Liverpool FC face £200m fight to keep Mo Salah this summer

If I was in Salah's position now and Real Madrid came in with a big-money offer to take me out of Liverpool, I would ignore them because my dream was always to wear the red shirt at Anfield, but that kind of loyalty has long since been stripped from the game.

And an impressive World Cup with the reigning champions in Russian Federation would have driven up his value even more, guaranteeing him a hefty signing-on fee at his next club.

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp is not anxious about the saga rumbling on as long as the player is focused on Liverpool until the end of the campaign.

"I'm doing great in England. Also La Liga is very attractive, as well as Serie A, which has grown in recent years, or Ligue 1, which has become one of the most important leagues in Europe". The same applies to Germany, where tactics are concerned, and Italian club football has recently caught up.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been touted as possible destinations in recent days, meanwhile, with the 24-year-old nearly certain to be available to purchase on a free in a little over two months' time. Therefore, I do not want to exclude anything because I do not know what I will do from the summer.

Any enquiries for Salah, who has scored 36 goals and is a contender to win the PFA Player of the Year award, will be dealt with firmly and emphatically.

Georginio Wijnaldum talks to ESPN's Mark Ogden about Liverpool's front three, the team ethic behind their success and who he thinks will win the PFA player of the year.

With only seven league games left in their season, Liverpool now sit third in the Premier League and also face the exciting prospect of facing fellow Premier League side Manchester City in the Champions League quarter finals. I'm pretty sure of myself saying that my qualities will be enough to play in a very large club starting next summer.
