Barcelona ‘turned down’ transfer for Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah for just £35m

Mohamaed Salah is thought to be one of many best strikers in Liverpool historical past, however issues might have turned out very differently indeed had Barcelona taken up an invite to sign the Egyptian

Barcelona reportedly turned down the prospect to sign Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah when he was obtainable for simply £35million.

Salah, 29, is thought to be one of the world’s most finest centre-forwards because of his exploits on Merseyside.

Since becoming a member of Liverpool, the Egyptian legend has scored 130 goals in 209 appearances, serving to Jurgen Klopp’s side to win the Champions League and their first Premier League title in 20 years.

However issues might have turned out very in a different way certainly if stories in Spain are to be believed.

In accordance with El Nacional, Barcelona turned down the prospect to sign Salah when he was at Roma, allowing Liverpool to swoop in.
The report claims Salah was provided to the Catalan giants for a cut price basement charge of £35m, as Roma’s sporting director Monchi ‘wished to get rid’ of him.
Ex-Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu is alleged to have rejected the offer, and the La Liga giants splashed out on £135m on Borussia Dortmund flop Ousmane Dembele as an alternative.
That fee represents a big chunk of the cash Barcelona obtained from Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar, and goes some way to explaining the monetary gap the club are in now.
