Cristiano Ronaldo's Saudi club Al Nassr 'make contact' over deal for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr are attempting to sign Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, it has been claimed.

Ever since Ronaldo acrimoniously departed Manchester United for Al-Nassr last season, the Saudi Pro League has attracted some of the game’s biggest stars.

Al-Ittihad won the title in back in May and have since added Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kanté to their ranks. Meanwhile, Al-Hilal, the most successful team in Saudi Arabia and Asia in terms of titles, have signed Rúben Neves from Wolves and Chelsea’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

The fourth of the Gulf state’s ‘big four’, Al-Ahli, announced the arrival of Édouard Mendy on Wednesday, while many more of Europe’s elite are expected to make a move before the new season kicks off in August.


Indeed, a Saudi football official, Hafez Al-Medlej even claimed he wanted to see Liverpool’s talisman, Salah, sign in future.


"Let’s hope that Bernardo Silva, from Manchester City, arrives. We must also start working on the signing of Mohamed Salah since he is overwhelmingly popular in the Arab world and in Europe," Al-Medlej recently told Koura.

"I think Salah still has records to break with Liverpool, so I hope that if he doesn’t come now he will in the future."


Salah to Saudi Arabia?

Rudy Galetti told GIVEMESPORT Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal are both attempting to sign Salah this summer.

On the Liverpool star, the journalist said: "For sure, he's attracted the attention of Saudi Arabian clubs.

“Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal, at the moment, are the clubs that have shown the greatest interest in Mohamed Salah.


“Contacts are in progress and both clubs are trying to understand if there is room for negotiation."

Salah moving to Saudi Arabia this summer appears unlikely, however, given the 31-year-old signed a new Liverpool contract last year and remains at the peak of his powers.

In an underwhelming season for the Reds, the Egyptian netted some 30 goals in 51 appearances.
