Zinedine Zidane Talks Up Real Madrid Move For Liverpool Star Mohamed Salah And ‘Rates Him A Lot’
Salah has displayed incredible form since his club-record £36million move to Liverpool from Roma in the summer and already has 19 goals to his name for the Merseyside giants in all competitions.
The Liverpool forward is now under the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The Egyptian has also been rewarded with the BBC African Player of the Year award earlier this week.
The former Roma winger played a pivotal role in guiding Egypt to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Salah scored five of the seven goals in Egypt’s World Cup qualifying campaign.
The Egyptian scored a late strike against Congo in October to make sure that his country qualified for their first ever World Cup in over a quarter of a century.
And his incredible form this season has caught the attention of the La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Real Madrid have made a poor start this season and are fourth in the La Liga table – eight points behind current league leaders Barcelona.
The Los Blancos sealed a place in the knock-out of the Champions League but they finished second in their group and drew Paris Saint-German in the last-16.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidne is under pressure and is desperate to overturn their form as quickly as possible and has admitted in public that he will try everything possible to bolster the squad in January.
And Zidane has now suggested he would be keen on making a move for the former Roma winger.
“Salah is a great player. He showed that at Roma, now at Liverpool,” Zidane said.
“He’s still young and is improving all the time. I don’t talk much about other players, but he is a player I rate a lot.”
Eden Hazard has also been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid with both Florentino Perez and Zidane huge admirers of the Belgian playmaker.
