The Spanish press have been crowing that Real Madrid want to sign Liverpool’s Sadio Mane during the international break. There’s now a renewed optimism around Los Blancos after a dire season. Zinedine’s return has boosted the club, although turbulent times may still be ahead.
Zidane knows that Real need a major overhaul. Players seem set to leave the club this summer, while others will be signed. As fans wait to see how the turnover pans out, Liverpool’s Mane has been listed among the top targets.
However, according to football expert in dailyactive, the chances of Mane moving to Madrid are slim. Exploring the possible deal, Balague has explained his thinking why Mane will remain with the Reds.
Let me tell you what I know of that, basically yes we do know for certain that Zidane wanted Mane to come in the summer. Conversations took place, as in Real Madrid showed interest in him but of course Zidane left and that was that. So it was an easy story to recover – and that’s what has happened.
The story’s out there again but the problem is Liverpool have basically no interest whatsoever in getting rid of Mane. There is no buyout clause in hi contract. There is no way to actually get Mane out of Liverpool. So with that in mind I would say that story is basically dead.
Sadio Mane scored 11 goals in last 11 games for Jurgen Klopp’s side. His form means Mane has been touted as one of Real Madrid’s summer transfer targets. Some Senegalese fans aren’t happy with these rumours and have made a banner with a cross through the Madrid crest urging the forward to stay on Merseyside.
The banner was on display after Senegalese rescued his team from defeat – Mane came on 15 minutes from time to score a magnificent solo goal and set up the winner in a 2-1 win over Mali.
The video which was initially shared by Mahmoud Gueye on Twitter, Mane can be seen approaching the jubilant crowd – and he appears to put his thumb up and wave to supporters in the direction of the banner.
Which came earlier this week Liverpool star reacted to a similar banner which had requested his compatriot Kalidou Koulibaly to sign for Manchester United. The former Southampton player was not keen on that idea as he responded by cheekily putting his thumb down.
