Roma chief Monchi insists Liverpool lucky to sign Salah before Neymar blew up market

AS Roma chief Monchi has spoken of selling Mohamed Salah to Liverpool last summer.

Monchi insists they were in a situation where they had to accept Liverpool's offer.

He said: "Regrets? At that time we needed it, it was a very important offer, then the numbers of (Kylian) Mbappé and Neymar blew up the market.

"This sale was necessary for us, now the price would have been even higher.

"When I arrived there was already an offer from Liverpool and the player had already given the OK for the transfer."
