Shock Rumour: Salah To Barca?

A shock report has suggested that new Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez wants to sign Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah, who has still not signed a new contract in England.

Report: Xavi Fines First Barca Star For Breaking Rules

According to Spanish publication El Nacional, the Egypt international has appeared at the top of Xavi's transfer shortlist in his bid to rebuild the LaLiga giants.

Salah is yet to commit his future to the Reds amid rumours he wants to be made one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old's current deal at Liverpool expires in 2023, with it being well-known that the Merseyside club does not traditionally hand big long-term deals to players nearing or in their thirties.

While it could be true that there is genuine interest in Salah from Barca, a move for him will likely depend on the Blaugrana's financial situation, with the club believed to be in a huge amount of debt.

The winger has flirted with the idea of playing in LaLiga in the past, having refused to rule out starring in the division earlier this year, telling Marca: "No one knows what's going to happen in the future, so maybe one day, yes."

Salah has been in incredible form for Jurgen Klopp's side so far this season, having contributed to an impressive 21 strikes in 15 matches across all competitions.

Although he could be restrained by Barcelona's economic troubles, Xavi appears to be desperate to get his boyhood club back to where he believes they belong.

Dani Alves, 38, became his first signing since being appointed by the struggling LaLiga giants, with the Brazilian set to officially begin his second spell at the Camp Nou in January after being registered.
