Liverpool FC star Mohamed Salah is not currently a transfer target for Real Madrid ahead of the summer window, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

Salah has been in sensational form since signing for the Reds from AS Roma in the summer transfer window last year, netting 28 goals in the Premier League to help Liverpool FC up to third place in the table.

The Egypt international has placed himself firmly in the running to potentially win the PFA player of the year award this season following his brilliant displays for the Reds.

His top form has also prompted suggestions that the likes of Real Madrid could be set to make a move to try and sign him this summer.

However, Spanish football expert Balague has insisted that Real Madrid do not currently hold an interest in Salah ahead of the summer transfer window.

Balague told Sky Sports News: “Salah is a difficult one because Real Madrid have no mention of him as a candidate to be a Galactico

“You can think there is a market in Egypt and he is a star of the Premier League – he has a lot of things to go for him – but if they get Hazard they won’t need Salah.

“It seems like they wouldn’t put that much money into Salah.”

Meanwhile, Salah will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to Crystal Palace.

The Merseyside outfit are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification for the second season running under Klopp.
