Real Madrid linked with surprise move for Sadio Mane

There has been numerous wingers linked with Real Madrid in past few months.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Real Madrid are linked with surprise move for Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.

The Senegal international joined Liverpool from Southampton for a fee in the region of 41.2 million euros in July 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.

Mane has played 86 times for Liverpool since signing from Southampton, scoring 40 goals and creating 18 assists.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best players in Africa.

As a member of Senegal national football team, Mane won 57 caps and he scored 15 goals.

His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.

Florentino Perez is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him.

According to Teamtalk (via Don Balon), “Real Madrid are plotting a sensational €115million bid for Liverpool star Sadio Mane. Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that Real president Florentino Perez is big admirer of the Senegal international, and that he tried to sign him in the summer but was rebuffed. Los Blancos are struggling to score since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and the former Southampton man is seen as the perfect answer. The report claims that Real Madrid are also keen to reclaim their place as the number one supported team in Africa.”

Liverpool would be wise to keep the Senegal international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Signing the 26-year-old would be a masterstroke from Florentino Perez.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Real Madrid.

How strong that interest is and whether Real Madrid will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
