Real Madrid are reportedly anxious to sign Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah. On 22 June 2017, Salah agreed a transfer to Liverpool.
He signed a long-term contract with the Reds for an initial €42m fee that could rise to up to €50m. The fee was a club record, eclipsing the £35m spent on Andy Carroll in 2011. He was assigned the number 11 shirt previously worn by Roberto Firmino who instead switched to number 9.
He joined the club on 1 July upon the opening of the summer transfer window, becoming Liverpool’s first Egyptian player. He scored on his debut against Watford in a 3–3 draw on 12 August. On 24 August, Salah scored his second goal for Liverpool, in a 2017–18 UEFA Champions League play-off round 4–2 win (6–3 agg) against Hoffenheim.
Three days later, Salah scored and assisted a goal in a 4–0 victory over Arsenal. For his performances in August, Salah was awarded Player of the Month by Liverpool supporters.
So much so that the Spanish giants could fork out a whopping £90m to get their man. Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of the Egyptian striker and he reportedly favours him over a move for Harry Kane. Spanish news states that Zidane is keen to sign Salah at the end of the season. Diario Gol also states that Real would have no problem paying up to £90m.
