Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane’s transfer ambitions have taken a toll after their primary target has decided in favour of a move to Barcelona.

Zinedine Zidane has always been a big fan of Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and has had ambitions of bringing him to Real Madrid. The Frenchman’s admiration has been backed by Madrid President Florentino Perez who does support Zidane’s idea of signing the Egypt international for the 13-time European champions.

Los Merengues are looking for better attacking prowess and Mohamed Salah would have definitely been a great addition to the Whites, but it has been claimed by Diario GOL that the former Roma winger prefers moving to Barcelona- who are also interested in him- over Real Madrid, a side that has undergone a horrible season.

The Catalans are heading for a treble and looking to knock Liverpool out in the process of winning the UEFA Champions League. However, their attacking options have not been very bright and only Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have been providing sparks consistently on the goal scoring front. Rather, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele have been abysmally poor.

The Brazilian and French forwards have struggled to settle into Barcelona and have not been fan favourites. Both of them have been linked with exits to various European destinations, but it seems like only one of them would be heading out- and all signs point toward Philippe Coutinho leaving for the time being.

Mohamed Salah has been recommended to Barcelona by Lionel Messi and even the Egyptian believes that forming an attacking trident beside Luis Suarez and the Argentinian forward would benefit him. Salah is currently out with a head injury, but is in contention to be the Premier League’s top goal scorer for a second season on the trot.
