SunSport understands Salah, 28, will be the first name on the teamsheet for the rescheduled Games in Japan.

And the Pharaohs are prepared to fly to Anfield to explain why the star striker should put country before club in 2021.

It would mean he will play throughout next summer and miss the start of the 2021-22 Premier League season.

Shawky Gharib, coach of the Egyptian Olympic National team, said: “The only and first name I put in the squad is Mohamed Salah.

“All Egyptian players would like to have the honour to play in the Olympics but all of us wanted Salah so he will be with us.

“I’m ready to put all the pressure on Liverpool to accept his participation, and I could travel to England for that.

“I remember when I was the assistant coach of the Egyptian National Team.

“I travelled to Germany to meet Jurgen Klopp and convince him to let Mohamed Zidan join the team and he accepted.

“We will use Salah of course and the Egyptian Football Federation will play a role.”

Another complicating factor for Liverpool is that Salah would be called up for the Africa Cup of Nations if Egypt qualify.

The event in Cameroon has been moved back 12 months to January 2022.

Gharib added that they are also planning to speak with Aston Villa midfielder Trezeguet about the prospects of going to the Olympics.

leeds united vs fulham premier league live score lineups and updates

Leeds United take on fellow Premier League promoted side Fulham at Elland Road this afternoon as both teams search for their their first win of the season. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are looking to bounce back from last week’s thrilling 4-3 defeat to Liverpool last week on the opening day and the iconic Chilean boss has made one change to his side with captain Liam Cooper replacing Pascal Struijk in defence.

Fulham welcome back Aleksandar Mitrovic to their Premier League starting line-up after scoring in the Carabao Cup win over Ipswich Town this week. The Serbian started on the bench for the Cottagers’ disappointing 3-0 loss to Arsenal last weekend, while there are also top-flight debuts for Alphonse Areola and Kenny Tete.

Sportsmail’s SAM BLITZ will provide live coverage of the first Premier League match at Elland Road for 16 years…

Everton will look to make it two wins from two when they host Premier League new boys West Brom in the early top-flight action.

Carlo Ancelotti has made some astute signings this summer with the likes of James Rodriguez and Allan joining from huge European clubs and the Toffees made an impressive start to their season by beating Tottenham on the road.

The newcomers didn’t receive such a warm welcome back to the top-flight though as they were thumped 3-0 by Leicester. Can they spring a surprise today and get their first three points of the season or will Everton be too strong?

Zinedine Zidane admits Gareth Bale was given icy Madrid farewell but says he did NOT force him out

zinedine zidane admits gareth bale was given icy madrid farewell but says he did not force him out

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he did not say anything to Gareth Bale before he left to sign for Tottenham Hotspur but insisted he had no personal issue with the Wales forward. 

Bale travelled to London on Friday to finalise a return to Tottenham on loan after seven years at Real which witnessed a remarkable haul of trophies and goals but ended with the player barely featuring at the end of last season.

‘I did not speak to him,’ Zidane told a news conference ahead of Real’s first game in LaLiga away to Real Sociedad on Sunday, where they will begin their title defence.

‘But I know what he has done for this club. He always proved his quality and what he has achieved with the club cannot be argued with.’

While Bale was key to Real winning the 2016 Champions League in Zidane’s first season, he was absent from most of the second campaign due to injuries and never managed to re-establish himself as a first-choice player for the Frenchman, even after scoring twice in the 2018 final against Liverpool.

But Zidane disagreed with the perception he forced Bale out.

‘It’s not like that. It’s more complicated. With Bale it’s always about one side against the other. But I’ve never had a problem with Gareth.

‘There will always be things that happen. Now he’s making a change, all we can do is wish him the best… These things happen in football, but I’ve always said he was a spectacular player.’

There will now be more expectation on Real’s joint-most expensive player, Eden Hazard, although the Belgian is unlikely to feature against Real Sociedad.

Hazard’s debut season at Real was marred by two ankle injuries and other fitness troubles. Zidane said he would not rush him back to action.

‘We have more time to prepare for the season and all he needs to do is ensure he gets to 100 or 120 per cent fitness,’ he said.
