Press reports claimed on Monday that Liverpool and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah has listed three conditions as requirements for a move to Real Madrid in the summer.
Salah has played 42 matches for Liverpool this season, scoring an incredible 37 goals in all competitions, and assisting 12 others. He tops the Premier League top scorers charts with 29 league goals, with his closest rival Harry Kane behind him by five goals.
Spanish and English press reports claimed that Real Madrid seeks Salah’s services next summer to compensate for the imminent departure of Welshman Gareth Bale in the summer.
The English press reported on Monday that Salah stipulated three conditions to move to Real Madrid.
The Express newspaper quoted Spanish newspaper Don Balon as saying that Salah demands that Real Madrid would ensure Salah’s participation in the starting line-up.
The newspaper pointed out that Salah put this condition after concern about Bale’s lack of playing time in light of the presence of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in the team.
The second condition for Salah was to receive the second highest salary in the team after Ronaldo.
While The Sun newspaper reported that another condition was that Real Madrid signs a contract with Brazilian Alisson, the goalkeeper of Roma, to join Real Madrid along with Salah.
Many top European clubs including Real Madrid and Liverpool seek Alisson’s services due to his outstanding performance this season with Itlay’s Roma.
The Sun stressed that this request might be a blow to Liverpool which seeks both Salah and Alisson in the team.
