Real Madrid will have to break world transfer record to sign Liverpool star Mohamed Salah

Salah has four years left on his Anfield deal, but that hasn’t stopped the club looking to secure him to a better deal to fend off unwanted suitors.

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is a target for Spanish giants Real Madrid – but any deal would have to be for a colossal amount of money.

The Egyptian has taken the Premier League by storm this season, having scored 23 times in just 27 games as the Reds look to secure a European place for next season.

After signing from Roma last summer for £31.5million, Salah has already attracted attention from footballing super-powers, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in signing the 25-year-old.

Madrid have made no secret they’re looking into a long-term replacement for the evergreen Cristiano Ronaldo, and see the Anfield front-man as a viable option.

Despite having four-more years on his current deal, Jurgen Klopp’s men would find it hard to turn down an offer for Salah should it be in the stratosphere.

Paris Saint-Germain’s world-record deal for Neymar last summer springs to mind, and the Reds are unlikely to budge unless a deal of that nature landed in the offices of Melwood.

Liverpool look set to have an enviable war chest available for Jurgen Klopp’s summer rebuilding plans.

Profits are up to £39million due to increased TV revenues and the Reds look set to secure another season in the Champions League with a top four finish within their grasp, not to mention taking up the role as dark horses in this season’s competition having all but secured their place in the quarter-finals after a 5-0 first leg win over Porto.

Whilst Philippe Coutinho was allowed to leave, for a British record £142m, big money has already been plowed back into the club with Virgil van Dijk joining from Southampton for £70m.

The Mirror reports today that the latest financial figures show how FSG have guided the club into an excellent position off the pitch too.

Liverpool’s transfer kitty is likely to be sizeable this summer with last year’s figures leaving a £39m profit rolling over into the 2017/18 campaign.

Since then, the Reds have spent less than £1m over the two subsequent windows, with almost £150m spent and around the same amount earned from sales with Coutinho’s sale covering most of the investment on the likes of Van Dijk, Mo Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

With an additional budget set aside for each window, plus further money available from more sales, Liverpool should be looking at close to £100m net this summer.
