Mohamed Salah has been linked with Real Madrid recently

This is the world of inflated transfer fees that are extrapolated to state the current affairs of the game. No longer does a transfer fee make someone go bonkers-- not after what Paris-Saint Germain paid for Neymar.

Indeed, these things have become highly normalized. High prices are now a common thing. As a result, no-one batted an eye when Coutinho was bought for £142 million by F.C. Barcelona— simply because that’s just how the transfer market has become in the last few months.

And we all know that this is just scratching the surface. More players will be bought and sold. More transactions will happen. And more records will be broken. As of now, here are the 5 players that will cost more than Philippe Coutinho should they move clubs in the summer.

#5 Mohamed Salah

It is only logical to name Mohamed Salah. After all, he is a consistent performer for Liverpool and will almost certainly not be allowed to move should any club come calling. And it is only fair; Liverpool can’t afford to lose another star.

It will only just consolidate their place as a club with no ambition.

This is the Liverpool perspective. From the player’s side, if a club like Real Madrid come calling, he will want to move. And given that Salah is currently second in the Golden Boot race of the Premier League, he is going to cost a fortune.

Considering the player’s quality and the position of Liverpool after selling Coutinho for a winter record fee, it only points towards the direction of something over £142 million.
