According to talkSPORT, Real Madrid want to sign Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the summer, as a replacement for Gareth Bale.
The Egyptian has made a huge impact at Anfield, scoring 32 goals for the Merseysiders in all competitions since arriving from Roma in a £34 million deal last June.
That form has attracted attention across Europe, and Real are among the clubs interested, with the Spanish giants apparently ready to offload Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in the summer.
However, Liverpool have absolutely no interest in selling the 25-year old, and have told Real representatives that it would take a bid of around £142 million (€160 million) to prise the player away from them. That figures exceeds the sum that Barcelona paid for Philippe Coutinho in January, and is closer to the amount that Paris Saint-Germain will pay to finalise the signing of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco this summer.
