laliga targets?

The pair have enjoyed a phenomenal season with 53 goals scored between them in all competitions

Graeme Souness believes Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah could have their heads turned if Real Madrid or Barcelona try to sign them.

The pair have been unstoppable for Liverpool this season as they shared the Premier League Golden Boot, along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

They were also instrumental in Jurgen Klopp’s attacking front three as they claimed the Champions League trophy.

Salah scored 27 goals last season, including a penalty in the final against Tottenham, while Mane hit the net 26 times.


It would not be surprising if teams try and tempt them away from Anfield in the summer with both Madrid and Barcelona looking to make changes.

Souness fears that one, or both, of them could be targeted during the transfer window.

The Reds have previously seen star players Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho sold to Barcelona in recent years.

“Real Madrid and Barcelona will be sniffing round Salah and Mane and I think one of them will be targeted this summer,” Souness told Independent.ie.

“Both of those clubs are in the process of rebuilding and they tend to tempt any player when they go after them.

“We saw that in the past with Luiz Suarez and Philippe Coutinho and even though they enjoyed playing for Liverpool, their heads were turned when Barcelona wanted them. That will happen again now with Salah and Mane.”
