13 January 2018

Asked about Real Madrid, Salah told Soccer Laduma: "Well, I have heard so many rumours it does not bother me anymore".

The Egypt worldwide has been a revelation at Anfield since his arrival from Roma last summer, scoring 17 goals and registering five assists in 22 Premier League appearances so far this season.

That said, if he were to maintain this form then Liverpool could well have a fight on their hands in the summer, particularly if Real decide to phase out Cristiano Ronaldo and/or Gareth Bale. "They have treated me very well in Liverpool and at this moment, I belong to Liverpool and I am happy at Anfield".

Salah also won a poll for the 2017 Arab player of the year, launched by the beIN Sports channel on Twitter in December.

Pushed into advanced areas on the right flank, Salah has given so many defences so many issues.

It's brilliant news for Liverpool, given they've just lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, and would not like to lose another key player full stop, let alone in this transfer window.

Salah's impressive performances have attracted the attention of Spanish giants Real Madrid, who reportedly want to make the 25-year-old their next marquee signing.

Five time Ballon D'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have failed to reach the highs of seasons previous in goals and Gareth Bale has spent most of this half of the season injured.
