Liverpool RW Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah has frequently been linked to Real Madrid. It’s honestly highly unlikely Liverpool sell the Egyptian international, because he is by far their most important player. He has been one of the best players in the Premier League again this year with 20 goals despite playing on a team that has been injury-plagued and somewhat dysfunctional.

We’ve seen Salah put up jaw-dropping scoring numbers for Liverpool in the past when everyone was firing on all cylinders. He has the quality to play for Real Madrid and is the second-best scoring winger who could conceivably join Los Blancos after Kylian Mbappe.

Plus, Salah has a sweet left foot of his own. And ideally, Real would sign an explosive, left-footed winger who can cut inside and offer that goal-scoring threat. You know, much like Gareth Bale did after his big jump from the Premier League, becoming the most expensive transfer to that point in history.

Salah has a great reputation among Madridistas, Sergio Ramos jokes aside. They respect Salah for his work ethic and quality in the final third. He has an eye for the spectacular, plenty of speed, and the ability to create chances of his own via pressing. Karim Benzema could benefit from that aspect of Salah’s game, too. And the idea that Salah is a selfish player, perpetuated by some uneducated members of the mass media, is absolute rubbish. He is a team player and would be a true Galactico.
