Craig Bellamy doesn’t believe FC Barcelona or Real Madrid will make a bid for Mohamed Salah unless the forward produced a second prolific season at Liverpool FC.

The Egypt international moved to the Anfield outfit in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window.

Salah hit the ground running with a goal on his debut in a 3-3 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road on the opening day of the campaign.

The African forward has gone on to score an incredible 28 times in 30 games in the Premier League this season.

Salah is four goals clear of his Tottenham rival Harry Kane in the goal-scoring charts with seven games to play.

The Egyptian forward has also netted eight times in nine games in the Champions League to help the Reds reach the quarter-final stage.

Former Liverpool FC forward Bellamy explained why he doesn’t expect FC Barcelona or Real Madrid to sign Salah this summer.

“If I was Real Madrid or Barcelona, I would want to see another year,” Bellamy told Sky Sports.

“If he does do it next, that’s the problem. They are the pinnacle of football. If those two clubs come in for you, you want to be part of that.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League last term to secure a return to the Champions League in Klopp’s first full season in charge at Anfield.

The Reds signed Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Southampton last summer.
