Spanish football clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona have cooled down their interest in signing Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, reported English tabloid The Express.
In April, Liverpool star Salah denied rumors about him leaving the Reds and joining La Liga giants Real Madrid. In an interview with the Spanish online football website Marca, the Liverpool forward denied any talks about him joining Real Madrid, “at the moment I am here,” he declared, “I want to concentrate on my team and finish the season very well. Why do you think they say these things? I don’t have much to say about that [reports linking him with Real]. “If I have to say something, I’ll say I’m happy at Liverpool,” Salah said.
However, so far, Salah is still at Liverpool and moving to another club does not seem on the table yet.
Salah just won best player in the UEFA poll for the champions league quarterfinals on Friday. Salah scored a goal and assisted another in Liverpool’s 3-0 thrashing of Manchester City in Anfield on Wednesday, giving the Reds one foot in the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament.
Among Salah’s other achievements are BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017. He has just equalled Drogba as the highest scoring African in one Premier League season. He also made the World Soccer Magazine’s list for top 500 players among other achievements.
