- Match Analysis
Despite reaching the Champions League final this season, Real Madrid wants to bolster their squad during the summer transfer window after falling behind Barcelona in domestic terms. They already have been heavily linked with Robert Lewandowski, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane and Mauro Icardi.
Real are keen to sign Liverpool’s winger Salah this summer after his outstanding form this season. Since joining Liverpool from Roma for an initial fee of around £35 million last summer, the Egyptian has massively exceeded all expectations. He has been outstanding for the Reds, scoring 43 goals in all competitions this season.
The 25 year old is the hottest property in the Premier League right now and has established himself as one of the best players in the world right now. Liverpool are keen to keep their star beyond this season and are aware of La Liga giants interest on him. That’s why they have a put a price tag of €200 million on him to fend off interest.
This has put off Real as they are not willing to pay so much but are now planning to involve their two players in the deal. Real Madrid are hoping to lure Mohamed Salah away from Liverpool by offering Gareth Bale and Keylor Navas, according to Diario Gol.
Bale has been heavily linked with a move away after failing to get a regular run in the starting XI under Zinedine Zidane and the club are also willing to cash in on him to raise funds for new signings. Navas has also been linked with a exit as he is 31 and Real wants someone to replace him on a long term basis.
The Champions League holders hope that by including both the Wales star and the Costa Rica goalkeeper, they can get the price down and still land their man.
