Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has sent shock waves at the club after refusing to rule out future moves to Real Madrid or Barcelona.
The 28-year-old Egyptian has become a star at Anfield under Jürgen Klopp and scored 108 goals in 172 games for the club on the way to winning the Champions League and Premier League titles.
Because of these successes, he was connected to the Spanish giants, but was asked by the Spanish Outlet AS whether he would rule out a move to LaLiga in the future. However, the former Chelsea striker failed.

“I think Madrid and Barcelona are two top clubs,” he said.
“Who knows what will happen in the future, but now I’m focusing on winning the Premier League and Champions League again with Liverpool.”
As Salah continued to press for his future, he insisted that everything was in Liverpool’s hands, adding: “It’s a tough question but for now I can say that everything is in the club’s hands.

“Of course I want to break records here and I repeat all club records, but everything is in the hands of the club.”
Salah has scored the highest 11 Premier League goals for the current top champions and 14 in all competitions in 2020-21.
These latest stats come after Salah, who signed an extended five-year extension with Anfield’s side in 2018, finished fifth in Liverpool’s victorious league campaign last season with 19 goals in the Golden Boot race.
The Egypt international also admitted that he was very disappointed not to have received the armband for the final Champions League group match against Midtjylland earlier this month.

Salah scored the first goal in Denmark but Trent Alexander-Arnold (right) was the captain
Klopp showed a rather inexperienced team in the 1-1 draw in Denmark. The Reds had already qualified for the final 16 of the competition, but Salah was one of the few regulars to have been there from the start.
The Egyptian opened the gate in the first minute but did so in a team led by 22-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold. A decision that Salah admitted should now be accepted.
“To be honest, I was very disappointed,” he added.
“I was hoping to be the captain, but it’s a coach’s decision. I accept.’
Salah scored against Tottenham in beating Jose Mourinho’s men, who are second
Liverpool are currently at the top to secure their second consecutive Premier League title.
Their lead over second place Tottenham is currently three points after 13 games after a 2-1 win against Jose Mourinho’s men in the middle of the week.
But Salah, whose team will face Crystal Palace on Saturday at 12:30 p.m., was keen to say that there is still too much season left to re-brand his team favorites for the crown.
“I think it’s a little early to say that [Liverpool are title favourites]but yeah, we do it as well as other teams. I hope we have the best chance of winning. ‘
