According to reports this morning, Real Madrid are becoming increasingly interested in Mo Salah – and could make a January approach for him.
The Daily Star cover an article from Spain by Don Balon, which states the Champions League holders will offer winger Lucas Vasquez and plenty of cash for our Egyptian flyer.
Salah has scored 19 goals already this season; a barbaric number considering they’ve all come from open play and he starts from the wing.
Real Madrid will offer Vasquez for Salah? Please.. Would rather they offered us Antonio Nunez again. Worth £200m+ already.

Vasquez is a decent player, but just a sub for Zinedine Zidane and in truth, not in Salah’s league.
The potential offer in fact reminds us of back in 2004 when Real secured Michael Owen and gave us Antonio Nunez in return…
Our 25-year-old just won the African Player of the Year award and is settling into life on Merseyside.
Obviously, if he keeps up his current level, Real Madrid, Barcelona and probably PSG are going to become interested, but that doesn’t mean we have to sell.
Traditionally when we’ve signed an exceptional foreigner, we keep them for at least three years before we’re pushed into a sale. Look at Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano and Luis Suarez.
The chances of Salah leaving in January are as follows: zero.
