Liverpool, following their dramatic Champions League exit last night, have reportedly given their ‘unsellable’ Mohamed Salah a price tag.
It may come as a surprise that the Merseysiders are thinking of selling one of their most valuable assets, who is a constant provider of goals and special moments, but they may sacrifice their Egyptian talisman.
Granted, he has not demonstrated the heights we are aware of this campaign, but neither have his teammates in a season where the Reds are purely gunning for top four only.
According to Spanish outlet Fichajes, an €80m would suffice for Liverpool to cut ties with Salah, following an underwhelming few months.
Paris Saint-Germain are a club showing interest in Klopp’s maestro if he were to move on from Anfield for a new challenge, with the French club facing the possibility of losing some frontmen at the end of the season.
Salah would fit PSG’s brand and football club model as he increases sales and eyes on the Parisian outfit through his large individual brand and following himself.
Salah turns 31 in June and so the German boss may look to cash in on the Egyptian King in order to fund his overhaul this summer as he looks to bolster his midfield, in particular.
As mentioned in the media this week, Jude Bellingham remains Liverpool’s primary target.
But they worry that their modest expenditure in recent seasons will mean another club overseas will outbid them for the English sensation, especially with a lack of European football next campaign.
Few inside Anfield will welcome the sale of their Egyptian forward, especially since he became their all-time top goal scorer just weeks ago.
Salah put pen to paper to sign a new deal with his current club last summer, but may look to depart with his desire to play at the highest level possible.
