Former Tottenham and Egypt striker Mido has claimed that Mohamed Salah could leave Liverpool for Real Madrid or Barcelona in the summer.
Salah has managed to win the Premier League Golden Boot last season after scoring 32 league goals in his first season at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah has created more chances (43) and provided more assists (7) than any other Liverpool player in the Premier League this season.

The Egypt international has 13 league goals as Liverpool sit top of the Premier League table so far this season.
But Mido, who is a football coach and television presenter, believes Salah will leave the Anfield if he scores more than 25 goals this season.
Mido told CNN: “You never know in football. If Barcelona or Real Madrid come for you your head is going to flip, all the players are like that.”
“Barcelona and Real Madrid are different – no disrespect to Liverpool.”
“I think Barcelona and Real Madrid were waiting to see how Salah would do this season, they don’t buy players after only one good or great season.”
“I think if Salah scores 25 plus goals, I think they will come for him and it will be difficult for Liverpool to keep him.”
Meanwhile, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has refused to discuss any transfer plans ahead of the Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s trip to City, Klopp said: “We don’t talk about transfers, and loans are transfers as well.”
“We will see what happens before January 31st. Nothing to say.”
Salah, 26, joined the Merseyside club in the summer of 2017 from Roma and has since gone on to score 60 goals in 79 appearances.
