Ed1 not liverpool related at all but why does everyone think neymar will join real madrid? is he of serious interest to them andi assume that's why PSG have bought Mbappe also as i guess he will be neymars replacement if he does go?

Lol but they got Mbappe in the same window. Why buy him at all if they bought his replacement at the same time?

Maybe PSG knew Neymar would never hang around long enough, hence the Mbappe signing. let's be honest, Neymar will go to Real this summer or the next, hence why I am confident Real won't sign Salah. Real's first choice is Neymar to replace Ronaldo and they are looking to Icardi or Griezmann as their new No.9 which is close to 300 million euros worth of talent alone. They won't have another 150 million kept aside for a luxury signing like Salah. Also, Perez is a big Hazard fan so he might go to Real as well this summer.

Salah is going nowhere in the summer. Not after only 1 year. He has scored goals so of course there will be rumours. Surely Real would go for kane before salah, kane has proven he can do it year in year out. I keep expecting the salah bubble to burst. He is pure class though and I wouldn't swap more for anyone.

Moves for Kane, Hazard or Neymar will all have to fail before they come for Salah in my opinion. Not to mention that they need to find suitors for Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema despite them all being on wages they don't remotely justify. Maybe Ronaldo does based on the exposure he brings globally, but he's not worth the wages he demands on the pitch anymore. I can't see them selling the other two easily. Certainly not both early enough in the summer to make two big moves for a Galactico replacements! Transfer sagas for big players get drawn out until the wire and Premier League clubs will be turning off the fax machines much earlier than normal so Kane, Hazard and Salah may be unattainable. No way will they get all 3.

Madrid will have an idea of how they want this summer to go, and I personally just can't see everything falling in to place for them in one summer window. Salah recently said he wants to win trophies here and was a boyhood red, and although that is definitely just lip service, it does suggest we shouldn't struggle to convince him to give us at the very least 1 more year.

I must stress this is just my opinion though and i have no, nor do I claim to have any, inside knowledge about any of these clubs or players! I'm just speculating like everyone else.

While Salah has been saying he wants to win trophies and is a boyhood fan he has had he agent sounding out Madrid, so it is indeed lip service. I think it will be more of a case of Liverpool putting the "not for sale" sign up to keep him 1 more year and less of trying to covince him to stay. If he got the chance to join Madrid this Summer then he would be gone in my opinion, boyhood fan or not.
