Real Madrid reportedly have identified Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah as their galactico signing for the next season.
The Los Blancos head-coach Zinedine Zidane has publicly claimed that he has no desire to sign new players during the January transfer window, despite Real Madrid being fourth in the Spanish league with 16 points adrift of leaders Barcelona.
According to Sky Italia, Real Madrid’s stance has changed following the Catalans £142m signing of the Merseyside Reds playmaker Philippe Coutinho, and now Madrid wants to match their rivals with signing world-class players.
The report suggested that Salah is on the Los Blancos radar following the Egyptian’s scintillating start at Anfield, in which he has scored 17 Premier League goals.
The attacker, who has scored 17 goals in the Premier League, is currently one goal behind the Spurs superstar star Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.
Meanwhile, LIVERPOOL head-coach Jurgen Klopp is reportedly confident of completing the signing of Luis Suarez from Barcelona after Philippe Coutinho finalised the transfer to Barcelona.
Liverpool lost Brazilian playmaker to Barcelona earlier yesterday with the South American forward moving to the Nou Camp for £142million deal.
Before the transfer was announced, reports suggested that the Merseyside Reds had launched a stunning enquiry about Luis Suarez, whose future in La Liga is uncertain.
