- Florentino Perez is ready to splash the cash on Mohammed Salah
- Real Madrid are believed to favour Liverpool in the deal to sign Dembele
- Liverpool will play Los Blancos in the Champions League final in Kiev
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is reportedly getting ready to initiate plans to sign Mohammed Salah and also deliver a sting to Barcelona.
According to Spanish media outlet, Don Balon, Perez is aware of Jurgen Klopp’s interest in Barca winger Ousmane Dembele.
And the former Dortmund coach understands he cannot stand in the way of Salah’s dream move and has therefore earmarked Dembele as the perfect replacement.
Don Balon claims Real will pay a huge amount for Salah that will grant Kloppp the financial power to secure the signature of the Frenchman.
The French winger moved to the Nou Camp last summer for £135.5m but has made just nine starts because of injury problems yet the Catalan club would still place a huge price tag on him.
The Spanish giants have made the Liverpool star their top target this summer after an eye-catching performance at Anfield this season.
Salah has scored 43 goals in 49 matches in all competition this season and has won the PFA Player of the Year award as he awaits Real in the Champions League final.
And the current defending European champions are looking to overhaul their squad with a number of changes expected in the summer.
The Galaticos have been able to continue their impeccable form at the continental stage but their domestic campaign has been a disappointment.
For most past of the season, Madrid have struggled to keep up with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid as they lie in third place in La Liga.
Real Madrid and Liverpool go face-to-face on May 26 in the Champions League in a classic final.
Los Blancos are chasing their third successive Champions League crown having won it back-to-back in the last two seasons.
The Spanish giants became the first team to successfully defend the prize since the new format of the competition was introduced in 1992/93 season.
The last team to win the European Cup three times in succession was Bayern Munich which was between 1974-76.
The last time Real lost in the final of an European competition was in 1981 and ironically it was Liverpool.
