Mohammed Salah Vs Barcelona

Mohamed Salah has hinted he may be open to leaving Liverpool in the future amid speculation linking him to Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The 28-year-old has had another impressive season despite his side’s dreadful title defence and is the Premier League’s joint-top scorer with 17 goals.

However, there has been speculation that off the pitch he is not 100 per cent happy at Anfield, and he continues to be linked with a move to Spain.

During the defeat to Chelsea in February, Jurgen Klopp’s decision to take Salah off mid-way through the game prompted a cryptic message from his agent on social media, with his future at Anfield continuing to be a topic of gossip.

His agent Rabby Abbas Issa posted a full stop on Twitter just minutes later and reports suggested the Egyptian was the subject of some gentle ribbing in the dressing room in the days that followed the incident.

And ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League quarter-final vs Real Madrid in April, Salah refused to rule out a future move to the Spanish top-flight.

When asked whether he had a future desire to play in LaLiga, Salah – currently on international duty with Egypt – told MARCA: “I hope to be able to play for many more years. Why not?

“No one knows what’s going to happen in the future, so… maybe one day, yes.

“I hope to be doing the same thing that I’ve been doing in recent years. Winning trophies, scoring goals, helping my team win trophies…

“That’s the most important thing for me.”

Salah has been hugely prolific since joining Liverpool in 2017 and has helped the Reds to a Champions League and Premier League title.

He has scored 119 goals in 192 appearances since joining from Roma in a £37million deal.

Claims of a supposed rift between Salah and Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane has added weight to the reports of a possible exit for the Egyptian King.

There have been questions over their partnership and relationship at Anfield, with fans observing an undercurrent of a rivalry between the forwards on the pitch.

But ex-Liverpool striker Neil Mellor recently rubbished those claims on talkSPORT, insisting the rivalry between Mane and Salah is a purely healthy one.

“I think they both want to be the top scorer, don’t they,” said the ex-Reds striker.

“That’s in them, they want to do well, they want to score goals. I don’t think there’s a problem, not at all.

“If you look at the amount of times they do try and find each other, they still do that, but they want to take responsibility in the final third.

“We’re all strikers,” Mellor told Brazil and Rangers legend Ally McCoist, “so we know that.

“If the chance is there to score they want to do it, and Salah and Mane are no different.”
