Salah’s compatriot says star is ready to jump to the next level at Real Madrid

Former Tottenham striker Mido claims countryman Mo Salah is ready to ‘jump to the next level’ and join Real Madrid.

The record-breaking Egyptian has netted 40-goals in all competitions this season and Liverpool will be doing all they can to keep hold of their starman.

Salah became just the eighth striker to hit the 30-goal mark in a Premier League campaign, and the eighth different forward to achieve that feat for the Anfield giants in their entire 126-year existence.

And Mido, who had stints in England with Spurs, Middlesbrough, Wigan and West Ham, claims Madrid would be the perfect fit for the 25-year-old.

"Real Madrid want him, and we have all seen the poor performances of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema with the 4-4-2," Mido told King Fut .

"I was afraid that Salah might fail at Liverpool, but I think he is ready to jump to the next level. Real Madrid would be able to use his strengths.

"I know many people will disagree with this, but in my opinion, Mohamed Salah is the best player in the history of Egyptian football.

"Salah’s mentality is much better than mine. When I was young I did not get any advice, and this would come to hurt me later on.

"We could see how strong he was mentally with the way he handled himself when he didn’t play at Chelsea."

Despite all the accolades this season, Salah says he’d trade all of his goals to win the Champions League.

“I have no doubt the Champions League." he added. "If you had a choice between the Champions League and (honours like the Golden Boot) then of course the Champions League.”

Liverpool play Salah’s former side Roma in the semi-finals with a spot in the Kiev showpiece against Real Madrid or Bayern up for grabs.
