Real Madrid to ditch Eden Hazard to pursue world-record Mohamed Salah move.
Real Madrid are ready to abandon their pursuit of Eden Hazard and focus on a world-record £200million transfer of Mohamed Salah.
The Spanish giants have been stunned by the Egypt international’s form in the 2017/18 season, which has seen him compared to Lionel Messi, and they are ready to smash Neymar’s £198m transfer record in order to sign him.
However, they are not alone in the chase for the Liverpool forward, with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain all preparing offers, according to the Sun.
After losing Philippe Coutinho for £145m in the January transfer window, Liverpool will be reluctant to let Salah leave anytime soon.
But Real Madrid bosses are convinced that the club’s owners would Fenway Sports Group would not be able to resist a fee of £200m or higher.
The 25-year-old cost Liverpool just £34.3m from Roma last summer, but his 28-goal Premier League tally has seen his value skyrocket. Should the Reds sell up, it’s good news for Chelsea as Real will cool their interest in prized asset Hazard.
