Phil Thompson: 'Mohamed Salah will be surprised by his Liverpool form'

"Losing Salah would be a much bigger loss than losing Coutinho".

"Do not get me wrong".

His latest exploits saw him score four goals in Liverpool's crushing 5-0 win over Watford last week, with Hornets boss Javi Gracia later comparing his individual brilliance and ability to undo a gameplan to that of Barcelona's Messi.

The winger will also be the hope of the Egyptian national team at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

After scoring four against Watford at the weekend, the Egyptian looks like he is still fired up and ready to score even more for his club.

Throw in the fact that he scores goals for fun, doesn't get injured often and is getting better with each passing week and you have a recipe that Real Madrid will struggle to resist.

Russia's old city of Kaliningrad already has one stadium. "You can expect to be assassinated. Because of this, London announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats.

But, amazingly, reports have emerged suggesting that Liverpool almost missed out on his signature last summer. The only option is to sit down with Salah's agent and pay him whatever the going rate is to stay at Liverpool for the next few years, with any pay rise that comes his way more than justified given his performances this season. "We wish you the best because you are the best", the club tweeted.

Ian Wright believes it will be hard for Mohamed Salah to turn down Real Madrid as he continues to star for Liverpool.

Although he has not had the same impact for Leverkusen in the Bundesliga as Salah has had for Liverpool, given what he has achieved at such a young age, there is no doubting that he still would have been a good signing for the English club.

"Salah has had a phenomenal season", the Australian told talkSPORT via Goal.com.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can says the door is wide open to where he wants to play next season.
