MOHAMED SALAH has told Real Madrid his demands that he wants to sign for the club from Liverpool, it has been sensationally claimed.
The Egyptian winger has been in red-hot form for the Reds this season. He has scored 37 goals in all competitions already in a stunning first year at Anfield.
It has led to reports that some of the biggest teams in Europe have started taking notice of the former Roma star.
Real Madrid are amongst them, who are expected to spend big in the summer. Zinedine Zidane is set to be gifted funds to bring about a new era at the Bernabeu.
And with Salah high on that list, the 25-year-old has told the club what he wants.
According to Don Balon, Salah has demanded that he be given a starting position in the XI. He is worried that his career could go like Gareth Bale’s, who struggles to get into the first-team.
The ex-Chelsea forward has also stated that he wants a big pay rise, something Los Blancos did not expect.
Jurgen Klopp revelaed how his prized asset is fast becoming close to Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
He said: “I don’t think Mo or anybody else wants to be compared with Lionel Messi – he is the one who has been doing what he’s been doing for what feels like 20 years or so.
“The last player I know who had the same influence on a team performance was Diego Maradona. But Mo is in a fantastic way, that’s for sure.
“As it always is in life, if you have to have the skills you have to show that constantly and consistently, and he is very good. He helps us a lot.”
