LIVERPOOL will reportedly demand Real Madrid fork out £175m if they want to sign Mohamed Salah this summer.
Salah has emerged as one of the Premier League’s leading lights since joining Liverpool from Roma in a deal worth an initial £37m last June.
And his 35 goals in all competitions under Jurgen Klopp have seen him touted as a future Galactico as Real look to revitalise their squad.
Liverpool will drive a hard bargain if Real come calling for Salah, just as they did when Barcelona first targeted Philippe Coutinho last year.
And the latest reports from Spain indicate they already have a mammoth valuation in mind, news of which has has got back to Florentino Perez.
According to Don Balon, Liverpool will tell Real ‘€200m (£175m) or nothing’ if they make a move for Salah. And that prospective price tag is said to mirror the figure quoted to Barcelona for Coutinho last summer.
Real Madrid president Perez is apparently unwilling to spend £175m on Salah as he looks to replace Gareth Bale though. And that has led him to devise a Plan B, focussed on prising Paulo Dybala away from Juventus.
