Mohamed Salah did not discuss a potential move to Real Madrid in 2018 with one of his former coaches, according to the Liverpool forward’s agent.
Hani Ramzy, Egypt’s former assistant, claimed Salah had received an offer to leave Liverpool for Real Madrid but after discussing it with him decided to turn it down.
“When I was working with Hector Cuper, we had a training camp in Switzerland [March 2018],” Ramzy told OnTime 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.”
However, his representative Ramy Abbas says that the conversation between Salah and Ramzy never took place.
“Mohamed never discussed any career plans with any ex coach,” Abbas said on Twitter.
Salah has scored 91 goals in 144 appearances for Liverpool, winning the Champions League in 2019.
