Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is currently on holiday after helping the Anfield giants to the English Premier League title last term.
The Egyptian international latest post on Twitter has got Leeds United talking, with some joking that he is a fan and could be about to join the Elland Road outfit.
Salah shared a picture of an Egyptian Pharaoh painted in Leeds colours:

Leeds reportedly have a £45 million transfer budget for this summer and even that isn’t enough to buy Salah’s left leg.
The Egyptian is worth at least £120 million in the current post-coronavirus market given how important he is to Liverpool, and the Elland Road side won’t be making such signings and breaking the bank anytime soon.
Leeds owner and chairman Andrea Radrizzani has revealed that the club aren’t looking to splash the cash this summer as it is important that the structure and the foundation built over the last two years are kept, admitting it is quality over quantity as far as the squad goes.
They are looking to emulate Sheffield United rather than Aston Villa in their approach to squad-building, and while they won’t be signing a Mo’ Salah in the coming weeks, director of football Victor Orta will hope to work his magic and land a player that can be as influential to Leeds as the Egyptian has been to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
