Liverpool’s all time top scorer has said that he fears Liverpool will receive offers they can’t refuse for Egyptian talisman if he continues at his current rate.

The Welshman started by praising Salah, stating “On current form I would place Mo Salah ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s better than them at the moment. Mo is also the African Player of the Year, which – considering the standard of their players throughout Europe – is a great honour.”

“There’s already been talk of Real ­Madrid looking at him – and who can blame them? In today’s inflated market, it wouldn’t surprise me if Liverpool one day received a £200m bid for him. Hopefully, he is happy where he is – after all, he only arrived last summer.”

He continued, “There’s a time and a place to sell a player if the right money comes in, but, for Liverpool, it’s certainly not now. If they are thinking about ­winning the Premier League in the near future, then you can only achieve that with players like Salah. You can’t be a selling club.”

Rush is an undisputed Liverpool legend, and has been very impressed by Salah since his move in the summer window. “Honestly, once he gets inside the penalty area with his speed and ­movement, I swear it’s Messi. He’s been ­unbelievable. You would pay anything to watch him – he just gets you off your seat ­every time he has the ball at his feet. Hopefully, he’ll be at ­Anfield for years to come ­because he can improve.”

Liverpool fans will be hoping that Salah can add to his impressive goal tally in today’s game against Manchester City, as the Reds attempt put an end to Manchester City’s domestic unbeaten record which dates back to the 23rd of April 2017.
