Liverpool FC face £200m fight to keep Mo Salah this summer

Every player to have scored at least four goals in a Premier League game. GO!

If he takes Liverpool close to Champions League success and then shines in the World Cup with Egypt, his status will rise to potentially unmanageable levels from Liverpool's perspective.

This is apparently because club directors decided they do not want to do business with Liverpool again due to regret over selling Mo Salah to them last summer.

"Salah has had a phenomenal season".

The Germany worldwide, who has not yet ruled out remaining at Anfield beyond the end of his existing deal this summer, is said to be wanted by Juventus and former club Bayern Munich.

Ian Wright believes it will be hard for Mohamed Salah to turn down Real Madrid as he continues to star for Liverpool.

Whilst the Liverpool player seems to be walking around with the air of a man who feels clubs see him as a prime signing, perhaps he needs to realise that's because he'd be free and there'd be far less effort from Juve and others if the price was, say, €60m.

"I'm not convinced with the goalkeeper scenario, with either [Simon] Mignolet or [Loris] Karius - they've been linked with Jack Butland and he'd be good", said the Sky Sports Pundit while analysing Liverpool's squad on Premier League Daily show on Sky Sports.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may try to suggest to Salah that a move away from Liverpool after one wonderfully successful year would be a gamble, as he may not have the same conditions to excel if he was in a Real Madrid team dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo next season, yet that argument is likely to fall on deaf ears.

"Not being disrespectful to Liverpool, but Salah won't have grown up dreaming of playing for Liverpool - if Real Madrid come knocking, he's going to be taking notice of that".
