Transfer Talk: Mo departures possible as Reds entertain Salah sale
Liverpool are prepared to let Mohamad Salah leave Anfield this summer in a shock move.
The Egyptian forward, 30, could follow Sadio Mane out the exit door if the Reds receive a suitable offer.
According to The Sun, Salah's five-year stay on Merseyside could come to an end if one of his suitors stump up £60million.
Liverpool sold Mane to Bayern Munich for £35m earlier this week to avoid losing him on a free next year when his contract ends.
And the same situation could develop with Salah, who has 12 months left on his current deal and is yet to sign a new one.
He has been locked in talks with the Reds for much of the past year over his demands for £400,000'a-week wages.
The report says Virgil van Dijk is the club’s top earner on a £240k per week, with Salah earning slightly less.
But Liverpool do not want to drastically alter their wage structure and are in a stronger position than before following the signings of Luis Diaz in January and Darwin Nunez earlier this month.
Real Madrid have long been linked with a move for the Egyptian and Carlo Ancelotti remains a huge fan of Salah.
He scored 31 times last term and has netted 156 goals in 254 games since joining from Roma for £34m in 2017.
