No matter how big a club is in the Premier League, there is always an underlying fear that top players will leave if Spain’s Barcelona or Real Madrid come in for them.
At the moment, Mohamed Salah is Liverpool’s main man following his prolific start to life at Anfield.
The Egyptian international signed for the Merseyside outfit from Roma last summer and has gone on to score 23 goals and create seven assists in 29 appearances in all competitions.
Inevitably, the 25-year-old has begun being linked with moves to the big boys abroad.
According to The Independent, Egyptian national team manager Hany Abo Rida has claimed that Madrid will make a move for Salah in the summer.
The former Chelsea star was a far cry from his scintillating self on Monday night when the team fell to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Swansea City.
Some fans thought that his performance would have warned off the Spanish giants, while others think that he is bound to head to the Bernabeu at some point.
#lfc I wonder who liverpool will buy with the salah money this summer ?

Liverpool will become a arsenal if they don't watch out now is the time to invest! Great team at present just missing 3 players to make it into a fantastic team . Not doing so now will just make it hard for salah and others not to go to Madrid and so on ! #lfc

When Real come knocking and #LFC don’t invest seriously now & in the summer I think Salah will himself pay to leave too. Lack of incentives

Well I hope Real Madrid we’re watching Mo Salah tonight because they won’t be interested now! Absolutely terrible performance tonight! Lallana was the only bright spark in that team once he came on! #lfc
