There’s some transfer nonsense from Spain that probably isn’t worth paying much attention to, but here it is anyway…
Real Madrid are supposedly keen to sign Mo Salah this summer (who wouldn’t be?) and could offer us two players to make sure it happens, according to questionable source Diario Gol.
So who’s on offer, you ask? Gareth Bale? Toni Kroos? Anyone vaguely tempting?
Nope, Karim Benzema and Dani Ceballos, apparently.
Whether there’s even a grain of truth to it or not, file this under a deal that’s destined to fail – there is surely no way Liverpool would accept two Madrid cast-offs for arguably the best goal-scoring winger on the planet right now.
Mo has, of course, been an absolute revelation since his summer move from Roma and is much-loved at Anfield playing in a side perfectly tailored to his talents thanks to Jurgen Klopp.
While any player would be tempted if Real Madrid came calling, it’s hard to imagine the Egyptian will be in a hurry to move, not that Liverpool would give him up for Benzema and Ceballos anyway.
Diario Gol are well known for producing large amounts of transfer nonsense, so we’d imagine there’s no need to worry about this one, Reds fans.
