Salah speaks on leaving Liverpool for Real Madrid

Salah speaks on leaving Liverpool for Real Madrid

Salah has 21 goals in the Premier League alone this season and having already broken numerous goalscoring records already, the Egyptian is on course to set a club record for most goals scored in a single league season.

His stunning form has led to speculations that the LaLiga champions would make a move for the Egypt global.

Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho sat down for an exclusive interview with Spanish media outlet Marca, and opened up on the real reason why he swapped Anfield for the Camp Nou.

When investigated he modestly indicated that he is exclusively aiming on his game with Liverpool right now and he can not say much about the transfer because right now he is just contented and happy to be here and will be here until the end of the season.

Still, for now at least, Salah doesn't appear for angling for a move elsewhere. "At the moment I am here", he said. "I want to focus on my team, and to end the season very well".

"Suso and I often speak to his mother about football".

"Right now I am a Liverpool player, I want to focus on that and end the season well, I love the English league and the type of football played". I really want to win big titles, it was one of the reasons that made me sign for the club.

"Now I want to be in a good position in the Premier League and help my global team to pass the first phase in the World Cup in Russian Federation. These are my objectives for now, then we will see".

Salah was nicknamed the Egyptian Messi by the Italian media during his time in Serie A because of his technical skills, pace and his direct style of play.

It makes his £37m move from Roma in the summer look an absolute bargain, and with the transfer market as it is now Liverpool will be looking to quadruple that fee if they ever chose to sell.

The height of Salah's ambition is shown when asked if he has thought of winning the Ballon d'Or. Nagrig are my people, you know?

Salah said that he was missing the "incredible" Coutinho, who in January moved to Barca in a €160m deal.

And the Egypt winger, proud to have been on the same team with him, admitted that he misses his friend.

The Egypt worldwide has scored 28 goals in 34 games and announced himself on the world stage since signing from Roma for £36.9 million last June. He is a relaxed person.
