk about my players,” he said.
Zidane also insisted Liverpool would not be more up for the final than his own players.
“I am calm, not very nervous – that’s my character,” he said.
“I have a lot of confidence from my previous finals, which allows me not to have the same nerves as some other players. I don’t see Liverpool being hungrier than us.”
