Mo Salah’s agent might have been at the Santiago Bernabeu, might have met with Florentino Perez, and might have discussed the Liverpool star joining Real Madrid, according to speculative reports from Spain.
Don Balon quotes Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre as saying that Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas Issa had a meeting at Real Madrid. Aguirre was clear about the fact that he was not saying Salah would sign for Los Blancos, though.
A similar rumour was reported by renowned Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio last week, but there has been no apparent progress towards any deal for the African player of the year. Furthermore, Salah tweeted a response insisting that the rumours were false and that he would not be passing further comment.
Nonetheless, never let the complete lack of any substance to a story get in the way of a good transfer rumour. And indeed, never let it get in the way of a social media meltdown!
Twitter, do your thing:
Salah goes to Madrid and I am done with this sport. Finito.

The Don Balon article also quotes another journalist, Diego Plaza, as saying that Salah would be unlikely to go for less than £70m.
