Real Madrid have valued Mohamed Salah and will try and sign him, while a Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal strike target could leave for just €7.5million this summer, all in the Euro papers.



Real Madrid are reportedly focusing their attention on a summer transfer for Mohamed Salah.

Diario Gol reports that Real are looking to offload Gareth Bale and they are increasingly warming to the idea of signing Liverpool forward Salah, rather than Eden Hazard or Harry Kane.

The report claims Real value Salah at €80million, a somewhat cheaper option than Kane, who has been value at £200million. They acknowledge that Liverpool will inflate the price if Real pursue the Egyptian striker, but they still think Salah represents a better option and will go higher than their valuation.

Cristiano Ronaldo has also reportedly sanctioned the transfer and Real will push ahead with trying to get Salah at the end of the season.

Salah, 25, only arrived at Anfield last summer, but he has blasted 32 goals after a phenomenal start back in the Premier League.
