Egypt international Mohamed Salah has dismissed the possibility of him joining Real Madrid during the summer transfer window. The 25-year-old is enjoying his maiden season with Liverpool in the Premier League, and has no plans to pursue a fresh challenge in the near future.
Salah has been in tremendous form for Liverpool over the course of the current campaign, and he recently notched a brilliant quadruple against Watford, which took his overall tally for the season to 36 goals across all competitions.
As a result, he set a new record for a Liverpool player after having surpassed Fernando Torres for the most goals in the debut campaign for the club. Salah now has the opportunity to surpass Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record of 34 after having scored 28 times in the top-flight, with seven more games to play.
Speaking prior to the Watford game, Salah was quizzed about his future plans, to which he replied: “I said since day one here that I’m happy here at Liverpool and I want to show my football here. If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed – mentally, physically, everything.”
Salah’s next Liverpool challenge will be after the international break against Crystal Palace after which there is the tricky prospect of a Champions League quarter-final tie against Premier League leaders Manchester City.
