Liverpool fans look away now: Mohamed Salah has struck a deal with Real Madrid.
That’s according to some dubious reports on Thursday, anyway.
Don Balon are reporting that a total agreement has been reached with the Egypt international.
Salah has been in fine fettle for the Reds this term, bagging more than 40 goals and scooping the PFA Player of the Year Award.
Real are hoping to bag the Liverpool forward in a bid to send a message to Barcelona.
Fiorentina Perez, according to Don Balon , would be willing to pay 200million euros for Salah.
The Spanish outlet claim Liverpool are aware of Salah’s desire to leave and “have simply asked their star player to keep quiet about the move.”
Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez could move the other way, according to reports.
Diario Gol , meanwhile, claims Florentino Perez is looking to get rid for Gareth Bale.
The Los Blancos President wants at least €90million from the sale of the Welsh international.
He is reportedly targeting Salah from Liverpool for €180million – and wants to sell Bale to the Premier League giants for €90million.
But the same publication says the Reds rate the former Roma star at €200million and they value the former Tottenham attacker at just €60million.
Real Madrid and Liverpool go face-to-face on May 26 in the Champions League final.
Elsewhere, Roma goalkeeper Alisson has dealt Liverpool a cruel blow in their pursuit of him.
The Brazilian has been Jurgen Klopp’s preferred target, reports suggest.
But Tutto Mercato Web say the 25-year-old will sign a new Roma deal until 2023.
With him out of the running, Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak should be on Liverpool’s radar this summer, Sky Sports pundit Ian Wright says.
Reds boss Klopp has backed Loris Karius as the club’s current number one and he is reportedly in line to be handed a contract extension.
But Klopp is said to be preparing to bring in a new goalkeeper ahead of next season.
