Zinedine Zidane has moved to distance himself from talk of a transfer for Mohamed Salah as the forward continues to be linked with Real Madrid.
The Liverpool star has only served to fuel speculation as he refuses to rule out a switch to Spain.
Since moving to Anfield in 2017 the Egyptian has scored over 100 times and won both the Premier League and the Champions League.
When quizzed on whether he would ever consider moving to Spain Salah recently said “maybe one day”.
That comes after he spoke to AS in December and said: “I think Madrid and Barcelona are two top clubs.
“Who knows what will happen in the future, but right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again.”
Despite the Egyptian’s claims Zidane is not interested in addressing the speculation.
“Since he’s not our player, I’m not going to get into that,” he said in his pre-match press conference.
Salah and Liverpool will take on Real Madrid on Tuesday night in the last eight of the Champions League.
It is the first time the two sides will meet since their 2018 Champions League Final which saw Los Blancos come out on top.
Salah had to make an early exit that night in Kiev following a clash with Sergio Ramos, who will be absent for the first-leg.
The Champions League remains Liverpool’s only hope of winning any silverware this season following their difficult league campaign.
Madrid will host the Reds in the first-leg and come into the game having not lost in their last 11 outings.
