The Spanish newspaper Sport reported that Barcelona had refused to revisit the idea of signing the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool star, because of his agreement with the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, the Bayern Munich star.
Salah’s contract with Liverpool expires in the summer of 2023 and the Egyptian player has turned down all offers he has received from the English club.
British newspaper The Sun broke a large-scale surprise on Friday by saying that Liverpool were ready to sell Salah in this summer’s Mercato for £60m, noting that the move tempted Real Madrid to look into the deal.
And the Sport newspaper confirmed that: “The Catalan club has been in contact with Salah’s representatives in recent months and has recently received information that the Egyptian player has become available on the current Mercato.”
And a Spanish newspaper pointed out that Barcelona had rejected the idea of returning to a deal with Salah “because of his agreement with Pole Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich star”.
Mohamed Salah, 30, is asking for £400,000-450,000 a week to sign a new contract with the Reds.
