Barcelona eye Salah as potential ‘alternative’ to Haaland

Barcelona are said to be considering a move for Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah as an ‘alternative’ to Erling Haaland.

Barcelona are planning ahead to the summer transfer window as the Spanish sides seek a marquee arrival, with Haaland set to be subject of interest from several leading clubs across Europe.


Manchester City and Real Madrid remain the frontrunners to secure the Borussia Dortmund forward and Barcelona are now considering alternatives, including Salah.

Salah will have just a year remaining on his contract this summer and has so far failed to reach an agreement with Liverpool over an extension, despite a public desire from both sides to agree terms on a new deal.

Sport are reporting that Barcelona are monitoring developments ahead of a potential move, with Salah a signing that could help relaunch the clubs’ project and provide a direct replacement for the out-of-contract Ousmane Dembele.

Salah is understood to be seeking a contract that moves the Egyptian in line with the Premier League’s leading earners, but Liverpool have so far been reluctant to move outside their wage structure.

Robert Lewandowski is also on Barcelona’s radar ahead of the summer window, with speculation continuing to link the forward with a new challenge after eight seasons at Bayern Munich.
