Another day, another Mohamed Salah departure story. Within one incredible debut season with Liverpool, Salah has been linked to all the tops clubs in Europe in almost every summer transfer window. This season looks to be no different.

But rather than rumours of the Egyptian international wanting to leave the club, it is now Salah who has concerns the Reds may want to offload him in the summer.

Within the past few months Salah has expressed interest in the possibility of playing for Spanish giants such as Real Madrid and FC Barcelona one day and fueled these talks further in a recent interview with Marca stating a move away from Anfield could be on the cards in the future.

Despite this, reports have stated Mohamed Salah does not plan on pushing for a move out of Anfield this season. But this does not mean Liverpool may not consider selling the winger this summer according to the Athletic.

But the eyes of possible Spanish suitors could be elsewhere as the likes of Real Madrid have made Kylian Mbappe their prime target in this coming transfer window following his stalling contract talks with Paris Saint-Germain. Should Mbappe decide to leave this could open the door for the Parisians to pursue a deal for Salah.

This has also led to talks that both Liverpool and PSG could possibly consider a swap deal for both players given Liverpool’s interest in Mbappe also.

Salah, who’s contract ends with Liverpool in 2023 has been at the heart of their success in recent years breaking records and scoring for fun with 122 goals in 195 appearances for the club.

The sale of Mohamed Salah would be a huge financial coup for Liverpool but unless the reigning Premier League champions can simultaneously attract a player or players of similar quality to the Egyptian, it may be smart business to hold off for the future.
