While international break has been relatively quiet for Liverpool players, Mohamed Salah's interview with Marca changed everything. Just days before Liverpool travel to Madrid to play Zinedine Zidane's side, Salah refused to rule out a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid. 

When asked if playing in Spain is in his future, Mohamed Salah said "Why not [play in Spain]? No one knows what's going to happen in the future, so... maybe one day, yes."

In the same interview with the Spanish outlet, the Egyptian winger discussed his relationship with Liverpool Jurgen Klopp. His response has not exactly reassured the Anfield faithful. 

“It’s a normal relationship between two professionals. That’s how I’d describe it.”

However, Daily Mail journalist Dominic King has given some reassurance to Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool supporters everywhere. 

King has said that ,"Neither Barcelona or Real Madrid have the kind of money to even convince Liverpool to come to the table for Mo Salah, and Liverpool have no intention of selling."

In a window where Liverpool may not have Champions League football as an added selling point to potential new players, the Reds will need to keep hold of their current stars. 

Mohamed Salah's fellow Liverpool winger, Sadio Mane, has just come out and discussed his happiness at the Merseyside club. 

When speaking to the Liverpool Echo Mane said, "I am more proud than ever to be a Liverpool player."

After international break is finished, Liverpool have have two games in a short period with their matches against Arsenal and Real Madrid just three days apart.
