Mohamed Salah is definitely the hottest player in the soccer market right now as many top teams are said to be after him right now after his top level performances for F.C. Liverpool in his very first year at the club.
The most recent rumor about him has it that the player’s representatives have been in contact with F.C. Barcelona officials over a possible transfer of the mercurial striker to the Nou Camp.
According to a Spanish publication AS, the Egyptian’s representatives have recently approached the F.C. Barcelona officials with regards to their client’s future plans.
It will be recalled that Mohamed Salah, only recently returned to the English Premier League after an earlier stint with Chelsea and was named the best player in the Premier League last season as well as winning the Golden Boot with his 32 goals.
Reports have it that there have been some secret meetings between the Blaugrana and the forward’s agents over the past week, and the objective has been to see if a possible move to the Camp Nou could happen.
However, it is also expected that the F.C. Liverpool will request more than €100 million (R1.5 billion) from the Spanish club should they want to land the African forward, which would likely be a stumbling block to any such deal.
F.C. Liverpool have reportedly got a suitable replacement in mind, in Lyon’s Nabil Fekir, should the Egypt international decide to leave the Merseyside.
In the meantime, Mohamed Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, has since denied the Spanish media house’s claims, stating that the story is false. Who is right and who is wrong in this matter? Time shall tell, of course.
