Mohamed Salah Rejects £150 Million Offer But Will 'Review Situation' Next Summer

Mo Salah will not be leaving Liverpool this summer despite Juventus and Real Madrid reportedly preparing £150 million offers for the Egyptian.

Since joining Liverpool for £36.9 million in 2017, Salah has scored 71 goals for Liverpool, playing an integral part in last season's sixth European Cup triumph.

According to The Mirror, the 27-year old had been tempted by the prospect of joining Real Madrid or returning to Italy with Juventus and Jurgen Klopp felt the need to discuss the situation with those high up in the club.

However it's said he has told the club the timing wouldn't be right for him to leave Anfield just yet- particularly after winning his first trophy with the Reds.

Salah is tied to Liverpool until 2023 after signing a new deal a year ago but will reportedly assess his situation once again next summer.

His colleague Sadio Mane is in the same boat in the sense that he is aware of strong interest from leading European clubs like Real Madrid but is more than content with staying on Merseyside as they look to end the long wait for a Premier League title.

Salah's goal from the spot in the 2-0 win in Madrid made it 100 goal involvements for the former Chelsea winger in what was a completely different Champions League experience to the previous year against Real Madrid.

But instead of erasing it from his memory Salah used last year's Champions League final nightmare as motivation.

"I looked at the picture from last year before the game," Salah said after the game, as per The Telegraph.

I didn't look at the picture for a long time. You can feel what you can beat you so I just looked at it one time and said, 'OK, let's go'.

"I was very disappointed that I got injured and went out after 30 minutes and we lost the game. It was something to motivate me to win this time."
