Juventus have reacted to their Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax by targeting a move for Liverpool forward Mo Salah ahead of next season, according to reports in Italy,
It is believed that the Bianconeri are prepared to offer striker Paulo Dybala in a part-exchange deal, although the Reds are highly unlikely to countenance any bids this summer.
Fans on Twitter have dismissed the report with many questioning why Salah would even consider a move to Juve:
There is not enough money in this world to make me want to sell Salah. Move on Juve.

Why would Salah downgrade to Juve. Wouldn’t make sense

£300 million + Dybala, Costa, Pjanic, Sandro and we will loan Salah for one year to Juventus. 👍🏽

At least half of the Juve team need to be replaced. They are not good enough. Mo is priceless so they can forget about it and find players they can afford.

With Liverpool challenging for the Premier League title and in the semi-finals of the Champions League for the second consecutive year, the Reds are better placed than ever to keep their top stars.
Salah, himself only signed a new contract last July, keeping him at Anfield until 2023, and if things keep progressing as they are, you wouldn’t bet against him reaching the end of that deal, and perhaps even extending his stay for longer.
