Egpyt FA president Abdo Rida claims that Real Madrid will approach Liverpool this summer to sign Mohamed Salah after his stunning form this season.

Salah, an Egypt global, has made a sensational start to life at Anfield having only arrived from Roma for £36.9m last summer.

The former Zamalek player was part of the Pharaohs squad that secured Egypt's qualification to the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

"I have been told in confidence that Real Madrid are interested in Salah, but we aren't going to get worked up about it", Cuper said.

That's according to Egyptian FA president Hany Abo Rida.

The long and narrow dinosaur skull is similar to a Velociraptor's , a shape that is unique among other bird-like dinosaurs. According to the scientists, the feathers of Caihong had pancake-shaped melanosomes akin to those of modern hummingbirds.

The 25-year-old, who has recently joined the new Major League Soccer club on a season-long loan from Swiss side Basel, expressed his respect for Liverpool winger and Egypt national team teammate Salah, saying he's "a great player and person".

Elsewhere, Bayer Leverkusen are preparing to fend off bids for Leon Bailey, who is believed to attracted interest from Liverpool and Manchester United. "I don't talk too much about other players, but he is a player I rate a lot".

"There is a real possibility he will play for Real Madrid next season", Rida said, as quoted by Estadio Deportivo.

Liverpool fans will naturally be insecure about players leaving for big clubs in Spain even when they seem happy and are professing their contentedness with their lot on Merseyside.
