Mo Salah and Jürgen Klopp have reportedly fallen out

Salah’s agent was quick to deny a similar rumour last week

Not for the first time in recent weeks, a report has suggested Mo Salah’s relationship with Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has broken down.

As some of you may recall, similar claims were recently made by Madrid-based newspaper, AS, only to be swiftly shot down in a tweet by Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas Issa.

This time, as pointed out by the IndependentTelefoot journalist Frédéric Calenge has reiterated claims the pair’s relationship is strained – so much so that the Egyptian may even seek to leave Anfield during the summer.

Real Madrid, who are set to be plotting a major overhaul of their squad in time for next season, are said to be interested in taking the 26-year-old to the Bernabeu.

Despite such speculation, Salah continues to play a major role for Klopp in Liverpool’s title charge. Having scored a memorable long-range strike against Chelsea last weekend, he won his side a late penalty which James Milner converted to make sure of another three crucial points against Cardiff on Easter Sunday.

He was also on target in midweek as Liverpool breezed past FC Porto to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the the second season in succession.

Considering his form over the last two seasons, the idea of him being allowed to leave Merseyside seems remote.
