Liverpool have been urged to sever ties with Mohamed Salah to bring in Erling Haaland if the opportunity arises.
It has been reported that the Reds are one of many clubs interested in bringing the climax to Borussia Dortmund and are one of the main contenders to sign him.
But with a player of Haaland’s caliber huge salaries are added and his acquisition could mean Liverpool would have to sever ties with one of their key players.
And talkSPORT’s Andy Goldstein believes trading Salah for Haaland could be a good investment for the Merseysiders.
He said on Drivetime: “Mohamed Salah is one of, if not the best player in the world at the moment. There is no doubt about it.
“But Haaland is 21, Salah 29. Other than Messi and Ronaldo, it’s very rare that you have a player who, when he becomes the best player in the world, stays there for a very, very long time – like Luka Modric.
“I don’t think Salah will continue these numbers… for him, continuing this as he gets older is going to be very difficult… I would say it’s obvious.
“Haaland is only 21 years old, he’s an outstanding goalscorer, he’s a machine… He’s going to gain about half a million pounds a week.
“You are 13 or 14 until he’s 35, but with Salah you have three years, four tops, for Salah to be amazing.”
Opponents will say Manchester United fan Andy would understandably want Liverpool to part ways with their star man, but he would be happy to see the Red Devils ditch one of their all-time greatest players to get Haaland.
When asked if he would trade Cristiano Ronaldo for Haaland, Andy replied: “Every day of the week.
“It’s obvious because Ronaldo is only one year old, Haaland is ten!
“I think you would get rid of anyone to take Haaland.” You would get rid of Lewandowski and take Haaland. Lewandowski is nearing the end of his career.
