Man Utd ‘monitoring’ Liverpool ace Mo Salah, claim shock reports in Spain

MANCHESTER UNITED are keeping tabs on Mo Salah's situation at Liverpool, according to shock reports in Spain.

The Egyptian refused to commit his future to Anfield when asked after Saturday's 2-0 Champions League final triumph over Tottenham.

That whipped Spanish press into a frenzy about a sensational summer switch to Real Madrid.

And according to AS, both United and Bayern Munich are also considering an audacious bid for the forward.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to add some firepower to his side and two-time Golden Boot winner Salah would guarantee goals.

But any move to Old Trafford seems highly unlikely considering the last transfer between the Premier League rivals was Phil Chisnall's swap to Anfield in 1964.

Real's pursuit of Salah, 26, seems more plausible, although the Spanish giants are on the verge of landing Eden Hazard for £115million from Chelsea.

Bayern, meanwhile, are in the market for a new winger after legends Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery left the club.

SALAH SALE?

It was reported last summer that Madrid would need to pay a staggering £175m to land Salah.

AS incredibly claimed in April that the former Roma ace wanted out of Liverpool after an alleged row with Jurgen Klopp.

Joe Gomez is confident Liverpool's team will NOT be split up this summer.

He said: "We are here together to stay and I think the boundaries are limitless.

“Who knows [what we can achieve]? We just have to keep grounded, stay focused and keep doing what we are doing and hopefully we can get some more.

“I think we believe that [we can]. The manager said we are a team together, staying this way, and that is the main thing.

“We have a foundation which will stay and only get stronger so all our belief in what we can do is at an all-time high.”
