Liverpool star Salah claims he could make Spain move amid ongoing Real Madrid links

Mohamed Salah has left the door open to a possible move to Spain by suggesting that he would like to play in La Liga in the future.

The Liverpool star has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and has previously hinted at a possible switch to Spain in an interview with AS back in December 2020.

With the Reds having a disappointing domestic campaign in 2020-21, the rumours of a possible Salah exit are unlikely to go away and he has again commented on his future to the Spanish press, refusing to rule out leaving the Premier League champions.

What has been said?

Salah spoke to Marca ahead of Liverpool's Champions League clash with Zinedine Zidane's side and answered questions related to his future with the Reds.

"It's not up to me [whether I stay]," Salah said. "We'll see what happens but I prefer not to talk about that now.

"[My relationship with Klopp] is a normal relationship between two professionals. That's how I'd describe it."

Asked whether he would like to try Spanish football, having played in England and Italy, the Egyptian added: "I hope to be able to play for many more years.

"Why not? No one knows what's going to happen in the future, so... maybe one day [I will play in in Spain], yes."

On Zidane, the 28-year-old spoke in glowing terms and said: "He's a great coach. He's won three Champions Leagues. He's doing a very good job with the team. He left and he came back to help the team win trophies again. He was one of my idols when I was little. He's doing great as a coach."
