Liverpool target eyeing Manchester United or Chelsea switch

Liverpool would appear to have been dealt a considerable blow in their hopes of landing Mohamed Salah, with the player having seemingly expressed a desire to join Manchester United, Chelsea or Real Madrid.

21-year-old Salah, who moved to Swiss champions FC Basel in April 2012, has impressed at St. Jakob-Park, playing a starring role for Murat Yakin's men with a series of electrifying performances down the flanks.

Both Liverpool and Premier League rivals Tottenham have been credited with an interest in the Egyptian's signature, but those two sides look set to be disappointed with Salah having revealed somewhat loftier ambitions for his future.

"I'm very proud to have scored two goals against Chelsea. I want to play for one of the best teams in the world.

"My favourites are Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea," he told The Sun in an interview that was cited by the Daily Mirror.

Whether any of that aforementioned trio would be interested in making Salah's dreams a reality, however, remains to be seen.

Chelsea will know all about the player's particular talents, with Salah - reportedly rated at around the £20 million mark - having put in several strong performances against the Blues over the past two seasons - the latest coming with his last-gasp goal that secured Basel a 1-0 Champions League victory on Tuesday evening.

Manchester United are evidently in need of strengthening in the wide areas, with the likes of Ashley Young and Nani failing to live up to their previous billings and January arrival Wilfried Zaha yet to make any sort of lasting impact on manager David Moyes at Old Trafford.
