Mohamed Salah was compared to Lionel Messi after his four-goal salvo against Watford, and now the Telegraph reports that Liverpool “will not sell him this summer under any circumstances.”
Salah’s spectacular form, which has seen him net 36 goals for the Merseysiders so far, has led to speculation that Barcelona or Real Madrid will soon come calling.
The Telegraph however writes that the Egypt international “is central to Liverpool’s pursuit of honours” and the club will “stand firm and rebuff any approaches” after losing Philippe Coutinho to Barca in January.
It adds that the situation at Anfield is strong enough, with the club in the Champions League quarterfinals, to mean that they are again becoming “an ultimate destination for players rather than a stepping-stone club.”
Salah has four years remaining on the contract he signed when he arrived in the summer and the Telegraph suggests that “few clubs in the world are capable of getting close to affording what he is now worth.”
The “Egyptian Messi” is in his finest form that makes him one of the favorites for next world player of the year award.
