Real Madrid, Man United, Bayern to battle for Mohamed Salah – Report
The Egyptian winger scored a penalty in the second minute of the game after Moussa Sissoko had appeared to have handled Sadio Mane’s cross inside the box before Devock Origi scored a second goal in the 87th minute of the game as to secure Liverpool’s 6th title and put them one behind AC Milan.
He becomes just the third Arab player to win the European title, behind Algeria’s Rabah Madjer with FC Porto and Morocco’s Achraf Hakimi during his time at Real Madrid.
Salah could also follow Hakimi in becoming the only second Arab player to sign for Real Madrid as the Los Blancos remain keen on a move for the Egyptian in the summer, according to Spanish newspaper AS.
AS added that the European giants tried to sign Salah last summer, but the deal fell through after Liverpool demanded more than £180m for him.
The report has also added that Bayern Munich and Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Mohamed Salah’s situation at Liverpool after disappointing campaigns for both clubs.
Asked about his future after helping Liverpool to Champions League glory, Salah refused to comment, saying: “Now I can not talk about my future.”
However, Real Madrid boss Zidane has revealed his admiration for Salah before, saying that he rates the Liverpool winger a lot.
“Salah is a great player, shown that at Roma, now Liverpool,” Zidane said in December 2017 during his first stint as Real Madrid manager.
“He is still young, improving all the time. I don’t talk much about other players, but he is a player I rate a lot.”
Salah has also named Zinédine Zidane as his childhood hero and added that he used to look up to the Real Madrid boss when he was a kid.
