Liverpool fans told Klopp ‘would sell Salah’ for whopping £200 million
Liverpool might be tempted to sell Mohamed Salah if Real Madrid offer an eye-watering £200m, according to journalist Jonathan Northcroft.
Liverpool have become one of the most dangerous and exciting sides to watch in Europe under the guidance to Jurgen Klopp, partly down to the qualities of both Salah and Mane.
The two attackers have become two of the best players in their position in world football, and there performances over the past 24 months have led Liverpool to a Premier League title challenge and two Champions League finals.
Liverpool have previously sold Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in recent years and, while Salah is contracted at Anfield until 2023, Northcroft has claimed the Reds could sell for £200 million
“There’s no pressure, there’s no desire at the moment to sell,” he said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“But they are in that nice position now where if someone wants to offer Philippe Coutinho money, which probably wouldn’t be in the next year for Salah, but might come somewhere down the lime, they can present the head coach with the option, ‘what do you wanna do here?’
“And they can also take into account whether the player wants to go, that was a position they obviously found themselves in with Coutinho.
“So let’s say in a year’s time Real Madrid did materialise with £150m-£200m for Salah, the player wanted to go and Jurgen Klopp thought ‘well, that’s a good deal in terms of being able to reinvest in the squad.’ I think they’d be in position to do that and they would have things lined up.”
Liverpool have just won the Champions League, so must be on a huge high right now. But they will know that Madrid and Barcelona may come calling this summer.
However, they are in no rush to sell their two superstars and unless both clubs offer something sensational, it would be a massive shock to see either leave in the coming months.
Liverpool are on the verge of total dominance and Klopp will need to spend some big money over the next few months to improve on the side that he already has. So even the Germans knows that losing players right now will not happen.
Why would they want to leave now, when they are playing under one of the best managers in the game?
