Salah move to PSG 'a real possibility' after Romano's Liverpool update - pundit
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah moving to Paris Saint-Germain “is a real possibility” if Kylian Mbappe joins Real Madrid this year.
That is the view of former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Salah’s contract situation at Anfield.
The 29-year-old’s deal with the Reds expires in 18 months.
Football Insider revealed last month (11 December) that Liverpool are increasingly confident of securing their star man down to a new agreement.
In an interview with Anfield Watch (2 January), Fabrizio Romano claimed PSG were considering a move for Salah prior to signing Lionel Messi.
Campbell expects PSG will reignite their interest in the Egypt captain if Mbappe leaves for Real Madrid.

“Salah could be top of the list,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs. “It’s a real possibility.
“The negotiations are taking too long at Liverpool. They are giving other teams an opportunity to zero in on him. They are opening the door. That needs to be sorted out as soon as possible.
“PSG will be interested in somebody who can score the amount Salah does, 100 per cent. Who wouldn’t be?
“PSG are going to need to replace Mbappe’s goals if he is to leave. There are not many in the world who could do that but Salah is certainly one of them.”
Salah has been the Premier League’s standout performer this season.
He has contributed 23 goals and nine assists in 26 appearances across all competitions.
