Liverpool target £215m PSG ace Kylian Mbappe as Real Madrid eye Mohamed Salah transfer

Mohamed Salah could head to Real Madrid if Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp lands Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool are set to step up their transfer pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe in a move which could see Mohamed Salah head to Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The Reds are said to have made Mbappe a top transfer target as they look to become the best team in world football, with reports linking them to a sensational £215million (€250m) deal.

El Desmarque have reported that although Zinedine Zidane is desperate to bring Mbappe to Spain after seeing him impress in Ligue 1 for both Monaco and PSG, Liverpool will provide stern opposition.

The report suggests that Klopp’s bosses could offer the astronomical fee to fend off interest from the European giants, with Salah now named as an alternative for Real.

The report goes on to suggest that Liverpool could offer the 20-year-old, who is apparently keen to leave France to reach his peak, wages of more than £34m (€40m) a year, which would better Lionel Messi’s pay packet at Barcelona.

That move would lead to one of the current trio of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane being benched, and the Egyptian has been linked with a move to Real due to his supposedly ‘bad’ relationship with Klopp.

Zidane is under pressure already at the Bernabeu having rejoined the club in March, but is still likely to be backed in the transfer market.

Real president Florentino Perez is said to be 'attentive' of Salah's situation and could strike if Liverpool manage to land Mbappe, who hinted before the current season that he wanted a find a new challenge, despite his club having no intention of selling up.

"I think I'm reaching the first or second turning point in my career," he said in May.

"Maybe it's time to have more responsibility, which could be at PSG with great pleasure or maybe somewhere else with a new project.

"This was my fourth season in this league and I've had a lot of exciting experiences. First, I was with Monaco and we managed to win the title and then I joined a totally different project in Paris where I've managed to adapt from the first year.

"There have been some disappointments, but that's part of football and we managed to solve things in order to win the title."

The striker has won two league titles with the Parisians after helping Monaco to the top back in 2017, and has now scored 79 goals in 104 Ligue 1 outings.

PSG sporting director Leonardo was even forced to hit back at the player being regular linked to Real after the win over Club Brugge this week, and warned them to stay away.

"It's annoying," he said of Zidane's claim that a move will be up to the player himself.

"This isn't the time to speak about dreams and all of that. It has to stop. Mbappe is very important for us and this isn't the moment to destabilise him."
