His international boss Hector Cuper claimed earlier this month that Salah’s impressive displays have alerted Real Madrid and speculation has increased in recent weeks that they are planning a big-money swoop next summer. Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane recently heaped praise on Salah too describing him as a “great player”. Is that a sure fire sign a Real Madrid bid is imminent?
