Mohamed Salah should reject a move to Real Madrid and try to attain legendary status at Liverpool, according to Mohamed Elneny.

Mohamed Salah has been a spearhead figure in Liverpool’s resurgence since his arrival at the club in 2017.

The 27-year-old finished his debut campaign in the Premier League with a record 32 goals to win the Golden Boot.

This term, the Egypt international has also impressed in the Red’s stunning title charge, scoring 15 goals and notching six assists.

Salah has gone on to receive plaudits from many and his brilliant performances have seen him linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

While that in itself could be attractive, compatriot Mohamed Elneny has urged him to snub any move and idolize himself at Liverpool.

“Salah and I are both playing for Egypt [but] he is more than a friend to me,” Elneny told beIN Sports via Evening Standard.

“He is playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world and sometimes change is not a good idea. So if I were him, I would continue with Liverpool.

“For example, [look at] Eden Hazard. He was the best player at Chelsea but at Madrid he still cannot adapt.”

“Of course, you cannot ask a player about why they choose Real Madrid, but changing teams is always risky.”

“For me, Salah has to stay at Liverpool and become a legend like [Steven] Gerrard. Maybe one day we can see him in the Turkish Super League.”
