Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah rejected an offer from Spanish football heavyweights, Real Madrid in 2018.
This is according to former Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy, who explained that Salah was keen to stay with English giants Liverpool FC.
Salah was heavily linked with Real and Spanish rivals, FC Barcelona after breaking goalscoring records in the English Premier League during the 2017/18 season.
Ramzy stated that the Whites made a “really good” offer to sign Salah, but the left-footed attacker decided to stay put at the Merseyside-based side.
“When I was working with Hector Cuper, we had a training camp in Switzerland [in March 2018],” Ramzy told On Time Sports.
“I was talking to Salah and he told me that Real Madrid had sent him an offer.
“The offer was really good, but Salah discussed it with me and Mr Cuper, and he decided to stay with Liverpool because he was comfortable there.”
Salah broke the Premier League scoring record for a 38-game season and subsequently receiving the league’s Golden Boot after netting 32 goals in 36 league games in 2018.
His performances earned him a number of individual accolades, including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and he also came third in the 2018 Best FIFA Men’s Player award.
