Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer.

The Egyptian international has one year left on his current contract with the Reds, but it seems that the Premier League side are willing to sell him this summer if an offer of around £60m is presented.

The report further states that clubs like Real Madrid are keeping tabs on the Egyptian international’s situation, and it will be interesting to see how it unfolds over the next few weeks.

The 30-year-old is one of the best players in the world, and he has been an exceptional servant for Liverpool since joining the club from Roma.

Salah has already broken numerous scoring records since returning to the Premier League, and he has helped Liverpool win every single trophy available in club football.

There have been rumours that the Reds might disagree on a new contract with the Egyptian because of his wage demands.

Multiple outlets have claimed different figures with regards to Salah’s demands. Former Liverpool player Don Hutchison reckons the Egyptian wants £450,000 a week, and the Reds have offered him £350,000 a week for four years instead. 

A player of his calibre deserves to be one of the highest-paid footballers in the world, but it seems that Liverpool are unwilling to break their wage structure to accommodate him.

Losing Salah on a free transfer next summer would be a devastating blow for the Premier League side. Therefore, selling him this summer for a reasonable price is hardly a shocking decision.

The reported £60m asking price seems quite reasonable for a player of the Egyptian’s quality, and it will be interesting to see if he can find a suitor in the coming weeks.

The 30-year-old certainly has the quality to justify the reported outlay, and he could improve any side in world football.
