Real Madrid have reportedly been told that they will have to break the bank to lure Mohamed Salah away from Anfield.

The Merseyside club are believed to demanding at least £142m to prise Mohamed Salah away.

The Egypt international forward has been in scintillating form during his debut campaign at Anfield, found the back of the net 32 times across all competitions including 24 in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old winger’s performances have reportedly drawn the interest from European champions Real Madrid, that are planning massive squad overhaul after the end of the current campaign.

The futures of front three Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have all come under question as a result, and club president Florentino Perez is planning to lure Mohamed Salah to Santiago Bernabeu according to the reports from Spanish newspapers.

However, El Confidencial reports that Jurgen Klopp’s side will not entertain any bids below the €160m (£142m) which Barcelona paid for Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window.

Such a price tag could force Perez to look elsewhere to strengthen his offensive end with big-name players such as Robert Lewandowski, Edinson Cavani and Antoine Griezmann have all linked with a switch to Santiago Bernabeu in the recent years.
