Salah refused to start negotiations with Madrid and noted that he felt happy in Liverpool. His future was entirely linked to the Merseysiders.
“In March 2018, when I was working at the coaching staff of the Egyptian national team coach, Hector Cuper, I had a close relationship with Salah, and he shared a lot of information with me.
As he told me, the desire to add him was expressed by Barcelona and Real Madrid. The “Royal Club” contacted the player and his agent and introduced him to an outstanding offer.
Any player dreams of playing for a team like Real Madrid. But Mohamed Salah felt happy at Liverpool. That’s why he informed the Spaniards that he was not going to start negotiations and refused to do all this, “Ramzy said.
Salah was forced to leave the field.
On 26 May 2018, Real Madrid and Liverpool faced each other in the Champions League final. In the early stages of the match, Klopp’s team looked much better. But after a fight with Sergio Ramos, Salah suffered an injury and was forced to leave the field. After that, Zidane’s troops defeated the opponent 3-1. Benzema, Bale, and Mane scored the goals.
Many of the fans think that Sergio Ramos deliberately suffered an injury to Salah, as he was causing a lot of problems for Madrid and that if Klopp had not lost to the Egyptian, he would have had a great chance to win the final. Eventually, Mohamed Salah remained loyal to the Reds and still managed to win the tournament in 2019.
