Salah Tipped To Snub Real

African superstar Mohamed Salah has been tipped to stay with Liverpool as Real Madrid and FC Barcelona do not have the same appeal they once had, according to a former Los Blancos star.

Salah has been linked with the Spanish giants ever since his impressive debut season for the Reds, during which he bagged 44 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions.

The Egypt international continues to impress for Merseysiders, who are on the verge claiming their first league title in 30 years.

Amid speculation Salah could consider a move to one of the Spanish giants, former Liverpool and Los Blancos midfielder Steve McManaman feels the African superstar should stay in England, where "the best sides are".

"I see his future at Liverpool to be honest," McManaman said in his latest column for HorseRacing.net.

"Regarding this whole aura about Real Madrid and Barcelona, I think players are consistently linked with them because they were both considered the best sides in the world back in the day. The best sides are now in the Premier League.

"Four or five years ago, everybody was saying 'Real Madrid, Real Madrid, Real Madrid' because they were winning things, and they and Barcelona were winning the Champions League every other year.

"The best teams in Europe now are in England, so I don't understand the premise of why you need to go to LaLiga at the minute."
