Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has made it clear to his club’s president Florentino Perez that he would rather the twelve time European Champions sign Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah instead of Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard this summer.
Los Blancos are expected to be busy when the transfer window opens, as they plan to offload several first-team players and replace them with big money signings.
Despite it being reported yesterday that Perez does not consider Salah to be the type of Galactico signing he wants, and would rather sign Hazard, it seems the club’s record goal scorer Ronaldo sees things differently.
As per reports in Don Balon the Portuguese superstar has told the Real hierarchy that a move for Belgium international Hazard will stunt the growth of Marco Asensio.
Ronaldo would rather see Mohamed Salah, who has netted a sensational 36 goals this term for Liverpool, signed as a replacement for the expected to depart Gareth Bale.
The five time Balon d’Or winner has been in irresistible goal scoring form as of late, and few would bet against him inspiring Real to yet another Champions League title this season.
Although it remains unclear whether the Spanish giants will sign Hazard or Salah or maybe even another of Europe’s top attacking talents, but what is clear is that whoever does move to the Bernabeu will be playing second fiddle to the effervescent Ronaldo for a few seasons yet.
