Although Manchester City are overstocked in the forward department with Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish and Ferran Torres at their disposal, but El Nacional believe there’s one player they’re ‘thinking of signing’ – Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
The 29-year-old has been in outstanding form this season and can lay claim to being the best in Europe right now. Salah has two years remaining on his deal at Anfield and has hit a stumbling block in negotiatons over a contract extension, so there’s a slim chance City could capitalise on the situation.
Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017 and he’s gone on to make 215 appearances in all competitions, scoring 140 goals with 52 assists. The Egyptian international, who boasts 43 goals in 71 games for his country, has 15 goals in 12 games for Liverpool this campaign and could set a new scoring record come May.
It’s easy to see why City would want Salah, but Liverpool aren’t going to let such an important player leave. The 29-year-old’s market value is £90m, but he’s worth much more to the Merseysiders. So while El Nacional say City and Barcelona are considering a move for Salah, it’s hard to see a deal ever getting over the line.
