WHAT HAPPENED? Amid interest from reigning Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah took a day off from training to travel to London where he visited a museum, clicked photographs of ancient Egyptian artefacts and posted on social media with a caption, "Being a tourist in London on my day off."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Reports emerged last week that Al-Ittihad were ready to place a massive €150 million (£129m/$162m) bid for Salah before the summer window closes. The Egyptian, who has a contract with the Reds until 2025, has shown no real interest in leaving the club this summer.
