It is being reported that Real Madrid has added Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, to their wish list and are set to table an offer in the summer.
New Real manager Zinedine Zidane has long been an admirer of the Senegal international and apparently tried to sign him when he was previously in charge of Los Blancos and that a deal in principle had been agreed only for the player to end up staying on Merseyside following Zidane’s surprise departure.
It now appears that Zidane’s interest is still what it was and that he has decided to have another go at signing the 26-year-old forward.
Liverpool will no doubt fight hard to keep one of their most important players, they have a history of playing hardball and in the event they are forced to sell, extracting the highest price possible.
Mane has been brilliant for the Reds all season, he is integral to Jurgen Klopp’s strategy and it is difficult to see the German sanctioning a move, however, as with everything in football, money may end up being the decisive factor.
Real Madrid really will be shaking up the transfer market in the summer.
