Real Madrid are not interested in a move for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, despite the forward attempting to smooth over relations with the club.
That’s according to Bernabeu Digital, who also rule out a potential move to Barcelona for the Egyptian.
Salah opened the door to a move away from Liverpool last month when he granted a surprise interview to Spanish newspaper AS.
In it, he openly hinted he would be open to moving to Spain and playing for the likes of Madrid, who have been credited with an interest in the past.
The interview was seen as something of a smoothing of relations between Salah and the Spanish giants, with their relationship having been tense following the incident with Sergio Ramos in the 2018 Champions League final.
Bernabeu Digital back that up today, saying that the interview ‘closed the debate’ about what happened with Ramos, something Madrid fans had rallied against.
His comments about the club were an attempt to ‘smooth things over’ and ‘get closer’ to the club, with his environment hoping it would lead to ‘a wink’ from those in charge.
However, that hasn’t happened as Real Madrid ‘do not value’ a move for the Liverpool star at this moment in time.
While it’s true they were keen a few seasons ago that has now changed, and they are putting all their trust in Eden Hazard, despite his poor first season at the club.
A move to Barcelona is also seemingly out of reach as they don’t have the ‘sufficient economic cushion’ to make it happen and would have to sell.
Their impending elections also make it difficult to predict if they even want Salah.
The Liverpool man, for his part, will ‘continue to cry out’ for a move if it doesn’t happen as he ‘does not feel loved’ at Anfield.
He desperately wants the move to Madrid with the chance of playing for the Spanish giants described as ‘very seductive’.
He and his agents ‘expect a move’ from them to make a transfer happen, but at the moment, Madrid aren’t interested in granting him his wish.
