Laurens’ podcast co-host Gabriele Marcotti believes Liverpool may not be completely against the idea of selling Salah. But he does not expect any contact from Real before this weekend’s Champions League final.
Marcotti said: “So Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, for obvious reasons, I think it’s inevitable that their names are going to come up because they haven’t extended [their contracts]. I think if you’re Real Madrid you want to keep this quiet, you don’t even go there, because obviously you’re playing Liverpool in the Champions League final.
“After the final, if I’m Salah’s agent, you say ‘hey, I haven’t signed the contract with Liverpool yet, I want to stay’ but you’re entitled to do that, that’s now negotiations work. If you’re Liverpool, maybe you’re not even so averse if you can get a decent fee in for him, rather than losing him for potentially a free in a year’s time.”
