LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp is only willing to sell Mohamed Salah for a world-record transfer fee.
Salah has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid as a result of his incredible form for Liverpool.
Reports in Spain suggest Bernabeu bigwig Florentino Perez has already begun initial talks over a swoop for the Egypt international ahead of the summer transfer window.
But Salah will not come cheap if Liverpool chiefs listen to Klopp.
According to Diario Gol, Klopp values Salah at £200million (€228m).
Paris Saint-Germain shattered the transfer world record last summer when they splurged £198m (€222m) to land Neymar from Barcelona.
Salah, who joined Liverpool for around £38m from Roma last summer, has hit 38 goals in 43 appearances.

Express Sport predicts who will start for Liverpool when they take on Everton in their Premier League clash at Goodison Park on Saturday (12.30pm)
He opened the scoring and created Sadio Mane’s goal in Wednesday night’s 3-0 win against Manchester City to further raise his potential asking price.
Salah is under contract at Anfield until the summer of 2022 and club chiefs are expected to offer improved terms to convince him to stick around.
Despite the claim from Diario Gol that Real Madrid are planning to swoop for Salah, Express Sport understands that Los Blancos have cooled their interest.
Express Sport revealed last weekend that Barcelona have also turned their attention away from Salah after prioritising a move for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

Meanwhile, Klopp is expected to issue an injury update on Salah at a press conference today ahead of tomorrow’s Merseyside derby against Everton (12.30pm).
The Egypt international limped out of the Champions League quarter-final contest against City with a groin problem.
He reportedly assured Klopp he was "all fine, all good" after the game but underwent a scan yesterday to determine the extent of the injury.
