Liverpool star Mohamed Salah rejected a ‘good’ offer from Real Madrid back in 2018 to stay put at Anfield, as per former Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy.

In another reality, Salah could have been one of the galactico players at Real Madrid had he accepted a move back in 2018.

The Egyptian has transformed his game since joining Liverpool and is part of a front trio that boast some of the best numbers in European football.

In his time at Anfield, Salah has been linked with an exit from the club, with Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid the names to have popped up on different occasions.

And just two months before Real Madrid faced Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League final, Los Blancos sent out a good offer to try and persuade the 27-year-old to move to Spain.

 Former Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy reveals Salah told him about the move but decided to stay put because he was happy at Anfield.

“When I was working with Hector Cuper, we had a training camp in Switzerland [in March 2018],” Ramzy told OnTime Sports .

“I was talking to Salah and he told me that Real Madrid had sent him an offer.

“The offer was really good, but Salah discussed it with me and Mr Cuper, and he decided to stay with Liverpool because he was comfortable there.”

Real Madrid will still come knocking for the winger once again and it would be interesting to see his response if another offer does come in at this point.
