Mohamed Salah Refuses To Rule Out Barcelona Or Real Madrid Transfer
Liverpool fans may be getting slightly worried after seeing Mohamed Salah's most recent comments on his Anfield future.
The Egyptian has been in fine form yet again this season, with 11 goals in 12 Premier League appearances and three in six Champions League games.
As such, Reds supporters will be eager for the forward to stick around at the club, possibly for slightly longer than former key players Luis Suarez, Javier Mascherano, Philippe Coutinho, and Xabi Alonso.
However, while speaking to Spanish publication AS this week, Salah refused to rule out following in the footsteps of that trio and moving to one of La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Egyptian said: "I think Madrid and Barcelona are top clubs... We never know what is going to happen in the future, but right now I'm focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League again with my club.
Salah said it was up to the club whether he does eventually leave Liverpool: "That's a tough one, but right now I can say that everything is in the
club's hands. Of course I want to break records here and, I repeat,
every record in the club, but everything's in the hands of the club."
Perhaps worryingly, the former Chelsea and Roma man also revealed his disappointment at not being named captain for the recent Champions League encounter with FC Midtjylland.

"Honestly, I was very disappointed. I was expecting to be the captain... but it's a manager's decision, so I accept it."
Manager Jurgen Klopp may not like hearing this, with Salah vital to his team's chance despite the undoubted talent of his squad.
Football fans also seem to realise this, especially after Salah was benched for Liverpool's trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
