Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah leaves the door open to Real Madrid move with cryptic comment
Mohamed Salah has left the door open to a move to Real Madrid – but insists he is happy at Liverpool for now.
Salah has been in stunning form for Liverpool since signing from Roma in the summer.
And his goals have put Real Madrid on alert with Zinedine Zidane publicly praising him and the Egypt boss claiming he is destined to play at the Bernabeu.
The Egypt star has scored 27 goals already – including 21 in the league – for the Reds and while he says he’s happy at Anfield he was coy when asked about a move to Spain.
“At the moment I am here,” he told Spanish publication Marca.
“I want to concentrate on my team and finish the season very well.”
And when asked about the comments from his national team boss Hector Cuper he refused to distance himself from them.
He said: ”Why do you think they say these things? I don’t have much to say about that. If I have to say something, I’ll say I’m happy at Liverpool.”
Salah has been revelation since joining Liverpool after a poor spell with Chelsea previously.
But he insists he always believed in himself and knew he could score goals at this level.
He has become one of the top players in the Premier League and the buy of the summer.
“I’ve always scored goals wherever I’ve played, but this year I’m doing so a lot more… it’s not a surprise for me,” he said on his form.
“After arriving here the first time [Chelsea] was always in my head, and after playing in Rome, coming back here to England was great because I love the Premier League.
“Last year I had some good performances for Roma, but I arrived as a forward and started playing out wide.
“This year I’m scoring more goals. In any case I want to help the team to win titles or be in a good position in the league.
“I didn’t do well (with Chelsea) because I didn’t play many games. I was there for one year, but I only played during the first six months. After that, I hardly participated.
“I went to Fiorentina, scored goals, then in Rome I played very well and returned to England. But it’s not a matter of succeeding or not.”
