Charlie Adam made a pretty ridiculous claim about Mohamed Salah's Liverpool future

Sunderland v Stoke City - Premier League

Saturday afternoon saw yet another instalment of Mohamed Salah's Premier League show.

The Egyptian forward continued his freakish goal scoring exploits with another match-winning strike, securing a priceless 2-1 win for Liverpool away at Crystal Palace.

The victory effectively seals a top four finish after Chelsea's 3-1 loss at home to Tottenham on Sunday.

Salah didn't enjoy his finest game in a red shirt, but he struck when it mattered most, highlighting the world-class ability he truly does possess now.

He's now on 29 Premier League goals for the season, just three short of breaking the all-time record for strikes in a single campaign.

With six games to go, he should do it.

Sadly for Liverpool fans, with such great form comes serious interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Reds have lost Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho to the Spanish giants in recent years and there are genuine fears that Salah could be next.

However, one man who doesn't agree with that theory is former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam and his reasoning is likely to cause quite a stir.

The Stoke City man genuinely believes that Salah would not get into either Barcelona or Real Madrid's teams.

When asked about the Egyptian star's future, Adam said: “Where’s he going to go? It’s difficult for him, where does he go?

“Will he get a game at Real Madrid? Will he get a game at Barcelona? I don’t think he would.

“I think he will stay there.”

Crystal Palace v Liverpool - Premier League

Now, Liverpool fans will like to hear the part about Salah staying, but to say the most in-form goal scorer in European football wouldn't get a game is preposterous.

Real in particular have been lacking a player of Salah's profile all season, while the Egyptian would surely be handed opportunities at the expense of Ousmane Dembele at Barca.

Jurgen Klopp has been adamant that the former Roma man will not be sold in the summer, with rumours suggesting that Liverpool are preparing an enormous contract improvement to keep him happy at the club.

It seems likely he will stay for at least another year, but no one should ever doubt that if he does leave for the Spanish giants, he will be handed an important role in their starting XI.
