Will Liverpool Sell Mohamed Salah this Summer?

Salah and his team-mate Sadio Mane have been linked with transfer moves this summer, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in both forwards.

Don Hutchison, who spent four years at Liverpool as a player, was asked who Liverpool should offload if they had to and launched into a scathing attack on Salah’s capability as a footballer. ‘I wouldn’t [accept £140m for Mane], I wouldn’t,’ he told ESPN.

‘They’re the same age but it’s Mo Salah that I watch every single week, and his numbers are astonishing don’t get me wrong and you can’t take that away from Mo Salah. ‘But when we were talking about the Champions League just before the Atletico Madrid game, you watch Mo Salah and the guy does genius things but he does the most basic things so bad it’s untrue.

‘He can’t pass a ball five yards, he seems to keep playing this ball where he tries to nutmeg everyone from whatever side he’s on, if he’s coming off the right flank onto his left, tries to play it to a striker through a body of players that’s never, ever on.

And you watch him and go: “Surely this has been coached, surely Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff have tried to coach Mo Salah”, and he does the basic things really badly. ‘Yet his numbers are frightening and he scores a ridiculous amount of goals in the Premier League and the Champions League.

‘So I would disagree, I think if you’re going to sell anyone and you had to sell one – don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t sell any if I was Jurgen Klopp – but if one was to go and you offered Mo Salah for someone like Jadon Sancho, I maybe would take that swap.’
