Real Madrid are keen on marking Mohamed Salah, yet would battle to bear the cost of an arrangement for the Liverpool assailant, as indicated by the club’s previous president Ramon Calderon.
Salah made the way for a likely move to Santiago Bernabeu recently by communicating his reverence towards the Blancos and Barcelona while examining his future.
The Egyptian forward still has two years left to run on his current deal at Anfield and, although Calderon thinks the Reds will be reluctant to sell, he can see Madrid testing their resolve later this year.
The former Madrid president told ON Time Sports: “He is a great player and a goalscorer. He helped Liverpool by giving his best, but I don’t think they will let him go.
“It is expected that, if they were to think about it, they would only let him go for a lot of money.
“Salah is wanted, of course, by Real Madrid, but Liverpool would ask for a lot of money and, if that deal were to be completed, it would be crucial.
“Salah is an extraordinary player with awesome potential, and any club wishes to get such gifts, however for Real Madrid I don’t think they have the monetary way to sign Salah.”
