Bayern Munich boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that it would be an honor to have Mohamed Salah on his team.
Yet at the same time, he has suggested that the German giants are not currently looking to sign the Egyptian striker.
Salah has only two years left on his current contract at Anfield and the 28-year-old has previously expressed his desire to play for either Real Madrid or Barcelona.
The Bayern legend has praised the winger and compared him to today’s greats like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“At the moment we do not plan to sign Salah, but it would certainly be an honor to have him.” Rummenigge said On Time Sports (per The Daily Mail).
“In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he has the skills to play for the best teams in the world.
“What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared with what Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did it with Barcelona and Real Madrid ”.

Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has always maintained that he is not worried about Salah’s future at Anfield.
Salah, who joined the Reds in 2017 from AS Roma, has been a great success for the club. He has scored 20 or more goals in every season since joining the club and has taken his game to a new level with the German coach.
The Egyptian himself has admitted that he wants to stay at the club forever and break all records, but the decision is not his alone.
Salah has been in prolific form this season, managing 22 goals and four assists in all competitions.
Rummenigge’s comments could be seen as a natural admiration for the player, with no hidden intention of taking the Egyptian away.
