Barcelona remain focus on luring Mohammed Salah to Camp Nou ahead of the upcoming season due to his blistering and exceptional goalscoring abilities in the previous season.
Though the Catalans are one of the forces to reckon with in European football, their impact haven’t been felt in recent years and they are aiming to change the trend in the 2018-19 season.
Barcelona have failed to reach the Champions League final in four consecutive seasons and that isn’t a good stats, considering the club’s reputation in the world.
In a way to bolster his squad so as to lay claim for next season’s Champions League trophy, Barca manager Ernesto Valverde has advised the club’s hierarchy to make move for Mo Salah even if it causes them to lose Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele, 21, joined the Camp Nou outfits last summer but didn’t live to the expectations attached to his signature, no thanks to his early injury.
The Frenchman put up some eye-catching displays in the closing stages of last season but that seems too late to convince Barcelona to retaining his services beyond the summer as they are reportedly ready to offer him to Liverpool in a swap deal.
Diario Gol reports that Valverde is desperate to capture the Egyptian forward as his move for Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann looks unlikely to happen.
