Bayern Munich chief ‘opens door to signing Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah’

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that it would be “an honour” to sign Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah but suggests that they have no imminent plans to bring him to Germany.

Salah, who joined the Reds from Italian side Roma in 2017, has transformed under Jurgen Klopp into one of the world’s best forwards, despite failing to succeed at Chelsea earlier in his career.

The Egyptian’s performances have alerted many of the top clubs in Europe with Rummenigge rating the 28-year-old very highly, comparing him with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, however he is not expecting Salah to arrive at the Bundesliga club any time soon.

“In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he has the skills to play for the best teams in the world,” Rummenigge told ON Time Sports.

“What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.

“At the moment we don’t plan on signing Salah, but certainly it would be an honour to have him.”

Salah is currently the Premier League’s top goalscorer, finding the net 16 times from 22 appearances so far this campaign.
