Proceeded whether presently is the perfect chance to sell Salah, James reacted: “Better believe it, tomorrow. I’d do it now. This isn’t about Mo Salah not being a decent player, his objective record justifies itself with real evidence.
“Comparative in insights to somebody like [Sergio] Aguero, where Pep Guardiola can take a gander at Man City and not need Aguero.
“I BELIEVE LIVERPOOL’S SMOOTHNESS IS UNDERMINED BY SALAH, DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE SCORES.”
WHO HAS SALAH BEEN CONNECTED WITH?
Salah started new theory over his future while conceding that he would be available to playing in Spain sooner or later in the midst of revealed interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“WHY NOT? NOBODY REALIZES WHAT WILL OCCUR LATER ON, SO… PERHAPS ONE DAY [I WILL PLAY IN SPAIN], YES.”
