He showed that at Roma, now at Liverpool,’ Zidane told.’He’s still young and is improving all the time. I don’t talk much about other players, but he is a player I rate a lot.’Zidane is in Abu Dhabi readying his side for  Club World Cup final against Gremio on Saturday.The World Cup winner has clearly been enjoying Salah’s progress this season from afar and the 25 years old is a contender for signing of the season.Having joined from the Eternal City for £34million in the summer, rapid forward has become a crucial member of Liverpool’s team.Salah has notched 18 goals in all competitions and is the Premier League’s top scorer, netting 13 times.With question marks over the futures of Karim Benzema and injury prone Gareth Bale at the Bernabeu, Salah could emerge as a target for  Spanish champions.
