Ex-Real Madrid president Calderon: No money to buy Liverpool striker Salah

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon insists Liverpool shouldn't be concerned about losing Mohamed Salah to the Spanish giants.

Calderon, who was president between 2006-09, thinks the Spanish lockdown-hit finances at Real will mean they are unable to prise the Egyptian from Anfield.

Calderon told ON Time Sports: "He is a great player and a goalscorer. He helped Liverpool by giving his best, but I don't think they will let him go.

"It is expected that, if they were to think about it, they would only let him go for a lot of money.

"Salah is wanted, of course, by Real Madrid, but Liverpool would ask for a lot of money and, if that deal were to be completed, it would be crucial.

"Salah is a great player with fantastic potential, and any club wishes to acquire such talents, but for Real Madrid I do not think they have the financial means to sign Salah."
