Mohamed Salah's Post Final Comment 'Reignites' Real Madrid Interest
Mohamed Salah was asked about his future in the aftermath of the Champions League final and his refusal to rule out a move away from Liverpool has caused Real Madrid to reignite their interest.
Is winning the Champions League final now considered the best time to reveal that you don't think your immediate future is with the team you've just helped win Europe's biggest club prize?
Just a year ago both match winner Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo revealed in the aftermath of Real Madrid's third win in a row that they were considering their futures at the Bernabeu.
It felt like Bale's was a plea for more game time or he'd move and Ronaldo's was for more money and more attention after Bale's incredible performance off the bench but in the end it was the Portuguese forward who left, moving to Juventus last summer.
On Saturday Liverpool, who were Real's opponents that night, beat Spurs to win their first European title. In the aftermath Mohamed Salah was asked about his future with the Egyptian saying, "I don't want to discuss my future now"
Whilst it's far from hinting he wants a move Spanish outlet AS report that his inability to confirm his stay in Merseyside has 'reignited' interest from Real Madrid.
Salah was on the shortlist to replace Ronaldo when the club's leading all time scorer decided to move to Italy last year but they were put off by the €200 million price tag.
That price is unlikely to have moved since then but Los Blancos are expected to spend big this summer after a poor season by all accounts.
They failed to replace Ronaldo, went through two managers, ended up back with Zinedine Zidane after getting knocked out in the last 16 of the Champions League and finished third in La Liga.
The report says that Bayern Munich could also be interested if there is any chance of Liverpool selling the former Roma man.
It still seems highly unlikely that Salah would leave Anfield at this point but you can never rule a transfer out, especially when it comes to Florentino Perez.
Will Salah move on this summer?
