Real Madrid approached Mohamed Salah about a move to the Spanish club this summer, according to reports in the French media.

French outlet El Pais, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Real Madrid contacted Salah’s representatives this summer to sound out the possibility of the Liverpool FC attacker moving to the club to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Salah signed a new long-term contract with the Reds earlier this summer to underline his commitment to the Anfield club.

Salah was one of European football’s top performers last season as he scored 44 goals in all competitions to help Liverpool FC finish fourth in the Premier League and reach the Champions League final.

The same report says that Real Madrid are desperate to try and replace Ronaldo this summer after his move to Juventus, and that both Harry Kane and Eden Hazard are potential targets for the Spanish giants.

Liverpool FC fans will be hoping to see Salah recreate his brilliant form next season as the Reds look to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next term.

The Reds are still aiming to win their first trophy since Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at the club back in October 2015.
