Graeme Souness: Salah, Mane’s heads might be turned with potential Real Madrid, Barcelona interest
Liverpool legend Graeme Souness feels that Salah and Mane could be convinced by interest from Europe’s elite.
The last two seasons in European competition have proved that Salah and Mane are right up there with the very best forwards in the world.
Whenever a new star emerges at this level, it is only natural for the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona to be interested and that appears to be the case.
Former Liverpool captain Graeme Souness believes that Liverpool’s European success may not be enough to convince the African duo to stay.
The Scotsman said “Real Madrid and Barcelona will be sniffing round Salah and Mane and I think one of them will be targeted this summer. Both of those clubs are in the process of rebuilding and they tend to tempt any player when they go after them.
“We saw that in the past with Luiz Suarez and Philippe Coutinho and even though they enjoyed playing for Liverpool, their heads were turned when Barcelona wanted them. That will happen again now with Salah and Mane.”
The pair will initially spend their summer focusing on the Africa Cup of Nations, where both Senegal and Egypt are in strong contention to go the distance.
