Mohamed Salah's record-breaking exploits at Liverpool have him ready to "jump to the next level" at Real Madrid, says fellow Egyptian Mido.

With Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Champions League saviour Cristiano Ronaldo all rested, Isco starred in a 2-1 win at former club Malaga in LaLiga on Sunday.

A win over struggling Malaga, who are 14 points adrift from safety, would lift Zidane's side above Valencia and into third.

Malaga striker Diego Rolan scored down the other end in the final minute of stoppage time after controlling the ball with his hand but there was no time left for the league's lowest-ranked club to try to add to their goal.

The Galacticos progressed to the semi-finals by the skin of their teeth, nearly blowing a 3-0 first-leg lead against Juventus but ultimately going through thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's 97rd-minute penalty in Madrid to win 4-3 on aggregate.

And according to the latest report by Spanish news outlet Don Balon, Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has told the club's chiefs to sign Isco before the start of the 2018 World Cup. "We approached the game seriously, we respected our opponents and did a good job".

It is thought Zidane is trying to keep him fresh for their upcoming Champions League semi-final with Bayern Munich. Angel Correa opened the scoring in the first half.

"For me every game from now until the end is going to be like a party", Torres told reporters.

Mido's concerns over Salah's return to England were borne out of a previous stint at Chelsea, with game time proving hard to come by for a man untested on a Premier League stage at that time.
