Real Madrid To Offer Eden Hazard In Hope Of Signing Mohamed Salah

Real Madrid are set to launch an audacious bid to try and sign Mohamed Salah, and will offer Eden Hazard as part of the deal for the Liverpool star.

Salah has been in incredible form this season and continued that vein on Saturday, with a brilliant assist for Sadio Mane and a mesmerising goal of his own, as Liverpool battered Watford.

The Egyptian is probably the best player in the world right now considering his form, though he's still likely to miss out on the Ballon d'Or, and any team in the world would want him.

Salah's contract runs until 2023 but he is yet to an agree an extension at Anfield, with reports he wants £500,000-a-week, and that could open the door for a move away from the club.

According to journalist Ekrem Konur, Real want to test the Reds' resolve and are willing to offer the Premier League side cash plus Hazard to get the deal done.

Whilst Salah has soared since his move to Liverpool in 2017, Hazard's move to Real, from Chelsea, has not gone so well and Los Blancos are ready to cash in on him.

The Belgian, who lit up England's top tier for seven years with the Blues, has been blighted by injuries and a loss of form since moving to the Bernabeu in 2019.

Hazard's transfer cost the Spanish giants a reported €100 million but his value in a move for Salah would be a hell of a lot less, especially as he's now 30 and 18 months older than the former Roma star.

Real have also been heavily linked with moves for Kylian Mbappe, who is out of contract next summer, and Erling Haaland, who is available for around £65 million at the same time.

It's unlikely that Real would be able to get both that pair and Salah, although they would certainly rival, and likely surpass, any other trio of forwards if they did.

As well as the move for those forwards, Real have been amongst several teams rumoured to want to sign Paul Pogba, with the midfielder's contract also up in the summer.

Whilst Manchester United want him to sign a new deal before January, ABC report La Liga leaders Real want to offer him £12 million-a-year and a £25 million signing on bonus.

The World Cup winner criticised Manchester United's tactics following their 4-2 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday, as the team continued their recent struggles despite the talent on show.
