Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam does not believe Mohamed Salah would get opportunities to play at Real Madrid despite his spectacular form this season.

The Egypt international has enjoyed a sensational first campaign at Anfield after signing for a reported £37million fee from Roma, scoring 37 goals across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Salah's form has seen the 25-year-old earn plenty of plaudits, including strong links to Madrid and Barcelona, but Adam is not convinced there would be a starting spot for him at the some of Europe's top clubs.

"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?" the Stoke City midfielder told talkSPORT.

"I don't think he would. I think he will stay there."

Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League, 18 points adrift of Manchester City, but stand as the only side to defeat Pep Guardiola's team in the league this season and will clash with them again in Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Anfield has not celebrated a league title since 1990 – before the inception of the Premier League - but Adam believes his former club are now capable of ending their long wait.

"They are capable of winning the league, I firmly believe that they are," Adam added.

"They're one or two short. They've got Naby Keita coming in over the summer, Emre Can looks like he will go.

"But if they can get another one or two in I think they can challenge."
