Liverpool must not sell Salah in the summer transfer window. Reports in Spain are constantly suggesting that Real Madrid want to sign him.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via Don Balon) claiming that the Los Blancos are prepared to offer Karim Benzema to Liverpool in order to lure Salah. Now, the name of Marco Asensio is in the lime light.
According to Diario Gol, Liverpool want 200 million euros in cash for the transfer of the former Roma star. On the other hand, if a major exchange deal is to be completed with Madrid then the Reds only want Asensio + 120 million euros in cash for Salah.
The Spanish source have mentioned that the British giants rate the young Spaniard at 80 million euros (£70million) and have warned that they will not accept any other player in the exchange deal for their Egyptian playmaker.
Asensio is one of the most talented young attackers around and he needs to play regular first team football. In the recently concluded league campaign, the 22-year-old attacker made 32 appearances but he could only start 19 times, scored 6 goals and provided 5 assists.
Overall, in 52 appearances this season (28 starts), so far, the former Mallorca playmaker has directly contributed in 17 goals in all competitions for the reigning European champions.
Capable of playing anywhere in the attack, Asensio has the talent to excel in the Premier League. He made his senior international debut last year and has already featured 10 times for Spain. In your opinion, should Liverpool really let Salah leave if Madrid agree to sell Asensio and pay 120 million euros to the Anfield club?
