Rumours linking Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid may have been heavily media-fabricated, but it’s nice to get informed reassurance of the deal’s unlikely nature.
The Egyptian’s incredible season for Liverpool has inevitably triggered speculation touting him as a target for Europe’s elite, who the Reds can deem themselves to be among having reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.
A natural transition to one of Spain’s notorious duo has already threatened to loom in the way it has in the past for the likes of Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.
Let’s be honest, though. There is zero chance of Liverpool parting ways with Salah after a single season, no matter what money is thrown at the club.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has eased uncertainty by quashing suggestions of the forward making the switch to the Bernabeu.

Salah could be granted the opportunity to share a stage with Real Madrid if Liverpool and Zinedine Zidane’s men progress in their respective semi-finals to meet for a blockbuster showdown in Kyiv next month.
The forward’s former employers Roma await as his next European obstacle, triggering flashbacks of Liverpool’s historic 1984 final win in the over the Italian side.
Liverpool’s scoring talisman boasts 39 goals across all competitions and incredibly sits just two behind Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Not only his unimaginable surge through the top-scoring leaderboard, but also the ease at which he has slotted into Jurgen Klopp’s setup has seen Salah stake a worthy claim as the club’s best signing in the Premier League era.
