Liverpool are reportedly determined to stave off any interest from Real Madrid in £200million-rated Mohamed Salah.
Salah, 25, has taken football by storm in his debut season at Anfield after netting 43 times so far — including two in the 5-2 thumping of Roma on Tuesday.
And the Daily Mail report that the club is now set to review the PFA Player of the Year’s current £90,000-a-week contract, which has four years left to run, and make him their main man.
The Reds are desperate to build their team around Salah for years to come but Real could come in for the Egyptian international.
Zinedine Zidane has been impressed by the winger, whose value has soared from the initial £34million Liverpool paid for him last summer.
However, Reds chiefs are confident they can rebuff any offers from Real as they have a good working relationship with his agent Ramy Abbas.
Salah also does not have a buy-out clause, meaning Real would really have to spend big if they wanted the former Roma star.
The Mail also report that they want to get Salah’s striker partner Roberto Firmino to agree new terms.
Real could get a better look at Salah in the Champions League final, with both clubs in pole position to make the Kiev showpiece on May 26 following the Spaniards’ 2-1 win at Bayern Munich last night.
The Spanish giants are desperate to add to their squad after surrendering La Liga to Barcelona this season.
